26 Possible Causes for Abnormal Gait due to Muscle Weakness

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1F

    This updated and expanded new edition of a successful book describes genetic diagnostic entities of neuromuscular disorders. Neuromuscular syndromes are presented clinically either as a case study or as an overview from the literature, accompanied by text presenting molecular defects, and differential diagnosis.[…][books.google.com]

  • Cystocele

    […] this is due to both abductor muscle weakness and limb length inequality patients with bilateral involvement have a waddling gait and increased lumbar lordosis (similar to[gait.aidi.udel.edu] CLINICAL PRESENTATION: most commonly seen between when the child begins to ambulate and age six most common complaint is a progressive gait abnormality in unilateral involvement[gait.aidi.udel.edu]

  • Coxa Vara

    […] this is due to both abductor muscle weakness and limb length inequality patients with bilateral involvement have a waddling gait and increased lumbar lordosis (similar to[gait.aidi.udel.edu] CLINICAL PRESENTATION: most commonly seen between when the child begins to ambulate and age six most common complaint is a progressive gait abnormality in unilateral involvement[gait.aidi.udel.edu]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    The waddle is due to weakness in the gluteus maximus and gluteus medius muscles and the patient's inability to support a single-leg stance.[emedicine.medscape.com] Other early features include a gait abnormality, which classically is a waddling, wide-based gait with hyperlordosis of the lumbar spine and toe walking.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Autosomal Recessive Spastic Paraplegia Type 26

    SPG26 is a complicated form characterized by onset in the first 2 decades of life of gait abnormalities due to lower limb spasticity and muscle weakness.[malacards.org] […] form of complicated spastic paraplegia characterized by onset in the first 2 decades of life of gait abnormalities due to lower limb spasticity and muscle weakness.[malacards.org] In some forms of the disorder, bladder symptoms (such as incontinence) may appear, or the weakness and stiffness may spread to other parts of the body.[malacards.org]

  • Quadratus Lumborum Syndrome

    Abnormal gait is common due to stiff back as a result of paraspinal muscle spasm. The pelvis is tilted downward on the side opposite to the affected muscle.[indianjpain.org] […] with limitation of motion and weakness. [11] Careful examination of gait, posture, and alignment is important.[indianjpain.org] [4], [6], [7], [8] There will also be jump sign and local twitch response. [4], [7], [9], [10] The resistance to stretching leads to apparent shortening of the affected muscle[indianjpain.org]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    Children are said to have more profound gait abnormalities than adults.[emedicine.medscape.com] Motor system Usually relatively symmetric weakness of both proximal and distal muscles is present in upper and lower extremities. Muscle tone can be normal or decreased.[emedicine.medscape.com] (ie, due to deficit of proprioception in the feet).[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Cerebral Palsy

    […] compromised proprioceptive pathways secondary deviations growth-related deviations that arise due to abnormal loading in the setting of primary gait deviations, including[orthobullets.com] : anatomic shortening of muscle-tendon units (e.g., myotatic contractures) persistent bony deformities (e.g., femoral anteversion) joint subluxations/dislocations (e.g., hip[orthobullets.com] […] gait expected between 12 to 18 months old in non-CP children Pathophysiology Divided into: primary deviations those caused by the primary CNS insult including spasticity weakness[orthobullets.com]

  • Congenital Hypothyroidism without Goiter

    Intention tremor Progressive muscle weakness Respiratory insufficiency due to muscle weakness Cholelithiasis Respiratory tract infection Abnormality of immune system physiology[mendelian.co] […] of coagulation Decreased nerve conduction velocity Limb muscle weakness Unsteady gait Hemolytic anemia Dyskinesia Neuronal loss in central nervous system Optic disc pallor[mendelian.co] […] pseudohermaphroditism Gonadoblastoma Ambiguous genitalia, male Diffuse mesangial sclerosis Ambiguous genitalia, female Prolonged bleeding time Anuria Sparse eyebrow Anemia Abnormality[mendelian.co]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1H
