12 Possible Causes for Amenorrhea, Muscle Mass Decreased, Supraclavicular Fat Pads

  • Obesity

    CASE DESCRIPTION: We describe an unusual case of a young girl who presented with clinical triad of obesity, primary amenorrhea and central cord syndrome.[] In elderly patients, obesity induces a decrease in skeletal muscle strength and mass, which is linked to age-related sarcopenia.[] mass, decreasing in starvation and increasing during resistive activity when sufficient protein was ingested.[]

  • Morbid Obesity

    In addition, the amount of muscle in your body tends to decrease with age. This lower muscle mass leads to a decrease in metabolism.[]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    It is characterized by upper body obesity; osteoporosis; hypertension; diabetes mellitus; hirsutism; amenorrhea; and excess body fluid.[] […] hump"), increased supraclavicular fat pads, and white abdominal striae.[] Potential complications of Cushing Syndrome include vulnerability to infections, osteoporosis, hypertension, and a decrease in muscle mass The treatment of Cushing Syndrome[]

  • ACTH-Dependent Cushing Syndrome

    Significantly high levels of cortisol contribute to the development of amenorrhea combined with low estradiol levels.[] Case: A 26-year-old male patient presented with moon face, purplish striae, supraclavicular fat pads and proximal muscle weakness.[] mass.[]

  • Virilization

    The patient was admitted because of primary amenorrhea and signs of virilization at puberty. The chromosome analysis showed a 46, XY karyotype.[] Stigmata of Cushing’s syndrome (facial plethora, striae, dorsocervical or supraclavicular fat pads) were not present. Figure 1.[] Signs of virilization might include: Deepening voice Balding Acne Decreased breast size Increased muscle mass Enlargement of the clitoris Causes At puberty, a girl's ovaries[]

  • Acquired Adrenogenital Syndrome

    The excess quantity of androgens slows down allocation of gonadotrophins at the expense of what cyclic processes in ovaries with emergence of an amenorrhea are broken.[] There is truncal obesity with prominent supraclavicular and dorsal cervical fat pads ("buffalo hump"); the distal extremities and fingers are usually quite slender.[] muscle mass proximal limb weakness hyperglycemia osteoperosis why is there decreased muscle mass in cushing's syndrome atrophy of type 2 muscle fibers from hypercortisolism[]

  • Ovarian Stromal Hyperthecosis

    Hypothalamic amenorrhea Menopause ovarian failure Resistant ovary syndrome ICD-9-CM Coding Information 256.8 is only applicable to female patients.[] She had moon facies with increased supraclavicular fat pads.[] Congenital deficiency of 17-hydroxylase: patient has absence of sexual maturation and primary amenorrhea.[]

  • Nelson Syndrome

    […] characterized by trunkal obesity, moon face, acne, abdominal striae, hypertension, decreased carbohydrate tolerance, protein catabolism, psychiatric disturbances, and osteoporosis, amenorrhea[] fat pad, sometimes known as a 'buffalo hump' purple skin striae easy skin bruising acanthosis nigricans proximal myopathy depression and other mood disorders osteoporosis[] muscle mass and increased fat mass are noted and accompanied by a low metabolic rate which is approximately 60% of normal. 1, 2, 6 There are limited treatment options available[]

  • Congenital Isolated ACTH Deficiency

    Lymphocytic hypophysitis in a patient with amenorrhea and hyperprolactinemia. A case report. J Repro Med 1986;31:211-6. 20. Weimann E, Molenkamp G, Bohles HJ.[] Progressive central (truncal) obesity, facial rounding (moon facies), and supraclavicular and cervicodorsal fat pads (buffalo hump) representing fat redistribution are the[] Other effects include a decrease in skeletal muscle mass, bone mineral density, sexual function, libido, and general well-being.[]

  • Myopathy, Endocrine

    General symptoms include amenorrhea, loss of libido, alabaster skin, lethargy, constipation, and cold intolerance.[] Abdominal striae, truncal obesity, moon facies, supraclavicular fat pads, and a buffalo hump suggest steroid excess, either exogenous or related to Cushing's syndrome.[] Serum CPK may not be elevated in some patients with muscle disease because of decreased muscle mass or the presence of an antibody that binds to the enzyme and interferes[]
