1,106 Possible Causes for Arrhythmias May Occur, EMG Shows Neurogenic Abnormalities, Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy

  • Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Spinal muscular atrophy is characterised by slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy of the limb muscles associated with motor neurone loss in the spinal cord.[patient.info] Bulbar muscular atrophy affects the bulbar and facial muscles with motor neurone loss in the brainstem. [ 1 ] The spinal muscular atrophies (SMAs) are a spectrum of genetically[patient.info] They all result in progressive lower motor neurone weakness. The gene defect is on chromosome 5q and the implicated gene is called survival motor neurone gene 1 (SMN1).[patient.info]

  • X-Linked Scapuloperoneal Myopathy

    The EMG shows firing of motor units, reflecting an origin from spontaneous neural discharge.[basicmedicalkey.com] Signs: there is ptosis, facial weakness, atrophy of the sternocieidomastoid muscles, cataracts, and decreased intelligence.[academic.sun.ac.za] . 18 Later, distal leg weakness with atrophy of the peroneal muscles is noted; mild facial weakness may be also be observed.[obgynkey.com]
