275 Possible Causes for Atrophic Fibers

  • Dementia

    Local amyloidosis is known to occur in the atrophic form of general paresis.[doi.org] ., 1985a , b ) is the major constituent of neurofibrillary tangles and curly fibers.[doi.org] They indicate that curly fibers in AD correspond to individual spirochetes, and their agglomeration in colonies produce senile plaques.[doi.org]

  • Adult-Onset Nemaline Myopathy

    (B)Higher magnification of the rod bodies in two atrophic fibers (trichrome stain; bar 25 ).[documents.tips] The diagnosis of SLONM is based on muscle biopsy findings of nemaline bodies, or rods, easily identified by Gomori trichrome staining in atrophic or non-atrophic fibers.[em-consulte.com] Muscle Fibers on Biopsy 554 Case 89A A Woman with Muscle Weakness and a Skin Rash 559 Case 90 A Man with Muscle Pains 567 Case 91 An Older Woman with Progressive Muscle Weakness[books.google.com]

  • Childhood Dermatomyositis

    The atrophic fibers showed the following characteristics: (1) decreased cytochrome c oxidase (CCO) activity, (2) rare positive reaction with acridine orange (AO) staining,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Fiber-Type Disproportion Myopathy

    Type I fibers predominated with small and atrophic type II fibers which is unusual, especially when the child did not have any other clinical or biochemical abnormality to[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] While most of the type 1 myofibers were atrophic or normal in size, the type 2 fibers showed universal hypertrophy.[jpatholtm.org] […] family with three siblings (12-year-old boy, 9-year-old girl, and 6-year-old boy) with clinical features of congenital myopathy, where muscle biopsy in the eldest sib showed fiber-type[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Oculopharyngodistal Myopathy

    Muscle biopsy uncovered changes in fiber size and the presence of atrophic fibers with rimmed vacuoles of varying diameter, and core-like structures in type I fibers.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Muscle Fibers on Biopsy 554 Case 89A A Woman with Muscle Weakness and a Skin Rash 559 Case 90 A Man with Muscle Pains 567 Case 91 An Older Woman with Progressive Muscle Weakness[books.google.com] Man with Proximal Muscle Weakness 545 Case 87 A Woman with Weakness Elevated Cholesterol and Serum Creatine Kinase Levels 550 Case 88 An Older Woman with Leg Weakness and Atrophic[books.google.com]

  • Distal Myopathy Type Tateyama

    Hypertrophic fibers larger than 100 μm and angulated or rounded atrophic fibers are shown (A, B).[ng.neurology.org] Muscle Fibers on Biopsy 554 Case 89A A Woman with Muscle Weakness and a Skin Rash 559 Case 90 A Man with Muscle Pains 567 Case 91 An Older Woman with Progressive Muscle Weakness[books.google.de] , some very atrophic fibers, and proliferation of adipose and fibrous tissue (hematoxylin and eosin staining, 100).[gooa.las.ac.cn]

  • Distal Myopathy

    There was no fiber type grouping. Atrophic fibers were predominantly type 2.[karger.com] […] associated with certain "neuropathic" features, such as angular fibers, clustering of atrophic fibers, pyknotic nuclear clumps and fiber type predominance [14-16].[slideheaven.com] Immunofluorescence microscopy of WDM biopsies showed a focal increase of TIA1 in atrophic and vacuolated fibers.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Autosomal Recessive Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2G

    […] splitting, atrophic and hypertrophic fibers.[bmcclinpathol.biomedcentral.com] (A) Severe variation in fiber calibre, showing groups of atrophic fibers (arrow) and groups of hypertrofic fibers (HE 100x).[bmcclinpathol.biomedcentral.com] There were groups of atrophic and groups of hypertrophic fibers (Figure 2 A), with type 2 fiber predominance (data not shown). Frequent rimmed vacuoles were observed.[bmcclinpathol.biomedcentral.com]

  • Nemaline Myopathy Type 7

    The diagnosis of SLONM is based on muscle biopsy findings of nemaline bodies, or rods, easily identified by Gomori trichrome staining in atrophic or non-atrophic fibers.[em-consulte.com] Scattered angular, atrophic, esterase-positive muscle fibers were also present.[the-medical-dictionary.com] The muscle biopsy shows myonecrosis , phagocytosis of necrotic fibers, regeneration, and non-specific structural changes (central nuclei, split fibers, atrophic and deformed[neuropathology-web.org]
