215 Possible Causes for Atrophic Muscle Fibers

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Muscle biopsy showed atrophic, necrotic, and regenerating fibers, endomysial macrophages, and vacuolar degeneration, interpreted as hypokalemic myopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sacral Radiculopathy

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    […] histological changes to the nerves and muscle fibers of the soft palate and uvula.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] have consistently demonstrated that increasing severity of snoring and sleep apnea is associated with worsening sensory nerve function of the palate in association with atrophic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Adult-Onset Nemaline Myopathy

    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 Muscle Fibers on[books.google.com] 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] 84 A Woman with Progressive Proximal Muscle Weakness 533 Case 85 A Sedentary Man with Acute Respiratory Failure and Myoglobinuria 539 Case 86 A Uremic Man with Proximal Muscle[books.google.com]

  • Spinal and Bulbar Muscular Atrophy

    The angulated atrophic muscle fibers formed bundles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We detected atrophic fibers in the muscle of SBMA, ALS and neurogenic atrophy patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and grouped atrophic fibers as well as enlarged fibers with central nuclei.[dx.doi.org]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    The pathological features vary, although atrophic type I muscle fibres are found in half the patients.[orpha.net] 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] Etiology It is caused by mutation of the MYH7 gene (14q11) that encodes the myosin heavy chain of type 1 fibers of skeletal muscle and cardiac ventricles (mutations have been[orpha.net]

  • Rhabdomyosarcoma

    In contrast to previous studies, rare non-RMS (7 of 107) displayed focal nuclear reactivity, and entrapped atrophic or regenerative skeletal muscle fibers also stained positively[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
