138 Possible Causes for Atrophy of Intrinsic Hand Muscles

  • Distal Myopathy Type 3

    The following features are however constantly present: atrophy of the intrinsic hand muscles, facial muscle involvement, myotonia and dystrophic changes in nonmuscular tissue[neuroweb.us] […] discomfort Weakness Symmetric Distal Arms Legs Arms: Forearm pronators, Finger flexors, Intrinsic hand muscles Legs: Ankle evertors, Plantar-flexors (Calf atrophy) Differential[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] : Intrinsic muscles Legs: Distal Proximal: Normal Atrophy: Anterior tibial Contractures: Ankles Sensory loss Distal Arms & Legs Later in disease course Course Very slow progression[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

  • Distal Myopathy

    Weakness and atrophy of the anterior tibial muscles started between the ages of 8 and 16 years, followed by atrophy of intrinsic hand muscles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The following features are however constantly present: atrophy of the intrinsic hand muscles, facial muscle involvement, myotonia and dystrophic changes in nonmuscular tissue[neuroweb.us] […] discomfort Weakness Symmetric Distal Arms Legs Arms: Forearm pronators, Finger flexors, Intrinsic hand muscles Legs: Ankle evertors, Plantar-flexors (Calf atrophy) Differential[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

  • Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy

    Later on, he developed scapuloperoneal and truncal muscle weakness, along with atrophy of the intrinsic hand and foot muscles, pes cavus, claw toes and a distal symmetric[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    We found 19 patients with weakness and atrophy of the intrinsic hand muscles, and 13 patients with weakness proximal to the hand muscles to serve as a control group.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The clinical and radiological findings were compared to a control group of patients with weakness of the arm or forearm muscles and similar mid-cervical spondylosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Paresthesia

    […] weakness, numbness of ulnar side of hand Decreased finger abduction, decreased thumb adduction, atrophy of intrinsic hand muscles (if severe), claw hand (if severe), decreased[chiro.org] […] tunnel Ulnar nerve at elbow Leaning on elbow, shallow ulnar groove, increased forearm flexion/extension, elbow fracture, rheumatoid arthritis, immobilization Elbow pain, hand[chiro.org]

  • Autosomal Recessive Spastic Paraplegia Type 43

    Susanne A. Schneider is a consultant neurologist and clinician scientist at the Department of Neurology in Kiel, Germany. She completed her neurology specialty training at the Queen Square Institute of Neurology in London, England and the University of Lübeck, Germany. She has always had a great interest in[…][books.google.com]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    NTE-MND subjects exhibited progressive lower extremity spastic weakness that began in childhood and was later associated with atrophy of distal leg and intrinsic hand muscles[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Oculopharyngodistal Myopathy

    She had symmetrical atrophy of intrinsic hand muscles and distal leg muscles.[jnnp.bmj.com] Weakness of wrist extensors, finger extensors, and intrinsic hand muscles impairs function. Ankle dorsiflexor weakness may cause footdrop.[clinicalgate.com] Affected patients have a typical “hatchet-faced” appearance due to temporalis, masseter, and facial muscle atrophy and weakness.[clinicalgate.com]

  • Syringomyelia

    […] of intrinsic hand muscles or fasciculations may also be an early finding.[now.aapmr.org] Areflexia, muscle weakness, and atrophy results, commonly involving the hand intrinsics.[jneuro.com] […] are altered reflexes. 2 When associated with Chiari malformations, headache or neck pain can by exacerbated by maneuvers that increase CSF pressures, such as a Valsalva. 1 Atrophy[now.aapmr.org]

  • Cervical Nerve Root Avulsion

    Diagnosis Paresthesias in forearm and hand commonly precede the development of pain Atrophy of intrinsic hand muscles Pain or paresthesias when arms held overhead Sensory[w3.cns.org]
