  • Neuropathy

    Intrinsic muscle wasting in the hands begins later. Vibration, pain, and temperature sensation decreases in a stocking-glove pattern. Deep tendon reflexes are absent.[merckmanuals.com] These deformities are a result of progressive weakness and atrophy of intrinsic foot muscles. A similar claw-like deformity may be observed in the hand.[clevelandclinicmeded.com] Patients with type I may present in middle childhood with footdrop and slowly progressive distal muscle atrophy, causing stork leg deformity.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    These deformities are a result of progressive weakness and atrophy of intrinsic foot muscles. A similar claw-like deformity may be observed in the hand.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Polyneuropathy

    Intrinsic foot muscle weakness was present in 35 patients (38%), hand weakness in 17 (18%), and foot and hand weakness in 14 (15%).[jamanetwork.com] These deformities are a result of progressive weakness and atrophy of intrinsic foot muscles. A similar claw-like deformity may be observed in the hand.[clevelandclinicmeded.com] On motor examination, mild distal weakness was observed in 38 patients (41%) and distal muscle atrophy was observed in 14 (15%).[jamanetwork.com]

  • 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]

  • 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] […] 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]

  • 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.[medscape.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]

  • 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]
