30 Possible Causes for Atrophy of the Small Muscles in the Hands and Feet

  • Radiculomyelopathy

    Progressive muscular atrophy - this is an uncommon form of MND. The small muscles of the hands and feet are usually first affected, but muscle spasticity is absent.[patient.info] The muscles first affected are those used for talking, chewing and swallowing. See separate article Bulbar and Pseudobulbar Palsy for more details.[patient.info]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 1

    Progressive muscular atrophy - this is an uncommon form of MND. The small muscles of the hands and feet are usually first affected, but muscle spasticity is absent.[patient.info] The muscles first affected are those used for talking, chewing and swallowing. See separate article Bulbar and Pseudobulbar Palsy for more details.[patient.info]

  • Young Adult-Onset Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy

    Progressive muscular atrophy - this is an uncommon form of MND. The small muscles of the hands and feet are usually first affected, but muscle spasticity is absent.[patient.info] The muscles first affected are those used for talking, chewing and swallowing. See separate article Bulbar and Pseudobulbar Palsy for more details.[patient.info]

  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

    Progressive muscular atrophy - this is an uncommon form of MND. The small muscles of the hands and feet are usually first affected, but muscle spasticity is absent.[patient.info] The muscles first affected are those used for talking, chewing and swallowing. See separate article Bulbar and Pseudobulbar Palsy for more details.[patient.info]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    Progressive muscular atrophy - this is an uncommon form of MND. The small muscles of the hands and feet are usually first affected, but muscle spasticity is absent.[patient.info] The muscles first affected are those used for talking, chewing and swallowing. See separate article Bulbar and Pseudobulbar Palsy for more details.[patient.info]

See separate article Bulbar and Pseudobulbar Palsy for more details.[patient.info]

  • Bilateral Leg Weakness

    Progressive muscular atrophy - this is an uncommon form of MND. The small muscles of the hands and feet are usually first affected, but muscle spasticity is absent.[patient.info] The muscles first affected are those used for talking, chewing and swallowing. See separate article Bulbar and Pseudobulbar Palsy for more details.[patient.info]

  • Distal Myopathy Type 3

    People with CAV3 -related distal myopathy experience wasting (atrophy) and weakness of the small muscles in the hands and feet that generally become noticeable in adulthood[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] Later in the disease, weakness and muscle atrophy may occur in the hands, resulting in difficulty with fine motor skills.[gne-myopathy.org] […] of the body (distal muscles), such as those of the hands and feet.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]
