292 Possible Causes for Bilateral Arm Weakness, Onset of Symptoms in First or Second Decade of Life

  • Erb Muscular Dystrophy

    The onset of symptoms usually occurs in the first or second decade of life. Affected individuals usually present with impairment of upper extremity elevation.[icd10data.com]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    Background Cervical spondylosis is a common degenerative condition of the cervical spine. It is most likely caused by age-related changes in the intervertebral disks. Clinically, several syndromes, both overlapping and distinct, are seen. These include neck and shoulder pain, suboccipital pain and headache, radicular[…][emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    The longer survival of patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy due to advances in clinical care has increased the incidence of Duchenne muscular dystrophy-associated cardiomyopathy, a nearly consistent feature in the third decade of life. A 26-year-old patient with Duchenne muscular dystrophy experienced[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Here, we report a patient who presented with progressive left arm weakness and was found to have bilateral MRI plexus abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Regionally isolated variants of ALS include flail arm syndrome, which involves bilateral proximal and typically predominant LMN arm weakness, and the flail leg syndrome, characterized[doi.org]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Abstract Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) is a progressive disorder producing asymmetrical weakness and muscle wasting. Case reports suggest that patients with MMN improve after cyclophosphamide therapy, but not after prednisone or plasmapheresis. Because MMN is likely to be immune mediated, we investigated the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Platybasia

    Abstract Descriptions of the flattening (platybasia) of the skull base and the upward displacement(impression) of the basilar and condylar portions of the occipitalbone by the upper cervical spine date to the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Anatomical measurements to display these abnormalities were begun in[…][doi.org]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    Glycogen storage disease type 2, sometimes also referred to as Pompe disease, is a genetic disorder inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. Lack of lysosomal acid α-glucosidase results in the accumulation of glycogen within the cell organelles, and this may cause cardiac and skeletal muscle damage as well as[…][symptoma.com]

  • Tick-Borne Encephalitis

    J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry. 2007 Aug; 78(8): 909–910. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Tick borne encephalitis (TBE) virus causes the most important arthropod transmitted disease in central Europe. In endemic areas, TBE has an incidence of 1.2 per 10 000 and a mortality of approximately 1%.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hereditary ATTR Amyloidosis

    History The subtype of transthyretin (TTR) protein mutation, its tissue distribution, and the amount of amyloid deposition largely determine the clinical manifestations of TTR-related amyloidosis (ATTR). The key characteristic of ATTR that should raise clinical suspicion for this disorder remains the reliable[…][emedicine.medscape.com]
