40 Possible Causes for Bilateral Pelvic Girdle Weakness

  • Erb Muscular Dystrophy

    Symptoms - Muscular dystrophy limb girdle type 2A- Erb type Muscle weakness is first evident in the shoulder girdle and later in the pelvic girdle.[] The disability experienced by patients is fairly minimal, although frozen shoulder syndrome may significantly alter function if it is bilateral.[]

  • Spinal Paralytic Poliomyelitis

    Seite 11 - ... a disadvantage for a given individual, resulting from an impairment or a disability, that limits or prevents the fulfilment of a role that is normal (depending on age, sex, and social and cultural factors) for that individual. ‎ Seite 310 - Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But[…][]

  • Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy

    Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD) is a late-onset autosomal dominantly inherited disorder characterized by dysphagia, ptosis, and proximal limb weakness and is caused by germline mutations (triplet repeat expansions) in the polyadenylate binding protein nuclear 1 (PABPN1) gene. To describe a 70-year-old[…][]

  • Primary Hyperparathyroidism

    Little is known about the natural changes in parathyroid function after successful parathyroid surgery for primary hyperparathyroidism. The association of intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) and calcium (Ca) with "temporary hypoparathyroidism" and "hungry bone syndrome" (HBS) was evaluated. Potential risk factors[…][]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    History Symptoms of Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) usually begin insidiously and progress slowly. Many patients have symptoms for months or years before the diagnosis is made. Weakness is the major symptom. Weak muscles may ache and are occasionally tender. Proximal muscles are more affected than[…][]

  • Steroid Myopathy

    Long-term steroid use has a well-documented risk of myopathy that imposes functional limitations for patients and challenges for health care providers. Proximal weakness from steroid myopathy affects support structures around the pelvic girdle and likely predisposes patients to somatic dysfunction. To the[…][]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    In advanced Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), patients with high bone fracture risk due to osteoporosis, it is difficult to measure spinal bone mineral density (BMD) because of maintaining proper posture. This study began with the idea that if we diagnose and manage osteoporosis by predicting spinal BMD through[…][]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    Limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 2A (LGMD2A) is the most frequent form of LGMD worldwide. Comprehensive clinical assessment and laboratory testing is essential for diagnosis of LGMD2A. Muscle immunoblot analysis of calpain-3 is the most useful tool to direct genetic testing, as detection of calpain-3 deficiency[…][]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    Dyspnea in the elderly can be due to a wide array of pathologies. We discuss a case of an elderly gentleman with an extensive cardiovascular history presenting with acute worsening of chronic dyspnea. Because of persistent respiratory distress unresponsive to standard therapy for congestive heart failure,[…][]

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    Polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR), a common disease in individuals older than 50 in the western world, is characterized by bilateral inflammatory pain involving the shoulder girdle and less commonly the neck and pelvic girdle. The main goals of the currently available treatment are to induce remission and prevent relapse.[…][]
