  • 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.[]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    We previously reported a patient with Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) who exhibited a benign clinical phenotype and marked expression of utrophin on the muscle cell membrane. The patient developed multiple episodes of thrombosis (middle cerebral and femoral arteries) in the course of the disease. We re-examined[…][]

  • Primary Hyperparathyroidism

    Recent data demonstrate decreased fracture risk after operation for asymptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism. We performed a revised cost-effectiveness analysis comparing parathyroidectomy versus observation while incorporating fracture risk reduction. A Markov transition-state model was created comparing[…][]

  • Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy

    Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD) is an autosomal dominant disorder of middle age presenting as progressive dysphagia and eyelid ptosis, due to short expansions of the GCG trinucleotide repeat (from GCG6 to GCG8-13) in the polyadenylate binding-protein nuclear 1 (PABPN1) gene. OPMD is rarely seen in Asians[…][]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    Abstract Objectives: The study aimed to investigate the effects of a combined functional and aerobic exercise program on aerobic capacity, muscle strength, and functional mobility in a group of patients with sporadic inclusion body myositis (IBM). Methods: Aerobic capacity, muscle strength, and functional capacity[…][]

  • Steroid Myopathy

    Steroid myopathy is a condition characterized by weakness of the proximal muscles of the arms and legs and the flexor muscles of the neck. It can be caused by excessive endogenous or exogenous steroids and can be either acute in onset or chronic. Steroid myopathy (SM) was first described in 1932 by Cushing. It[…][]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome is a rare, but reasonably well-understood, antibody-mediated autoimmune disease that is caused by serum auto-antibodies and results in muscle weakness and autonomic dysfunction. One half of the patients have an idiopathic form, the other half a tumour-associated form of the[…][]
