403 Possible Causes for Bilateral Pelvic Girdle Weakness, Creatine Phosphokinase Increased, Percussion Myotonia

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    Patients with myotonic dystrophy type 1 may present subtle myotonia and it may be necessary to search for tenar muscle percussion myotonia 15.[doi.org] We present a 19-year-old girl with epilepsy and elevated creatine phosphokinase (CPK) concentration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Due to increased CPK, myopathy was suspected and muscle biopsy was performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Darius Weems is on a mission, but even though he is only 23 years old, it's a race against time. Darius, an aspiring rapper and star of the documentary, "Darius Goes West," suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a rare genetic disorder that results in the disintegration of muscle tissue. Legs and arms are[…][abcnews.go.com]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    High serum creatine kinase Increased CPK Increased creatine kinase Increased creatine phosphokinase Increased serum CK Increased serum creatine kinase Increased serum creatine[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] Background The dystrophinopathies include a spectrum of muscle diseases The mild end of the spectrum includes asymptomatic increases in serum concentration of creatine phosphokinase[bcidaho.com] […] kinase Elevated blood creatine phosphokinase Elevated circulating creatine phosphokinase Elevated creatine kinase Elevated serum CPK Elevated serum creatine phosphokinase[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    Abstract Sporadic inclusion body myositis is considered to be a slowly progressive myopathy. Long-term follow-up data are, however, not yet available. Follow-up data are important with a view to informing patients about their prognosis and selecting appropriate outcome measures for clinical trials. We performed a[…][doi.org]

  • Myotonia Congenita

    The diagnosis were based upon family history, clinical findings of percussion myotonia, had grip myotania, prominent muscular hypertrophy and confirmed by electromyographic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Distribution/anatomy Time course Onset/age Myotonia is usually mild, approximately 50% may have percussion myotonia.[rrnursingschool.biz] On examination he showed percussion myotonia. There was no grip myotonia or eyelid myotonia. Nerve conduction studies were normal.[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Myotonia (prolonged muscle contraction) occurs spontaneously or is elicited by voluntary activity or by mild stimulation, such as tapping on a muscle (percussion myotonia)[neuropathology-web.org] The diagnosis of muscular dystrophy is based on the results of muscle biopsy, increased creatine phosphokinase (CpK3), electromyography, and genetic testing.[en.wikipedia.org] […] typically elicited by percussion of the thenar eminence with a tendon hammer—‘percussion myotonia’.[doi.org]

  • Paramyotonia Congenita

    They experience neither grip nor percussion myotonia during warm weather, whereas myotonia is provoked by cold. Her younger son has no symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Laboratory examinations revealed elevated serum creatine phosphokinase (810 IU/I; normal range 0-150).[ci.nii.ac.jp] Also of diagnostic importance are the myotonic reactions inducible at room temperature, such as percussion myotonia, active myotonia and paradoxical myotonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    Myotonia (prolonged muscle contraction) occurs spontaneously or is elicited by voluntary activity or by mild stimulation, such as tapping on a muscle (percussion myotonia)[neuropathology-web.org] The diagnosis of muscular dystrophy is based on the results of muscle biopsy, increased creatine phosphokinase (CpK3), electromyography, and genetic testing.[en.wikipedia.org] The laboratory investigations displayed an increased level of serum creatine phosphokinase (CK) present since the neonatal period and persisting elevated in all children with[doi.org]

  • Myopathy

    Myotonia can be elicited by percussion, occurs by impaired relaxation of muscle due to repetitive depolarization of the muscle.[doi.org] The laboratory evaluation was remarkable for the marked increase in the serum lactate dehydrogenase and creatine phosphokinase levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Look for other associated signs including myotonia, paramyotonia, and muscle hypertrophy to exclude other non-systemic causes of muscle weakness.[doi.org]

  • Myoadenylate Deaminase Deficiency

    "Action" or grip myotonia may be seen. However, percussion myotonia is rare. There may be an associated neuropathy.[neuroweb.us] phosphokinase, hypoketotic hypoglycemia, and increased lipid in muscle.[rheumaknowledgy.com] […] on hands, brachial biceps and deltoids (triggered by percussion), and difficulty in starting gait due to myotonia.[scielo.br]
