    Pressure - Low pressure Possibly due to ciliary body detachment SLE: L/L: Blepharoptosis. Brow ptosis.[eyewiki.aao.org] Clinical Presentation: Variable, progressive disability; facial and distal limb muscle weakness with myotonia; cataracts; cardiac conduction defects; diabetes mellitus; and[ajnr.org] The clinical course led progressively to major disability with severe proximal weakness and atrophy and, later on, distal weakness, atrophy and neck extensor weakness responsible[doi.org]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    MuSK MG should be considered if there is facial or tongue weakness with atrophy, or weakness that predominates in neck or shoulder muscles.[docksci.com] MG follows a variable course, but usually progresses.[docksci.com]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

  • Myasthenic Crisis

    INTRODUCTION: Myasthenic crisis is a great threat to patients with myasthenia gravis. Usage of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) to prevent intubation and timing of extubating of patients in myasthenic crisis are important issues though not well documented. METHODS: To explore the factors predicting NIV success and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy

    Progressive, usually symmetrical blepharoptosis, with or without dysphagia, appears during middle age. Muscular weakness in the limbs can be noted in some patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other signs that occur as the disease progresses include tongue weakness and atrophy, proximal upper and lower extremity weakness, dysphonia, dysarthria, facial muscle weakness[orpha.net] PURPOSE: To clinically characterize blepharoptosis in Hispanic New Mexicans with oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy and examine eyelid surgery outcomes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Prior animal studies have shown that silencing SOD1 led to preservation of grip strength and a delay in the onset of motor function deficits [ 125, 126 ].[doi.org] In cranial nerves, common symptoms are atrophy of facial muscles and progressive bulbar palsy (PBP).[flexikon.doccheck.com] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org]
