601 Possible Causes for Blepharoptosis, Possibly Scoliosis

Did you mean: Blepharoptosis, Possibly, Scoliosis

  • Syringomyelia

    Risks of surgery are substantial, with possible neurologic progression.[gait.aidi.udel.edu] […] deficit and the size of the major curve of the scoliosis.[doi.org] Young age, atypical curve, rapid curve progression, and back pain associated with scoliosis should alert clinicians to the possible presence of syringomyelia ( 31 ).[ispn.guide]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    Some patients with mild FCMD can sit at the age of puberty, but progression to scoliosis is possible.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] To date, treatment for patients is supportive for symptoms such as joint contractures, respiratory failure and scoliosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When comparing patients with and without scoliosis, the increases in APCF and UPCF were more pronounced in those without scoliosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Turner Syndrome

    Scoliosis The incidence of scoliosis in TS patients was 0.69%, compared with 0.39% among non-TS patients.[doi.org] […] thyroiditis (25.2%), inflammatory bowel disease (1.8%), congenital cardiovascular anomaly (11.8%), urinary tract malformation (11.8%), low bone mineral density (BMD) (42.9%), scoliosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The incidence of certain events known to be associated with rhGH (targeted events), including intracranial hypertension, slipped capital femoral epiphysis, scoliosis, and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    He had a bifid uvula, bilaterally duplicated thumbs and scoliosis. Additionally, he had hypertelorism, a wide forehead and flattening of mid-face.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Homozygous hPDGF-A tg mice exhibit deformity of the spinal cord (scoliosis) and die within the first few postnatal weeks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    Scoliosis and other spinal deformities are often diagnosed in people who show CMT at an early age and some people experience hip and knee dislocations while some are born[science.jrank.org] People with muscular dystrophy may eventually need to use a breathing assistance device (ventilator), initially at night but possibly also during the day.[mayoclinic.org] Kids with SMA can develop scoliosis (a curved spine) if the back muscles are weak.[kidshealth.org]

  • 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] Over the next 4 years, the patient developed dysphagia, palatal paralysis, weight loss, decreased ocular motility, scoliosis, shortness of breath, and obstructive apnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PURPOSE: To clinically characterize blepharoptosis in Hispanic New Mexicans with oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy and examine eyelid surgery outcomes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Malpuech Syndrome

  • Hypermobility Syndrome

    These might include clinical findings such as severe dislocations, more florid skin signs and in particularly its elasticity, a large curvature of the spine (a scoliosis),[web.archive.org] These sequelae include acute ligament and soft tissue injury, overuse injury, joint instability, possible increase in fractures and scoliosis, and increased frequency of uterine[web.archive.org] Back problems since childhood or adolescence: lumbago due to scoliosis, hyperlordosis, disc disease or HNP.[reumatologia-dr-bravo.cl]
