94 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Fainting Spells, Progressive Contractures

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    […] without cardiomyopathy (p 0.001, both) and controls (p 0.05, both).[] Acute renal failure secondary to progressively decreasing renal blood flow (hepatorenal syndrome) may develop.[] Light-to-moderate alcohol intake is associated with a decreased incidence of coronary heart disease, while heavy drinking may be a precursor for cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy Type 1

    Abstract The original Virginia family with X‐linked muscular dystrophy with early contractures and cardiomyopathy (Emery‐Dreifuss type) has been reinvestigated 25 years later[] Confusion with the common idiopathic toe walking inhibits therapy and prophylaxis of progressive contractures and skeleton deformities.[] These include early-onset contractures, very slow progressive muscle weakness and degeneration involving the upper arms and lower legs, and cardiac (heart) muscle disease.[]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    (0.50–0.66) Cardiac diseases Acute MI 2.6 (0.9) 7.8 (1.3) 0.31 (0.27–0.34) Chronic ischemic heart disease 4.0 (0.9) 11.7 (0.7) 0.32 (0.29–0.35) Congestive heart failure/cardiomyopathy[] Erosion of the articular cartilage, together with ligamentous changes, result in deformity and contractures. As the disease progresses, pain and deformity increase.[] Flexion contractures may require intensive exercise, casting, or immobilization (eg, splinting) in progressively more stretched-open positions.[]

  • Woodhouse Sakati Syndrome

    Pancreas / glucose metabolism Hypofunction Diabetes mellitus types: type 1 type 2 MODY 1 2 3 4 5 6 complications coma angiopathy ketoacidosis nephropathy neuropathy retinopathy cardiomyopathy[] Patients usually have hypotonia, kyphoscoliosis and limb contractures.[] Ectodermal dysplasia, sensorineural hearing loss, and distinctive facial features Sillence syndrome Urogenital adysplasia MOGS-CDG (CDG-IIb) Familial Mediterranean fever Cardiomyopathy[]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 6

    Cardiomyopathy is a rare complication of liver pathology in GSD VI.[] In contrast, late onset disease may manifest in adulthood with progressive muscle weakness.[] Rare variants may cause muscle dysfunction, peripheral neuropathy, proximal renal tubule acidosis, or severe cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1E

    Inherited cardiomyopathies.[] – not usually very rapidly progressive – joint contractures may be present 2B dysferlin 15-25 usually (variable) no no – usually slow progression – muscle pain and swelling[] spell 0001279 5%-29% of people have these symptoms Achilles tendon contracture Shortening of the achilles tendon Tight achilles tendon Last updated: 12/19/2017 Limb-girdle[]

  • Unverricht-Lundborg Syndrome

    ., what sorts of spells are likely to beset infants, children, or the elderly?[] […] renal tubular acidosis with deafness Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy Cornelia de Lange syndrome Diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis Familial isolated dilated cardiomyopathy[] […] weakness, distal contractures and rigid spine Muscular enolase deficiency Muscular glycogenosis Muscular hypertrophy-hepatomegaly-polyhydramnios syndrome Muscular lipidosis[]

  • Juvenile Primary Lateral Sclerosis

    Autosomal agammaglobulinemia CLN3 disease Congenital bilateral absence of vas deferens Cystic fibrosis Early-onset autosomal dominant Alzheimer disease Familial isolated dilated cardiomyopathy[] […] disease; Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker syndrome; Fatal familial insomnia) 10-15% of all human prion disease PSEN1 Alzheimer’s disease 3 (AD3); Pick disease; FTD; Dilated cardiomyopathy[] Poorly managed spasticity, for example, can lead to soft tissue contractures, immobility, and a decrease in function [9] .[]

  • Oculomotor Apraxia

    Dilated cardiomyopathy with ataxia syndrome (DCMA) is a rare mitochondrial condition associated with early onset cardiomyopathy and non-progressive ataxia.[] Brain imaging shows progressive cerebellar and sometimes cerebral atrophy.[] Cardiomyopathy inFriedreich's Ataxia: Exemplifying the Challenges Faced by the Cardiologists in the Management of Rare Diseases. Circulation 2012;125-1591-3.[]

  • Disorder of Amino Acid Metabolism

    Long-term outcomes in various organic acidemias include cardiomyopathy, neurologic deficits, pancreatitis, or renal failure.[] Infants are usually normal until 3-6 months of age when they start developing progressive macrocephaly, hypotonia and developmental delay.[] Alternatively there may be abnormalities affecting other organ systems, such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, liver disease, or dysmorphic features.[]
