22 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy May Develop Later in the Disease

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Some women carrying the DMD gene may develop heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy) or an abnormal heart rhythm.[patient.info] At an advanced stage of the disease, patients with LGMD2I may develop cardiomyopathy with severe systolic dysfunction and extensive scarring of the lateral walls (arrowheads[doi.org] If this happens, it is usually milder and starts at a later age, compared to boys with DMD. At present, there is a debate about how likely this problem actually is.[patient.info]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Some women carrying the DMD gene may develop heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy) or an abnormal heart rhythm.[patient.info] At an advanced stage of the disease, patients with LGMD2I may develop cardiomyopathy with severe systolic dysfunction and extensive scarring of the lateral walls (arrowheads[doi.org] If this happens, it is usually milder and starts at a later age, compared to boys with DMD. At present, there is a debate about how likely this problem actually is.[patient.info]

  • Eosinophilic Endomyocardial Disease

    If diagnosed early, treatment with steroids and cytotoxic medications can be beneficial; however, if diagnosed later in the disease processes, once fibrotic disease develops[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] restrictive cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , surgical intervention may be required to prevent morbidity and mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    At an advanced stage of the disease, patients with LGMD2I may develop cardiomyopathy with severe systolic dysfunction and extensive scarring of the lateral walls (arrowheads[doi.org]

  • Ataxia

    Cardiac involvement (typically hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) usually develops later in the disease course, but may rarely precede neurological manifestations.[orpha.net] Spasticity, seen later in the disease course, can lead to discomfort, pain, positioning problems and contractures in some.[orpha.net]

  • Danon Disease

    Women tend to get the disease later and develop hypertrophic or dilated cardiomyopathy more equally.[cardiomyopathy.org] Most also have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, but some may have dilated cardiomyopathy.[cardiomyopathy.org] People with the disease may suffer from heart failure and electrical problems.[cardiomyopathy.org]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 3

    Later in life, muscle weakness and cardiomyopathy (heart muscle weakness) may develop.[nxgenmdx.com] Glycogen storage disease type 3 has no cure, but high-protein diets and physical therapy may alleviate some symptoms.[nxgenmdx.com]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    may develop milder symptoms in other organ systems. 99 Current diagnostics Reduced leukocyte α-gal A enzyme levels will be found in hemizygotes.[dx.doi.org] […] age than hemizygous men. 96 – 98 There is a “cardiac variant” of attenuated Fabry disease with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy as the predominant symptom, although these patients[dx.doi.org] […] failure, strokes, and cardiac events. 94 – 95 Heterozygous females, previously thought to be asymptomatic “carriers,” can have significant symptomatology, generally at a later[dx.doi.org]

  • Long Chain Hydroxyacyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency

    Peripheral neuromyopathy, and pigmentary retinopathy may develop at a later age.[genedx.com] Additional presentations are cardiomyopathy and cardiac conduction defects, severe liver disease, recurrent muscle cramps, seizures, coma or sudden death (SIDS).[genedx.com]

  • Mitochondrial Trifunctional Protein Deficiency

    Peripheral neuromyopathy, and pigmentary retinopathy may develop at a later age.[genedx.com] Additional presentations are cardiomyopathy and cardiac conduction defects, severe liver disease, recurrent muscle cramps, seizures, coma or sudden death (SIDS).[genedx.com]
