19 Possible Causes for Congenital Joint Contractures - Knee Ankle Hip Elbow

  • Connective Tissue Disease

    It is akin to Marfan syndrome but with contractures of hip, knee, elbows and ankle joint and crumpled ear.[en.wikipedia.org] Congenital contractural arachnodactyly – Also known as Beals syndrome.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Arthrogryposis due to Muscular Dystrophy

    Contractures (tightness) in the joints – the ankles, hips, knees and elbows – are also common. The contractures are sometimes severe and affect several joints.[mda.org.au] Babies with congenital muscular dystrophy often appear “floppy” (this may also be described by doctors as having low muscle tone or hypotonia).[mda.org.au]

  • Mixed Connective Tissue Disease

    It is akin to Marfan syndrome but with contractures of hip, knee, elbows and ankle joint and crumpled ear.[en.wikipedia.org] Congenital contractural arachnodactyly – Also known as Beals syndrome.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    Distribution Flexion: IP joints medial 4 fingers, wrists, elbows, ankles Proximal: Pectorals, Knees, Shoulders, Hips Truncal Congenital: Torticollis Disease progression:[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] Restrictive lung disease correlates with weakness & contractures Spine Dorsiflexion contractures at ankles in COL6A2 (G250S) mutation Course After birth: Often spontaneously[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] […] improve Joints: Some are initially hypermobile May develop contractures over time Childhood & Adult: May progress independent of weakness Some patients in families may never[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    Contractures (tightness) in the joints - the ankles, hips, knees and elbows - is also common. The contractures can sometimes be severe and affect several joints.[treat-nmd.eu] Babies with congenital muscular dystrophy often appear "floppy" (this may also be described by doctors as low muscle tone or hypotonia).[treat-nmd.eu]

  • Degenerative Disorder

    Myopathic EDS (mEDS) characterized by congenital muscle hypotonia, and/or muscle atrophy, that improves with age, Proximal joint contractures (joints of the knee, hip and[web.archive.org] elbow); and hypermobility of distal joints (joints of the ankles, wrists, feet and hands).[web.archive.org]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy Type 1D

    Contractures (tightness) in the joints - the ankles, hips, knees and elbows - is also common. The contractures can sometimes be severe and affect several joints.[treat-nmd.eu] Contractures (tightness) in the joints – the ankles, hips, knees and elbows – are also common. The contractures are sometimes severe and affect several joints.[mda.org.au] Babies with congenital muscular dystrophy often appear "floppy" (this may also be described by doctors as low muscle tone or hypotonia).[treat-nmd.eu]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy due to LMNA Mutation

    Contractures (tightness) in the joints – the ankles, hips, knees and elbows – are also common. The contractures are sometimes severe and affect several joints.[mda.org.au] Babies with congenital muscular dystrophy often appear “floppy” (this may also be described by doctors as having low muscle tone or hypotonia).[mda.org.au]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy Type 1C

    Contractures (tightness) in the joints – the ankles, hips, knees and elbows – are also common. The contractures are sometimes severe and affect several joints.[mda.org.au] Babies with congenital muscular dystrophy often appear “floppy” (this may also be described by doctors as having low muscle tone or hypotonia).[mda.org.au]

  • Freeman-Sheldon Syndrome

    The joints of the hands, wrists, feet, and ankles are most commonly involved although more proximal joints ( e.g ., elbow, shoulder, knee, and hip) also can be affected.[ojrd.biomedcentral.com] Limbs In an isolated case, the presence of congenital contractures is mandatory in order to entertain the diagnosis of SHS.[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]
