3,432 Possible Causes for Creatine Kinase Normal or Increased, Ptosis Is Usually Presenting Feature, Vacuolization

  • Oculo-Pharyngo-Distal Myopathy

    Muscular dystrophy changes with rimmed vacuoles were the main histopathological changes.[] Clinical Features Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy has a late onset; it usually presents in the fourth to sixth decade with ptosis and/or dysphagia.[] Myopathological findings showed rimmed vacuoles with varying degrees of muscular dystrophic changes.[]

  • Distal Myopathy Type 3

    Tubulofilamentous inclusion, myeloid bodies, and autophagic vacuoles in the area corresponding to rimmed vacuoles ( d ; bar 1 μm).[] Serum creatine kinase concentration is usually normal but is sometimes increased by up to 3-fold.[] Table 2 Differential diagnosis of distal myopathies CREATINE KINASE The serum creatine kinase concentration may be helpful if it is increased but it may be normal or only[]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    The coexistence of ring fibres, rimmed vacuoles and inclusion-body myositis-type inclusions in a child with congenital myopathy has not been previously reported.[] Labs including CBC, CMP, ANA, ESR, CRP, and TSH were normal. Serum creatine kinase was 6,500.[] Abstract OBJECTIVE: Sporadic inclusion body myositis (sIBM) pathogenesis is unknown; however, rimmed vacuoles (RVs) are a constant feature.[]

  • Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy

    In contrast, patients with distal myopathy with rimmed vacuoles revealed many rimmed vacuoles, on average in 20% of the fibers, and their oculopharyngeal muscles were spared[] Early signs include ptosis, limb weakness and dysphagia. Symptoms usually begin after the age of 45 years, and ptosis is the most common presenting feature.[] Innervated cultures had large cytoplasmic vacuoles in a number of muscle fibers.[]

  • Sarcotubular Myopathy

    The vacuoles are similar to those described in sarcotubular myopathy. TRIM32 sequencing revealed the common c.1459G A mutation at homozygosity.[] Asymptomatic individuals may also present with a high creatine kinase (CK) level or malignant hyperthermia.[] Myriad small spaces appeared in abnormal fibers in the transverse sections, while in longitudinal sections the vacuolation was segmental in distribution.[]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1E

    Pathologic findings in one of the patients showed rimmed vacuoles.[] kinase normal-to-moderate increase Genetic testing gold standard Slit-lamp examination to evaluate for cataracts classically posterior subcapsular cataracts Electrocardiogram[] Muscle biopsy shows dystrophic changes with abnormal nuclei, rimmed vacuoles, and filamentous inclusions. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23667635}.[]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    At juvenile onset, a more moderate vacuolization without significant differences in overall morphology is notable.[] Laboratory results are significant for an elevated creatine kinase level of 1,423 U/L (normal 200 U/L). There was no increase of lactate on forearm nonischemic testing.[] Creatine kinase levels are often elevated and in young patients, it is not uncommon to measure increased serum concentrations of hepatic enzymes.[]

  • Mitochondrial Neurogastrointestinal Encephalomyopathy

    Several regenerating fibers and some vacuolated fibers were also seen. B , Modified Gomori trichrome stain revealing abundant ragged red fibers and lipid droplets.[] Ptosis is commonly present as well. Systemic Features: This condition has been called a mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalopathy (MNGIE).[] Laboratory analysis showed increased serum creatine kinase (maximum levels, 540 UI/L; reference, Complementary studies.[]
