49 Possible Causes for Creatine Phosphokinase Increased, Electromyogram Abnormal, No Muscle Weakness

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    It causes progressive weakness in muscles of the face, arms, legs, and around the shoulders and chest.[ninds.nih.gov] The diagnosis of muscular dystrophy is based on the results of muscle biopsy, increased creatine phosphokinase (CpK3), electromyography, and genetic testing.[en.wikipedia.org] From Wikidata Jump to navigation Jump to search myopathy characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness degeneration edit English muscular dystrophy myopathy characterized[wikidata.org]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    High serum creatine kinase Increased CPK Increased creatine kinase Increased creatine phosphokinase Increased serum CK Increased serum creatine kinase Increased serum creatine[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] […] changes in the structure of the muscle cells Tests that stain the muscle sample can be used to visualize any muscle proteins present Electromyogram (EMG): Another diagnostic[dovemed.com] Later symptoms Muscle weakness: Affects the proximal muscles of the limbs mainly.[patient.info]

  • Secondary Myopathy

    Cirioni O, Weimer LE, Fragola V, et al.(2013) Sustained Increase of Serum Creatine Phosphokinase Levels and Progressive Muscle Abnormalities Associated with Raltegravir use[hiv.imedpub.com] Although changes seen on electromyography are not pathognomonic for any specific disease process, an abnormal electromyogram can indicate if a neuropathy or neuromuscular[aafp.org] electromyograms, evocative muscle biopsy and an abnormal signal on muscle magnetic resonance imaging.[err.ersjournals.com]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Muscle weakness Other names Myasthenia Specialty Neurology Muscle weakness is a lack of muscle strength.[en.wikipedia.org] Occasionally, however, females who carry a DMD gene mutation may have muscle weakness and cramping.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] Proximal muscle weakness affects muscles closest to the body's midline, while distal muscle weakness affects muscles further out on the limbs.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Polymyositis

    There was increased proximal muscle strength and reduction in the creatine phosphokinase level.[rheumatology.oxfordjournals.org] An electromyogram showed abnormal nerve conduction with evidence of active denervation of most of the muscles tested.[nature.com] Some cases of polymyositis have manifestations of muscle weakness in the orbital muscles. Rare cases also have weaknesses in facial and bulbar muscles.[symptoma.com]

  • Myopathy

    The laboratory evaluation was remarkable for the marked increase in the serum lactate dehydrogenase and creatine phosphokinase levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electroencephalographic abnormalities have been noted in several patients with the early-onset form of the disease before clinically apparent seizure activity begins.[anesthesiology.pubs.asahq.org] Muscle weakness regressed and dysphagia disappeared with treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dermatomyositis

    Elevated creatine phosphokinase increases the suspicion of an inflammatory muscle disease, and muscle biopsy is the definitive diagnostic tool for inflammatory myopathies.[rc.rcjournal.com] (EMG) which can demonstrate abnormal electrical activity in muscles and help distinguish weakness due to muscle disease from weakness due to nerve problems A nerve conduction[mda.org.au] Symptoms may include: Muscle weakness, stiffness, or soreness Problems swallowing Purple color to the upper eyelids Purple-red skin rash Shortness of breath The muscle weakness[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    She developed muscle weakness of the distal part of the left lower extremity at age 42, followed by muscle weakness and atrophy of the right lower extremity and upper extremities[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She developed muscle weakness in the distal part of the right upper extremity at age 52, followed by muscle weakness in the left upper extremity and lower extremities at age[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He had been aware of muscle weakness and received a diagnosis of SPMA 18 years previously.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    Inclusion body myositis is associated with a modest degree of creatine kinase (CK) elevation and an abnormal electromyogram demonstrating an irritative myopathy with some[pesquisa.bvsalud.org] We have identified several patients with sIBM in our cohort with muscle weakness of the flexors but not the quadriceps femoris.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] phosphokinase (CPK) and inflammatory cell infiltration.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    We present a 19-year-old girl with epilepsy and elevated creatine phosphokinase (CPK) concentration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, most patients in the current family showed distal as well as proximal limb weakness rather than weakness of toe and finger flexor muscles that were typical features[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition to proximal muscle weakness, there may or may not be: Distal muscle weakness. Muscle hypertrophy. Contractures.[patient.info]
