  • Respiratory Muscle Paralysis

    Cardiac involvement is also frequent in myotonic dystrophy ( 5 ). Changes in circulation could be added factor in emergence in all forms of hypoventilation.[shortnessofbreath.it] Foodborne botulism is characterized by descending, flaccid paralysis that can cause respiratory failure.[who.int] Abstract A 34-year-old lady presented with generalised weakness of body, indistinguishable from myasthenia gravis within 24 hours of a wasp sting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Normokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    Three genetically different groups of myotonic disease can be discerned: (1) the chloride channel myotonias, (2) the adynamiaparamyotonia complex, and (3) myotonic dystrophy[jamanetwork.com] We identified the Met1592Val mutation of SCN4A in an affected descendent of this original normoKPP family.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Because of this progress, we are now recognizing new neuromuscular di seases as well as diagnosing more subtle cases of myasthenia gravis, myotonia, and metabolic myopathies[books.google.com]
