17 Possible Causes for Disorder of Digit, Narrow Hands, Quadriceps Muscle Weakness

  • Osteoarthritis

    […] photographs for the diagnosis of hand osteoarthritis: the AGES-Reykjavik study, BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, 13, 1, (2012).[] In the small joints of the hand (see the image below), radiographs often show narrowing of the entire joint.[] Muscle weakness, especially in the quadriceps, may be both a cause and an effect of OA of the knee ( Figure 2 ).[]

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    […] at night, signs of the disorder upon examination, and especially if the patient responds to a steroid shot.[] The carpal tunnel is a narrow, rigid passageway of ligament and bones at the base of the hand that houses the median nerve and the tendons that bend the fingers.[] The area in your wrist where the nerve enters the hand is called the carpal tunnel. This tunnel is normally narrow.[]

  • Median Neuropathy

    If it is more progressed, motor problems involving these digits can be affected. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common presentation or disorder of the median nerve.[] At the base of the hand is a narrow place between bones and ligament where the median nerve and tendons are found. This area is called the carpal tunnel.[] Difficulty in walking and climbing stairs is common, due to weakness of the quadriceps and iliopsoas muscles.[]

  • Joint Effusion

    Sacroiliac disorders can also cause buttock pain.[] As well as being a direct cause of quadriceps muscle weakness, AMI may prevent effective muscle strengthening [ 8 ],[ 9 ], leading to long-term quadriceps muscle atrophy and[] INTRODUCTION: Marked weakness of the quadriceps muscles is typically observed following injury, surgery or pathology affecting the knee joint.[]

  • Familial Visceral Myopathy

  • Oculo-Pharyngo-Distal Myopathy

    Congenital myasthenic syndromes are genetic disorders of the neuromuscular junction.[] […] palsy Exertional dyspnea Tics Generalized amyotrophy Cardiomyopathy Obstructive sleep apnea Scoliosis Prolonged miniature endplate currents Decreased size of nerve terminals Hand[] Finger flexor weakness b. Wrist flexor greater than wrist extensor weakness c. Quadriceps muscle weakness (equal to or less than MRC grade 4) B.[]

  • Acquired Wrist Drop

    Primary category: G (50-59 , nerve, nerve root, and plexus disorders) 2-digit category: 51 (facial nerve disorders) The primary code would be G51 .[] Here the median nerve which is responsible for feelings and movement in the hand is compressed as it passes through a narrowed carpal tunnel in the wrist.[] This usually affects the femoral nerve, with prominent weakness of the quadriceps muscle and loss of patellar reflex (termed diabetic amyotrophy).[]

  • Lower Motor Neuron Syndrome with Late-Adult Onset

    […] anomalies-intellectual disability-short stature syndrome Digital extensor muscle aplasia-polyneuropathy Dihydropteridine reductase deficiency Disorder of sex development-intellectual[] Narrowing may occur at one or more levels.[] This usually affects the femoral nerve, with prominent weakness of the quadriceps muscle and loss of patellar reflex (termed diabetic amyotrophy).[]

  • Mononeuritis Multiplex

    Interdigital neuromas are common and result from a pinching of the common digital nerves between metatarsal heads.[] Joint space narrowing and cortical bone erosions in the metacarpophalangeal joints of the hands were observed.[] This usually affects the femoral nerve, with prominent weakness of the quadriceps muscle and loss of patellar reflex (termed diabetic amyotrophy).[]

  • Absence or Deformity of Leg- Cataract Syndrome
