443 Possible Causes for Distal Joint Contractures

  • Muscular Dystrophy-Dystroglycanopathy Type C3

    Scoliosis and joint contractures are more common with earlier disease onset.[now.aapmr.org] Joint contractures and calf hypertrophy may be present.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] of distal and proximal interphalangeal joints Rigid Spine Cardiomyopathy Specific secondary or associated conditions and complications Early onset disorders may result in[now.aapmr.org]

  • Polyneuropathy

    He had no antigravity movements in the legs, bilateral wrist drop, distal joint contractures and absent deep tendon reflexes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electromyography showed neurogenic changes, with nerve conduction velocities markedly reduced, increased distal motor latency and dispersed compound muscle action potentials[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    Distal Arthrogryposis Type II : Heterogenous group. Congenital distal joint contractures are associated with numerous other anomalies.[accessanesthesiology.mhmedical.com] distal joint flexion contractures, obvious fasiculations of the tongue during sleep and activity, paradoxical respiratory movements, and mild spinal scoliosis.[cags.org.ae] Joint contractures are present. Distal joints are affected more frequently than proximal joints. The range of motion in the jaw is frequently limited.[boneandspine.com]

  • Arthrogryposis Syndrome

    distal joint flexion contractures, obvious fasiculations of the tongue during sleep and activity, paradoxical respiratory movements, and mild spinal scoliosis.[cags.org.ae] contractures, and no viceral abnormalities; - distal joints are usually affected more severely; - classic arthrogrypotic deformities are present at birth; - note that it[wheelessonline.com] Other abnormalities seen in type 2 distal arthrogryposis include a small tongue, short stature, a curvature of the spine, more serious joint contractures, and mental delays[encyclopedia.com]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    UCMD is well defined by the clinicopathological hallmarks including distal hyperlaxity, proximal joint contractures, protruding calcanei, scoliosis and respiratory insufficiency[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] contractures and coexisting distal joint hyperlaxity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Ullrich congential muscular dystrophy (UCMD) is a severe form of congenital muscular dystrophy manifesting axial muscle contractures and distal joint hyperlaxity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arthrogryposis due to Muscular Dystrophy

    Overview In this article, the author discusses Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy (UCMD), a collagen VI–related myopathy, which is characterized by proximal joint contractures[medlink.com] Joint contractures are present. Distal joints are affected more frequently than proximal joints. The range of motion in the jaw is frequently limited.[boneandspine.com] 2B, is a disorder characterized by joint deformities (contractures) that restrict movement in the hands and feet.[icdlist.com]

  • Ichthyosis Vulgaris

    During this visit, she received physical therapy to help with managing pain, minimizing joint contractures, maximizing PIP and DIP flexion and extension motions, and increasing[academic.oup.com] The patient demonstrated improved swelling distal to site of constriction band and diminished throbbing and discomfort.[academic.oup.com]

  • Medial Sclerosis

    Musculoskeletal examination may reveal swelling, deformities, bony overgrowth (referred to as Heberden's nodes when involving the distal interphalangeal joints and Bouchard's[aafp.org] Muscle spasm, and tendon and capsular contractures also may be observed, depending on the site and duration of involvement. FIGURE 1.[aafp.org]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy with Respiratory Distress Type 1

    Within months a more distal muscular atrophy became evident associated with joint contractures (talipes), hand drops, and fatty finger pads.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Kyphosis/scoliosis, foot deformities and joint contractures are frequently associated features.[orpha.net] ORPHA:98920 Synonym(s): Autosomal recessive distal spinal muscular atrophy type 1 Autosomal recessive spinal muscular atrophy with respiratory distress Diaphragmatic spinal[orpha.net]
