63 Possible Causes for Elbow Dimples, Flexion Contracture

  • Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    Pterygia (these are winglike triangular membranes occurring typically in the neck, knees, elbows, ankles or fingers).[patient.info] In our series, positive prognostic factors for independent or community walkers were active hips and knees, hip flexion contracture less than 20 and knee flexion contracture[doi.org] flexion contracture may also influence ambulation.[ijoonline.com]

  • Eosinophilic Fasciitis

    In patients with insidious onset or without treatment, skin changes can evolve from edema to induration and peau d' orange dimpling.[medpagetoday.com] The disease may cause flexion contractures and limit joint mobility and is associated with peripheral eosinophilia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Arthritis was observed in 21 patients; 29 patients had flexion contractures and 12 had carpal tunnel syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arthrogryposis Syndrome

    Pterygia (these are winglike triangular membranes occurring typically in the neck, knees, elbows, ankles or fingers).[patient.info] We now report on the phenotypic features of a novel DA disorder characterized primarily by plantar flexion contractures in a large five-generation Utah family.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other positive prognostic factors for independent walking were active hips and knees, hip flexion contractures of less than 20 degrees and knee flexion contractures less than[checkorphan.org]

  • Autosomal-Recessive Non-Lethal Multiple Pterygium Syndrome

    Pterygia (these are winglike triangular membranes occurring typically in the neck, knees, elbows, ankles or fingers).[patient.info] Pre-operative examination revealed multiple joint flexion contractures.[ijaweb.org] contractures giving rise to severe arthrogryposis.[orpha.net]

  • Arthrogryposis due to Muscular Dystrophy

    Pterygia (these are winglike triangular membranes occurring typically in the neck, knees, elbows, ankles or fingers).[patient.info] Knee deformities  Knee contractures:  Observed in up to 85% of Arthrogryposis patients.  Include flexion and extension contractures.  Flexion Contractures ( 50%)  Mild[slideshare.net] Other positive prognostic factors for independent walking were active hips and knees, hip flexion contractures of less than 20 degrees and knee flexion contractures less than[monsterologist.blogspot.com]

  • Hemimelia

    Figure 1 b: dorsal view of the same showing some amount of elbow hypoplasia clinically by lack of dimpling and flexion at the cubital fossa region, extremely short forearm[ijpoonline.com] contracture and persistent ligamentous instability.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The right knee flexion contracture improved with a brace; however, the left knee remained with flexion deformity of 60 .[healio.com]

  • Melorheostosis

    However at the age of 5 weeks her mother noticed dimpling of the skin on her right thigh.[doi.org] We present a case of an 8-year-old boy diagnosed with melorheostosis who was suffering from severe genu valgum, permanent dislocation of the patella, knee flexion contracture[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Age Typically presents as a painless contracture before age 6 Gender Presentation Flexion contracures are common.[orthopaedicsone.com]

  • Popliteal Pterygium Syndrome

    There was marked dimpling over the elbows and knees.[docslide.com.br] The main orthopedic problem is a severe flexion contracture of the knee and an equinus foot. Surgical treatment consists of resection of the web.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient had achieved full-knee extension from a preoperative 45-degree flexion contracture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Humero-Radial Synostosis

    It was fixed in extension at a dimple, which represented the ‘elbow’ (Figures 1 and 2) ( Figure 2.[annsaudimed.net] There is usually full or nearly full elbow range of motion, with flexion contractures rarely exceeding 30 degree.[medigoo.com] contracture Hypoplastic ilia Hypoplastic iliac wing Mesomelia Dislocated radial head 2-3 toe syndactyly Narrow palpebral fissure Redundant skin Congenital hip dislocation[mendelian.co]
