3,868 Possible Causes for EMG Shows Evidence of Reinnervation, Eosinophils Increased, Muscle Biopsy Abnormal

  • Eosinophilic Fasciitis

    MRI of femur demonstrated oedema and abnormal enhancement along all of the fascial planes surrounding the pelvic and thigh muscles.[imj.ie] […] of macrophages, CD8 lymphocytes, and few eosinophils. [9] Pathologic specimens from patients with eosinophilic fasciitis demonstrate increased numbers of eosinophils, especially[emedicine.com] Currently, eosinophilic fasciitis can be diagnosed definitively only by full-thickness epidermis-to-muscle biopsy.[doi.org]

  • Eosinophilia Myalgia Syndrome

    Of 4 chest radiographs, 3 were abnormal. Of 5 skin and muscle biopsies, 4 showed sclerosis or mixed inflammatory cell infiltration of the dermis, subcutis, and fascia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hypodense eosinophils are activated cells with increased survival and an increased capacity for cytotoxicity, and their release of inflammatory mediators, such as leukotrienes[emedicine.com] This report presents 2 EMS patients with myopathy, confirmed by muscle biopsy in 1 case and electrophysiology in both cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stiff-Person Syndrome

    Previous diagnostic testing, including magnetic resonance imaging, muscle biopsy, and electromyography, showed no specific abnormalities and blood was negative for anti-GAD[redorbit.com] Trials of several muscle relaxant medications and intravenous immunoglobulin did not provide any significant relief.[redorbit.com]

  • Trichinellosis

    The disease is usually characterized by moderate to high eosinophilia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] METHODS: Three index cases presenting as acute febrile myalgia syndrome with eosinophilia, after consumption of uncooked pork in a common feast, were confirmed as trichinellosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] High levels of creatinine kinase (69.3%) and lactate dehydrogenase (93.8%) with leucocytosis ( 10 000/mm(3), 58.9%) and eosinophilia ( 1000/mm(3), 60.5%) were the most prominent[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tropical Myositis

    The serum creatine kinase (CK) level was high (1370 U/L; RR, A biopsy of the quadriceps showed the muscle to be pale, flaccid and atrophic.[mja.com.au] In cysticercosis and trichinosis, eosinophilia is present.[pmj.bmj.com] Other findings may be anemia and eosinophilia. • The second is the "suppurative stage". Usually this phase is between 10 and 21 days after the onset of symptoms.[clinmedjournals.org]

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    Microscopic and laboratory examination of muscle tissue samples (biopsy) from affected individuals does not usually reveal any muscle abnormality.[rarediseases.org] Muscle biopsy is recommended in patients with inflammatory myositis. How is PMR treated? Glucocorticoids are the mainstay of therapy for patients diagnosed with PMR.[news-medical.net] […] diagnosis of polymyalgia rheumatica may be confirmed by a thorough clinical examination including a detailed patient history and specialized blood testing that demonstrates an abnormally[rarediseases.org]

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease Type 1

    Magnetic resonance imaging showed abnormal intensity, and a muscle biopsy revealed inflammatory cell infiltration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Marjorie M Walker, Kavita R Aggarwal, Lisa SE Shim, Milan Bassan, Jamshid S Kalantar, Martin D Weltman, Michael Jones, Nicholas Powell and Nicholas J Talley, Duodenal eosinophilia[dx.doi.org]

  • Pyomyositis

    Children were more likely to present with eosinophilia than adults (OR 4.20, 95% CI 1.08-16.32, p 0.048), but no other significant differences regarding clinical presentation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Leukocytosis, increased levels of muscle enzymes, 1 C-reactive protein, 5 IgE and ESR; 1,4 and eosinophilia may occur.[scielo.br] In cysticercosis and trichinosis, eosinophilia is present.[pmj.bmjjournals.com]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    For patients with MND affecting the LMNs, the EMG will show evidence of: (1) acute denervation, which is ongoing as motor neurons degenerate, and (2) chronic denervation and[en.wikipedia.org] The results of electromyography and muscle biopsy were compatible with ALS. However, supranuclear vertical gaze palsy and slow saccades are seen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] reinnervation of the muscle, as the remaining motor neurons attempt to fill in for lost motor neurons.[en.wikipedia.org]
