1,254 Possible Causes for EMG Shows Evidence of Reinnervation, Muscle Biopsy Abnormal, Tongue Paralysis

  • 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] It often begins on one side of the body, and ultimately leads to paralysis.[theaftd.org]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Only about 10% of ALS patients have abnormal nerve conduction study results, but the test can also suggest other diagnoses. A muscle biopsy.[webmd.com]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    Muscle biopsies showed typical signs of neurogenic damage. Molecular genetic analysis showed mutations of the ASAH1 gene.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Recurrent respiratory infections: Tongue fasciculation and ineffective swallowing may predispose patients to frequently aspirate their food.[symptoma.com] In some situations other tests such as an EMG electromyography (EMG) or muscle biopsy may be needed because it is not possible to conduct the SMN gene tests or no abnormality[genome.gov]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    The respiratory distress is due to diaphragmatic paralysis (diaphragmatic hernia observed on chest X-ray).[genedx.com] As the disease progresses, autonomic dysfunction and tongue twitching develop, and deep tendon reflexes are absent.[genedx.com]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    This condition is typically characterized by large and abnormally distributed mitochondria on muscle biopsy, which can distinguish this condition from the other muscle conditions[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Under the microscope, the muscle of a positive biopsy generally shows dead tissue and abnormally large muscle fibers.[cedars-sinai.edu] Muscle biopsies from subjects 1 and 3 were severely dystrophic with abnormal immunofluorescence and western blotting indicative of α-dystroglycan hypoglycosylation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
