137 Possible Causes for EMG Shows Neurogenic Abnormalities, Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Late Diaphragmatic Involvement

  • Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Spinal muscular atrophy is characterised by slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy of the limb muscles associated with motor neurone loss in the spinal cord.[patient.info] Bulbar muscular atrophy affects the bulbar and facial muscles with motor neurone loss in the brainstem. [ 1 ] The spinal muscular atrophies (SMAs) are a spectrum of genetically[patient.info] They all result in progressive lower motor neurone weakness. The gene defect is on chromosome 5q and the implicated gene is called survival motor neurone gene 1 (SMN1).[patient.info]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    We present a baby with spinal muscular atrophy type 1, an inherited disorder causing progressive weakness, leading to complete paralysis of respiratory, facial and limb muscles[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Spinal muscular atrophy is characterised by slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy of the limb muscles associated with motor neurone loss in the spinal cord.[patient.info] Bulbar muscular atrophy affects the bulbar and facial muscles with motor neurone loss in the brainstem. [ 1 ] The spinal muscular atrophies (SMAs) are a spectrum of genetically[patient.info]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 4

    Spinal muscular atrophy is characterised by slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy of the limb muscles associated with motor neurone loss in the spinal cord.[patient.info] Scapuloperoneal spinal muscular atrophy: Type 1 (AD form) appears at age 14-26, with weakness, distal leg atrophy, and absent tendon reflexes and sparing of intrinsic foot[emedicine.medscape.com] Bulbar muscular atrophy affects the bulbar and facial muscles with motor neurone loss in the brainstem. [ 1 ] The spinal muscular atrophies (SMAs) are a spectrum of genetically[patient.info]

  • Fingerprint Body Myopathy

    The EMG shows firing of motor units, reflecting an origin from spontaneous neural discharge.[basicmedicalkey.com] Within few years the disease progressed to generalized muscle weakness and atrophy, ptosis, ophthalmoplegia externa and areflexia.[scipers.com] Respiratory failure and diaphragmatic weakness are often initial manifestations, heralding progressive proximal muscle weakness. The heart and liver are not involved.[basicmedicalkey.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    EMG change were at an earlier stage of evolution than those showing severe weakness and marked neurogenic EMG change.[doi.org] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org] ) Males symptomatic; slowly progressive bulbar and limb weakness Family history; fasciculations of facial muscles; gynaecomastia; proximal symmetrical weakness in addition[doi.org]

  • X-Linked Scapuloperoneal Myopathy

    The EMG shows firing of motor units, reflecting an origin from spontaneous neural discharge.[basicmedicalkey.com] Signs: there is ptosis, facial weakness, atrophy of the sternocieidomastoid muscles, cataracts, and decreased intelligence.[academic.sun.ac.za] . 18 Later, distal leg weakness with atrophy of the peroneal muscles is noted; mild facial weakness may be also be observed.[obgynkey.com]
