227 Possible Causes for EMG Shows Neurogenic Abnormalities, Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Respiratory Vital Capacity Decreased

  • 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]

  • Spinal and Bulbar Muscular Atrophy

    Abstract Spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy (SBMA) is the first member identified among polyglutamine diseases characterized by slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Predicted values of peak expiratory flow (%PEF) and forced vital capacity were decreased in subjects with SBMA compared with controls.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The main symptoms are slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy of bulbar, facial and limb muscles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]

  • Oculo-Pharyngo-Distal Myopathy

    The EMG shows firing of motor units, reflecting an origin from spontaneous neural discharge.[clinicalgate.com] Investigation of respiratory function revealed normal volumes, decreased inspiratory flow (58% of inspiratory vital capacity instead of 91%) and decreased respiratory mouth[jnnp.bmj.com] Cramps are abrupt in onset, short in duration, and may cause abnormal posturing of the joint.[clinicalgate.com]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1F

    Specifically, LGMD2B is a slowly progressive disease that causes muscle weakness and wasting ( atrophy ) of the pelvic muscles and muscles of the shoulder girdle. 0003236[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] […] facial muscle tone Low facial muscle tone Reduced facial muscle tone [ more ] 0000297 Reduced maximal inspiratory pressure 0012496 Reduced vital capacity 0002792 Respiratory[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] These diseases affect the voluntary muscles, which are the muscles that are moved on purpose, such as the arms, legs, fingers, toes, and facial muscles.[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]
