3,696 Possible Causes for EMG Shows Neurogenic Abnormalities, Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Scoliosis

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    Scoliosis occurs as a child with type 2 grows and gets bigger. There is no specific life span.[stopsma.org] 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]

  • Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Oftentimes scoliosis is present in patients with Type 3 or Type 4 SMA.[sinicropispine.com] 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] Overview the development of scoliosis is almost universal usually occurs by age 2 to 3 years often progressive Treatment nonoperative bracing indications devices may delay[orthobullets.com]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 4

    Progressive wasting (atrophy) of muscles can lead to the following: Atrophy in trunk muscles can lead to skeletal deformities (e.g. scoliosis) Atrophy in breathing muscles[smatrust.org] 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] Physical therapy, braces, and special appliances can benefit patients with static or slowly progressive disease by preventing scoliosis and contractures.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2

    Age 6 scoliosis progressed to 78 degrees and PSF with the unit rod was performed.[gait.aidi.udel.edu] 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] Kids with SMA can develop scoliosis (a curved spine) if the back muscles are weak.[kidshealth.org]
