103 Possible Causes for Extensor Finger Muscle Weakness

  • Slow-Channel Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome

    The clinical features include ptosis, ophthalmoparesis, and weakness of the cervical and finger extensor muscles as well as marked phenotypic heterogeneity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The phenotype is characterized by dominant inheritance; selective weakness of cervical, scapular, and finger extensors and other distal muscles; and mild ophthalmoparesis.[link.springer.com] Bilateral ptosis, ophthalmoplegia and weakness of the finger and wrist extensors and cervical muscles have been present since childhood.[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Distal Myopathy Type Welander

    Clinical description WDM is a late adult-onset disorder (onset between 40 and 60 years) characterized by initial weakness of index finger extensors followed by extension weakness[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] […] index finger extensors followed by extension weakness in the other fingers.[malacards.org] Weakness slowly progresses to all small hand and lower leg muscles.[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

  • Distal Myopathy

    Some patients also had proximal weakness, but none had signs of finger or hand extensor muscle involvement, even in advanced stages of the disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Finger extensor and neck flexor weakness together with Achilles tendon retractions were other frequent findings.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Muscle weakness predominantly affected ankle dorsiflexors, finger extensors and neck flexors, a distribution different both from the patterns of weakness seen in NM caused[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myofibrillar Myopathy 4

    Patients present with ankle weakness followed by weakness of finger and wrist extensors and later on of proximal muscles. Ambulation is usually preserved.[orpha.net] weakness with initial involvement of posterior lower leg muscles, medial gastrocnemius and soleus.[orpha.net] […] distal myopathy, Markesbery-Griggs type is a rare, genetic, non-dystrophic myofibrillar myopathy disorder characterized by late-adult onset of distal and/or proximal limb muscle[orpha.net]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    Finger flexor muscles were severely weak in 3 of 5 patients, a feature that could lead to a misdiagnosis of inclusion body myositis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: Predominant weakness and atrophy of biceps brachii, hip adduction, and quadriceps muscles was noted along with calf and extensor forearm hypertrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
