57 Possible Causes for Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Fasciculation of the Tongue, Muscular Atrophy

  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

    […] term(s): Adult form spinal muscular atrophy Childhood form, type II spinal muscular atrophy Distal spinal muscular atrophy Juvenile form, type III spinal muscular atrophy[icd10coded.com] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[secure.ssa.gov] Clinical manifestations include dysarthria, dysphagia, facial weakness, tongue weakness, and fasciculations of the tongue and facial muscles.[icd9data.com]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    The name "spinal muscular atrophy" is ambiguous as it refers to any of various spinal muscular atrophies, including the autosomal recessive spinal muscular atrophy caused[en.wikipedia.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] Slight weakness in the facial muscles and fasciculation of the tongue appeared at age 60. At age 61, she died of sudden respiratory arrest.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Some MNDs, such as ALS and some forms of spinal muscular atrophy, are fatal.[ninds.nih.gov] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org] Neither atrophy nor fasciculation of the tongue was observed. Both cases showed rapid progression to mutism within a few years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    atrophy type 1 with paradoxical breathing were placed on high-span PIP PEEP when sleeping from the point of diagnosis of spinal muscular atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] Additional findings include atrophy and fasciculations of the tongue, gastrointestinal problems (gastroesophageal reflux, constipation, and delayed gastric emptying) bulbar[symptoma.com]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Spinal muscular atrophies (SMAs) are neurodegenerative disorders caused by mutations in the survival motor neuron 1 (SMN1) gene.[symptoma.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] They will see if the muscles are floppy or flaccid, to check for deep tendon reflexes and muscle fasciculation of the tongue muscle.[medicalnewstoday.com]
