1,050 Possible Causes for Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Flaccid Paralysis, Grip Strength Decreased

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Prior animal studies have shown that silencing SOD1 led to preservation of grip strength and a delay in the onset of motor function deficits [ 125, 126 ].[doi.org] In cranial nerves, common symptoms are atrophy of facial muscles and progressive bulbar palsy (PBP).[flexikon.doccheck.com] A characteristic finding is albuminocytological dissociation in the cerebrospinal fluid, and the clinical presentation is typically an ascending flaccid paralysis with loss[doi.org]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org] Progressive bulbar palsy, also called progressive bulbar atrophy, involves the brain stem—the bulb-shaped region containing lower motor neurons needed for swallowing, speaking[web.archive.org] Limb weakness with both lower and upper motor neuron signs is almost always evident but less prominent.[web.archive.org]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuropathy

    […] three cases of osteoarticular infection manifested by flaccid limb paralysis without the typical systemic signs of infection.[revistas.rcaap.pt] Brachial neuritis usually is characterized by the acute onset of excruciating unilateral shoulder pain, followed by flaccid paralysis of shoulder and parascapular muscles[emedicine.medscape.com] On the other hand, pseudo-paralysis or apparent weakness of a limb associated with septic arthritis or osteomyelitis is a well-documented phenomenon Case Report: We describe[revistas.rcaap.pt]

  • Adult Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    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] The examination may show all the characteristic findings of a lower motor neuron disease, namely absent/decreased reflexes, hypotonia, flaccid paralysis and muscle fasciculations[symptoma.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]
