81 Possible Causes for Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Foot Drop, Muscular Atrophy

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Abstract Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) and progressive muscular atrophy (PMA) are associated with IgM monoclonal gammopathy or the presence IgM anti-GM1-antibodies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In the first patient the symptoms were slowly progressive with bulbar muscle impairment, generalized weakness, muscular atrophy with cramps and fasciculations.[moh-it.pure.elsevier.com] Clinically, it is characterized by slowly progressive asymmetrical predominantly distal weakness; unilateral wrist drop, grip weakness, and foot drop are the commonest initial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    This usually begins on one side of the body and can cause loss of hand dexterity, shoulder function, a foot-drop or walking difficulty.[alsbc.ca] The patients were a 54-year-old man with progressive muscular atrophy who underwent removal of internal fixators in the arm and leg, and a 66-year-old woman with amyotrophic[ncbi.nlm.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]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Distal muscular dystrophies are a group of inherited primary muscle disorders showing progressive weakness and atrophy preferentially in the hands, forearm, lower legs, or[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy is an autosomal-dominant, slowly progressive myopathy that involves facial, shoulder, and upper arm muscles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] drop (foot dorsiflexion weakness); Weak lower abdominal muscles, “pregnant” belly; Loss of chest (pectoral) muscles; Curved spine (lordosis).[fshsociety.org]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    drop, or slurred speech.[alsnewstoday.com] 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]

  • 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] Adult onset MND usually starts insidiously with symptoms and signs including stumbling, foot drop, weakened grip, slurred speech, cramp, muscle wasting, twitching and tiredness[nice.org.uk]

  • Young Adult-Onset Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy

    Foot drop (steppage) pattern may progress to waddling gait in more advanced disease.[now.aapmr.org] Treatment for spinal muscular atrophy Unfortunately, there is currently no specific treatment for SMA.[betterhealth.vic.gov.au] weakness DHMN8 600175 TRPV4 12q24.11 Autosomal dominant Congenital distal spinal muscular atrophy Affects primarily distal muscles of lower limbs, non-progressive, rare DHMNJ[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy Type 1

    The supportive treatment for HNPP can include transient bracing (e.g., a wrist splint or ankle-foot orthosis) which may become permanent in some cases of foot drop.[bcbst.com] muscular atrophy, but have different genetic causes.[togetherinsma.com] weakness DHMN8 600175 TRPV4 12q24.11 Autosomal dominant Congenital distal spinal muscular atrophy Affects primarily distal muscles of lower limbs, non-progressive, rare DHMNJ[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Inherited Neuropathy

    We describe a young woman who presented with postpartum foot drop diagnosed as an iatrogenic L5 root lesion after uncomplicated epidural anesthesia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Neurol Clin. 2015; 33(4):831-46.[invitae.com] The supportive treatment for HNPP can include transient bracing (e.g., a wrist splint or ankle-foot orthosis) which may become permanent in some cases of foot drop.[bcbst.com]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    atrophy(PMA), Progressive bulbar palsy(PBP), MEPs were recorded from abductor pollicis brevis and abductor hallucis.[e-acn.org] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (muscles that are involved in swallowing), weak facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[advancedpsy.com] She has now developed right thigh weakness and a left sided foot drop.[brainscape.com]

  • 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] However, occasionally problems in the leg or legs may occur: Foot drop (early). Gait disorder. A sensation of heaviness of one or both legs. A tendency to trip.[patient.info]
