42 Possible Causes for Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Limb Weakness, Pseudohypertrophy of Calf Muscles

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Abstract Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy is an autosomal-dominant, slowly progressive myopathy that involves facial, shoulder, and upper arm muscles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The symptoms of FSH dystrophy may appear during childhood with severe facial and limb weakness or develop slowly and gradually in adulthood with progressive difficulty closing[kennedykrieger.org] Pseudohypertrophy of the calf muscles is due to fibrous tissue and fat infiltration. Involvement of the heart consists of usually terminal cardiomyopathy.[icd9data.com]

  • 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] As the disease progresses patients may notice limb weakness starting in the pelvis or shoulders, or weakness of the facial and tongue muscles.[cedars-sinai.edu] weakness, hypotonia Bulbar palsy Late Microcephaly Oculomotor defects: strabismus, nystagmus, oculomotor apraxia Cognitive defects Life expectancy 1 year Diagnostics Genetic[amboss.com]

  • 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] As the disease progresses patients may notice limb weakness starting in the pelvis or shoulders, or weakness of the facial and tongue muscles.[cedars-sinai.edu] There is a clinical variant of SMA, known as autosomal-dominant spinal muscular atrophy characterized by a predominantly lower limb weakness and muscle wasting.[symptoma.com]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    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] weakness that resembled muscular dystrophy, but the muscle biopsy and EMG indicated neuronal disease.[jkna.org] As the disease progresses patients may notice limb weakness starting in the pelvis or shoulders, or weakness of the facial and tongue muscles.[cedars-sinai.edu]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2E

    There is often asymmetric quadriceps, hamstring, biceps, brachioradialis, or calf weakness and atrophy. Muscle pain is common.[emedicine.medscape.com] Symptoms - Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy- type 2E Weakness Toe walking Muscle pain Muscle cramps Shoulder girdle muscle weakness Causes - Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy-[checkorphan.org] […] recessive inheritance 0000007 Calf muscle pseudohypertrophy 0003707 Juvenile onset Signs and symptoms begin before 15 years of age 0003621 Limb-girdle muscle weakness 0003325[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

  • Sarcotubular Myopathy

    There is often asymmetric quadriceps, hamstring, biceps, brachioradialis, or calf weakness and atrophy. Muscle pain is common.[emedicine.medscape.com] Here we describe a three generation Swedish family clinically presenting with limb girdle muscular weakness and histological features of a microvacuolar myopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abnormality of limbs Calf muscle pseudohypertrophy Quadriceps muscle weakness Abnormality of metabolism/homeostasis CREATINE PHOSPHOKINASE INCREASED Abnormality of the musculature[familydiagnosis.com]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2B

    Specifically, LGMD2B is a slowly progressive disease that causes muscle weakness and wasting ( atrophy ) of the pelvic muscles and muscles of the shoulder girdle. 0003236[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] A 25-year-old woman was admitted to our department as the limb weakness progressively worsened.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The aetiology of pain may be inflammatory or metabolic, and is thought to be related to hypertrophy or pseudohypertrophy of the calf muscles.[ped-rheum.biomedcentral.com]

  • Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy

    Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy is an autosomal-dominant, slowly progressive myopathy that involves facial, shoulder, and upper arm muscles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] FSHD presentation with foot drop or lower limb proximal weakness appeared to be more frequent than expected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pseudohypertrophy of the calf muscles is due to fibrous tissue and fat infiltration. Involvement of the heart consists of usually terminal cardiomyopathy.[icd9data.com]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1E

    There is often asymmetric quadriceps, hamstring, biceps, brachioradialis, or calf weakness and atrophy. Muscle pain is common.[emedicine.medscape.com] LGMD1D is characterized predominantly by limb-girdle weakness and may also show a bulbar symptom in some cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] License: Public Domain On examination, you may find pseudohypertrophy of gastrocnemius (calf) muscles. Examine the mental state of the child as retardation is common.[lecturio.com]

  • Muscular Dystrophy-Dystroglycanopathy Type C14

    Specifically, LGMD2B is a slowly progressive disease that causes muscle weakness and wasting ( atrophy ) of the pelvic muscles and muscles of the shoulder girdle. 0003236[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] […] muscle weakness Lower extremity weakness Lower limb weakness Muscle weakness in lower limbs [ more ] 0007340 Muscular dystrophy 0003560 Pectoralis amyotrophy Wasting of pec[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] License: Public Domain On examination, you may find pseudohypertrophy of gastrocnemius (calf) muscles.
