18 Possible Causes for Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Muscular Atrophy, Tongue Paralysis

  • 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] It often begins on one side of the body, and ultimately leads to paralysis.[theaftd.org]

  • 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] The respiratory distress is due to diaphragmatic paralysis (diaphragmatic hernia observed on chest X-ray).[genedx.com]

  • Fazio-Londe Disease

    Infantile oligopontocerebellar atrophy with spinal muscular atrophy. Clin Neuropathol. 1990 ; 9(1): 21 - 32.[doi.org] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[secure.ssa.gov] Paralysis occurs secondary to degeneration of the motor neurons of the brain stem.[en.wikipedia.org]
