236 Possible Causes for Failure to Thrive, Muscle Weakness, Risk of Cancer Possibly Increased

  • Tyrosinemia Type 1

    Case presentation: A six years old girl presented with difficulty in walking and weakness of muscles so she was admitted in neurology ward in Qaem hospital in Mashhad.[] The medication lessens the risk for liver cancer. Your child should start taking Nitisinone as soon as possible.[] Although failure to thrive is one of the typical features in HT1, our proband, similar to the reported Scandinavian patients, had normal growth and development.[]

  • Vitamin D Deficiency

    Apart from the well-known effects on bone metabolism, this condition is also associated with muscle weakness, predominantly of the proximal muscle groups.[] The lack therefore may indicate possible increase of cancer risk. [5] Research is often conflicting in this area. [1] Myofascial Trigger Points/Myalgia [2] Other potential[] She presented with fractures during the first year-of-life followed by bone deformities, delayed development, failure-to-thrive, and pneumonias.[]

  • Metabolic Disease

    We present a previously healthy adolescent who was admitted to our emergency department with a four-day history of myalgia, muscle weakness and dark urine.[] increases the risk of recurrent preeclampsia, according to a retrospective cohort study of 197 women who had preeclampsia during their first pregnancy.[] Symptoms of Inherited Metabolic Diseases can include a failure to thrive, seizures and other neurologic disorders, developmental delays, abnormal blood tests and hypotonia[]

  • Acidosis

    Measurement of transdiaphragmatic pressure is a useful diagnostic test for documenting respiratory muscle weakness.[] risk of bladder cancer.[] Failure to thrive, rickets, stunting of growth (seen in children) and osteomalacia or osteopenia (seen in adults) are a result of urinary calcium wastage and a loss of calcium[]

  • Islet Cell Tumor

    These include muscle weakness, aches, cramps, numbness, tingling, frequent urination, confusion, thirst, and rapid heartbeat Somatostatinoma: Diarrhea Gallstones Yellowing[] […] causes such as other malignancies - a risk that in general increases with age-prostate cancer, unknown primary or even non-malignant causes, such as hepatic abscesses, in[] , or dizzy Blood clots VIPoma Symptoms include: Weight loss Stomach cramps or pain Watery diarrhea Dehydration symptoms Symptoms linked to low potassium levels, such as muscle[]

  • Vitamin B Deficiency

    The most common manifestations were paresthesia (n 31), muscle weakness (n 15), abnormal gait (n 11), and polyneuropathy (n 7).[] risk of fracture Mild diarrhea or constipation Impaired vision Possible increased risk of cardiovascular disease Possible increased risk of cancer Lightheadedness or fainting[] […] to thrive and delayed development in infants.[]

  • Hypervitaminosis D

    We present a 5-month-old infant who had failure to thrive, refusal to feed, delayed motor development, truncal hypotonia, and dehydration.[] The patient had had an attack of “flu” five months previously, and since that time he had noted recurring headaches, muscle weakness, bouts of conjunctivitis, and increasing[] Our study is limited by the use of a preneoplastic lesion, which confers a significantly increased risk of ESCC ( 12 ) but is not itself cancer.[]

  • Osteomalacia

    Tumour-induced osteomalacia (TIO) is a rare paraneoplastic syndrome usually presenting with bone pain, fracture of bones and muscle weakness.[] It is also possible that the risk of getting other diseases might be increased.[] Rickets Clinical feature General Failure to thrive Apathetic, listless, irritable Shorter, lower body weight and anemic Excessive sweating particularly at hand & face[]

  • Hypercalcemia

    She had nausea, vomiting, leg pain, polyuria, polydipsia, and muscle weakness. At the time of relapse, the ionized calcium level was 1.99 mmol/L.[] All cancer patients should receive bisphosphonates as the first line of treatment may not be possible to complete without any risks and side effects.[] Here we present the case of an infant with hypercalcemia who presented with fatigue, irritability, and failure to thrive after prolonged immobilization.[]

  • Vitamin Deficiency

    Deficiency of this vitamin results in ataxia, hyporeflexia, and muscle weakness.[] However, risk of certain cancers may be increased after beta-carotene supplementation.[] Complications can include: Excessively high calcium level Failure to thrive (in infants) Kidney damage due to high calcium Liver damage Taking too much vitamin A during pregnancy[]
