  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    They will see if the muscles are floppy or flaccid, to check for deep tendon reflexes and muscle fasciculation of the tongue muscle.[medicalnewstoday.com] Additional findings include atrophy and fasciculations of the tongue, gastrointestinal problems (gastroesophageal reflux, constipation, and delayed gastric emptying) bulbar[symptoma.com] Fasciculation's (twitching/writhing) in the tongue may be present. top Type II (Chronic Werdnig-Hoffmann, Intermediate SMA) Symptoms of this form of SMA are most typically[columbiasma.org]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    SMA1 must be distinguished from other causes of neonatal hypotonia which include CNS malformations, metabolic diseases, infections, and congenital myopathies.[neuropathology-web.org] Neither atrophy nor fasciculation of the tongue was observed. Both cases showed rapid progression to mutism within a few years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After one year of follow-up the patient suspended oral steroids, postural tremor of the right hand disappeared and tongue fasciculations were reduced.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Nemaline Myopathy

    RESULTS: Two patients had the typical congenital type, which exhibited neonatal hypotonia and delayed motor milestone, and five patients had the childhood onset type, which[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Eye and tongue movements were normal and his speech was clear. He could not raise his head if supine.[jamanetwork.com] The patient manifested fetal akinesia, neonatal severe hypotonia with muscle weakness, respiratory insufficiency, swallowing disturbance, and ophthalomoplegia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Lipidosis

    Reinvestigation, in Janu- ary 1965, showed the following findings: fasciculation of the tongue, marked finger tremor, muscular rigidity and exaggeration of the deep reflexes[docslide.net]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    SMA1 must be distinguished from other causes of neonatal hypotonia which include CNS malformations, metabolic diseases, infections, and congenital myopathies.[neuropathology-web.org] Slight weakness in the facial muscles and fasciculation of the tongue appeared at age 60. At age 61, she died of sudden respiratory arrest.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fasciculation and atrophy of the tongue appeared at age 68, followed by dysphagia and dysarthria at age 70. She died of respiratory disturbance at age 71.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal and Bulbar Muscular Atrophy

    SMA1 must be distinguished from other causes of neonatal hypotonia which include CNS malformations, metabolic diseases, infections, and congenital myopathies.[neuropathology-web.org] […] of the tongue, proximal weakness, fasciculations in the limb muscles, and an absence of all tendon reflexes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] on tongue, masseter, face, pharyngeal, and some proximal more than distal upper limb muscles, associated to bilateral hand tremor and mild gynecomastia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
