850 Possible Causes for Generalized Dystonia, Myopathy

  • Writer's Cramp

    Two cases are reported in which simple writer's cramp turned into dystonic writer's cramp without progression to generalized dystonia.[] SIGNIFICANCE: Our findings may suggest pathophysiological differences between focal and generalized dystonia, and may also point to an inferior sensitivity of SEPs in detecting[] We have noted also the frequent association of other features of segmental and generalized dystonia in patients with dystonic writers' cramp.[]

  • Meige Syndrome

    Deep brain stimulation of the globus pallidus internus (GPi DBS) is effective in the treatment of primary segmental and generalized dystonia.[] Deep brain stimulation for primary generalized dystonia: long-term outcomes. Arch Neurol 2009;66:465–470. 6. Jankovic J.[] In addition, there are forms of dystonia that may have a genetic cause: DYT1 dystonia is a rare form of dominantly inherited generalized dystonia that can be caused by a mutation[]

  • Adult-Onset Cervical Dystonia Type DYT23

    DYT1 dystonia typically presents as early onset, generalized dystonia, starting in the legs.[] COL6A1 Bethlem myopathy COL6A2 Bethlem myopathy type 1 COL6A3 Bethlem myopathy type 2 COL12A1 Borjeson-Forssman-Lehmann syndrome PHF6 Brody myopathy ATP2A1 Brunner syndrome[] Multifocal dystonia affects many different parts of the body. Generalized dystonia affects most of the body, frequently involving the legs and back.[]

  • Spasmodic Torticollis

    This form of focal dystonia is unlikely to spread beyond the neck and shoulders or become generalized dystonia.[] Such a type of focal dystonia is quite unlikely to spread outside the shoulders and neck region and become generalized dystonia.[] Fahn S. generalized dystonia: Concept and treatment.

  • Rhabdomyolysis

    (2) Crush Injury and Trauma In crush injury and other forms of trauma, rhabdomyolysis is generally due to direct muscle injury and ischaemia.[] […] for patients with mitochondrial myopathies. 5 Conclusion Mitochondrial myopathies should be considered in patients presenting with recurrent muscle pain and elevation of[] Zocor Myopathy A number of patients have reported the onset of Zocor myopathy.[]

  • Familial Visceral Myopathy

    A missense variant (R183W) in non-muscle actin (ACTB, β-actin) has been linked to a combination of malformations, sensory hearing loss, and delayed-onset generalized dystonia[] Histological examination of biopsy specimens and molecular analysis show that this patient had both familial visceral myopathy and a mitochondrial myopathy, suggesting that[] Familial visceral myopathy is a form of chronic intestinal pseudoobstruction in which fibrosis of the smooth muscle of the alimentary tract causes protean symptoms of disordered[]

  • MELAS Syndrome
