207 Possible Causes for Genu Valgum, Joint Hypermobility

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 4

    Short stature. ligamentous laxity/joint hypermobility. Odontoid hypoplasia leading to atlantoaxial instability. Spinal cord compression leading to cervical myelopathy.[] valgum Thoracic manifestations anterior sternal bowing, increased AP chest diameter, wide ribs Echocardiography late onset aortic regurgitation Treatment and Prognosis Life[] Joint hypermobility (of the wrist in particular) may develop and can be especially helpful in establishing clinical suspicion as it is unique to MPS IVA and MPS IVB among[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    Abstract A 16-year-old boy with widening of the large joints of the extremities and bilateral genu valgum had been extensively treated with oral vitamin D, with little clinical[] valgum, waddling gait, and laxity of joints.[] Clinical features include short trunk dwarfism, dysostosis multiplex, progressive spinal deformity, short neck, pectus carinatum, genu valgum, pes planus, and odontoid hypoplasia[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 4A

    In addition, joint hypermobility is unique to MPS IV.[] MPS-IVA commonly manifests in form of kyphosis or gibbus, scoliosis, pectus carinatum, genu valgum, gait disturbances and frequent falls, but the clinical presentation varies[] Skeletal deformities (platyspondyly, kyphosis, scoliosis, pectus carinatum , genu valgum , long bone deformities) become more pronounced as the child grows.[]

  • Marfan Syndrome

    Physical examination revealed a lens dislocation with strabismus, high palate, positive wrist and thumb signs, joint hypermobility, and pes planus.[] Skeletal involvement is often the first sign of the disease and can include dolichostenomelia (excessive length of extremities), large size, arachnodactyly, joint hypermobility[]

  • Osteoarthritis

    Risk factors for OA include age, injury, anatomic joint abnormalities, heredity, high bone mineral density, joint hypermobility, obesity, muscle weakness, and overuse or under[] Jordan and Virginia Byers Kraus, Inverse association of general joint hypermobility with hand and knee osteoarthritis and serum cartilage oligomeric matrix protein levels,[] Established individual risk factors include: heredity (mainly for polyarticular forms with hands involvement) obesity (mainly for knee OA), hypermobility mechanical factors[]

  • Pseudoachondroplasia

    Joint hypermobility is seen, especially at the wrists and fingers; however, elbow extension is often limited. Hands and feet are short.[] valgum and ligamentous laxity, allowing the joints to telescope; normal appearing head and face.[] Some types of acquired hypermobility can, however, be disadvantageous, an example being tabes dorsalis with its flaccid joints and perhaps pain as well.[]

  • Hypermobility Syndrome

    Treating joint hypermobility syndrome There's no cure for joint hypermobility syndrome.[] Scoliosis, genu valgum, pes planus, and excessive lateral motion of patella or proximal interphalangeal joints are evident on examination.[] Other associated findings that might be present are [Suggesting some connective tissue disorder] Scoliosis Pes planus Genu valgum Lordosis Marfanoid habitus Varicose veins[]

  • Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Classic Type

    Deficiency or alteration of the collagen present in the tissues results in some classic signs such as skin hyper extensibility, joint hypermobility, and vascular fragility[] hypermobility (generalized or restricted to small joints).[] hypermobility.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 1

    Features include short-trunk dwarfism, short neck, joint hypermobility, respiratory disease, cardiac disease, impaired vision with corneal clouding, hearing loss, dental abnormalities[] Bone deformities like kyphosis or gibbus, scoliosis, genu valgum, pes cavus have been described and may cause gait disturbances.[] valgum.[]

  • Congenital Genu Flexum
