1,286 Possible Causes for Hydrocephalus, Muscle Hypotonia

  • Dandy-Walker Syndrome

    An adult with asymptomatic Dandy-Walker malformation without hydrocephalus was studied.[] MORE INFO Roadmap to a Cure Hydrocephalus Patient Registry WALK To End Hydrocephalus Win a #NOMOREBS t-shirt![] Optimal treatment for hydrocephalus related to Dandy-Walker syndrome (DWS) remains elusive.[]

  • Pelizaeus-Merzbacher Disease

    […] have been added to the chapters on metabolic disorders, brain injuries, congenital malformations of the brain and skull, cerebellar disorders, brain tumors, phakomatoses, hydrocephalus[] The difficulties with movement can include spasticity (stiff or rigid muscles), hypotonia (floppiness), choreoathetosis (extra movements) and ataxia (unsteadiness/loss of[] hypotonia appears alongside and apart from neurological signs we can mention scoliosis as well.[]

  • Homocystinuria

    Despite the therapy, the patient developed tetraventricular hydrocephalus requiring ventricular drainage.[] hypotonia at birth; progressive scoliosis, present at birth or within the first year of life; and scleral fragility and increased risk of rupture of the globe.[] In addition, patients with cblC present with acute neurological deterioration, retinal deterioration, microcephaly and severe brain abnormalities including hydrocephalus,[]

  • Aicardi's Syndrome

    Treatment for porencephalic cysts and/or hydrocephalus is often via a shunt or endoscopic fenestration of the cysts, though some require no treatment.[] Other features of Aicardi syndrome may include a small head (microcephaly), decreased muscle tone (axial hypotonia), missing eyes (anophthalmia), gastrointestinal difficulties[] […] or “low muscle tone” is most common).[]

  • Nonketotic Hyperglycinemia

    This suggests that the development of hydrocephalus in NKH is an additional poor prognostic sign.[] Affected infants experience a progressive lack of energy (lethargy), feeding difficulties, weak muscle tone (hypotonia), abnormal jerking movements, and life-threatening problems[] The signs and symptoms often include progressive lack of energy (lethargy), feeding difficulties, poor muscle tone ( hypotonia ), abnormal jerking movements (myoclonic jerking[]

  • Chromosome 17p13.1 Deletion Syndrome

    […] reflux Chest Breasts: inverted nipples, bilaterally Neurologic Behavioral Psychiatric Manifestations: developmental disorder, pervasive Neurologic Central Nervous System: hydrocephalus[] Diseases related with Hydrocephalus and Webbed neck In the following list you will find some of the most common rare diseases related to Hydrocephalus and Webbed neck.[] hypotonia - Delay in motor function Delay in fine motor skills Cognitive development Global delay Mild to moderate global delay Global delay Normal at 2 years Mild delay[]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    It is an uncommon entity that mainly occurs in children with hydrocephalus after successful shunting of lateral ventricles.[] Loss of lower motor neurons causes denervation atrophy of muscle, manifested by severe hypotonia, weakness, and inability to breathe.[] Symptoms may include hypotonia (severely reduced muscle tone), diminished limb movements, lack of tendon reflexes, fasciculations, tremors, swallowing and feeding difficulties[]

  • Williams Syndrome

    T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging with contrast medium showed a heterogeneously enhanced tumor in the right cerebellum with severe hydrocephalus.[] This can become complicated by low muscle tone or hypotonia in the muscles.[] Neurology Children: Hypotonia, mild cerebellar and extrapyramidal signs are common 10 Refer to neurologist, if indicated.[]

  • Hypomagnesemia

    We describe a newborn infant with massive congenital hydrocephalus, presenting with hypomagnesemia secondary to magnesium losses through cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) aspirations[]

  • Gigantism

    MRI showed an invasive mass measuring 56.2 58.1 45.0 mm, with compression of optic chiasma, bilateral cavernous sinus invasion, and hydrocephalus.[] hypotonia; and a distinctive facial appearance.[] […] with polyhydramnios; macrosomia; macrocephaly; visceromegaly including bilateral nephromegaly, hepatomegaly, cardiomegaly; thymus hyperplasia; cryptorchidism; generalized muscle[]
