Impaired ability to close eyes, move the lips, and raise arms overhead may occur.[physio-pedia.com] Patients typically present during infancy or early childhood with progressive weakness, hypotonia, muscle atrophy, hyporeflexia /areflexia, and varying degrees of bulbar weakness[amboss.com]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is characterized by rapidly evolving ascending weakness, mild sensory loss, and hyporeflexia or areflexia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] sensory symptoms or signs Cranial nerve involvement, especially bilateral weakness of facial muscles Recovery beginning two to four weeks after progression ceases Autonomic[aafp.org] Physical examination confirmed lower left facial palsy and paresthesia of his extremities with hyporeflexia of his lower limbs and sensory loss of all four extremities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal and Bulbar Muscular Atrophy

    The patient clinical picture included gait impairment, global hyporeflexia, proximal muscle atrophy of upper limbs, deviation of the uvula to right during phonation and tongue[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Examination revealed gynecomastia, mild facial diplegia with temporal bilateral muscular atrophy, tongue fasciculations, lower extremity hypopallesthesia, muscle wasting and[tremorjournal.org] […] bulbar muscles (those of the face and throat).The condition mainly affects males, with onset between the ages of 30 and 60. 0001288 Gynecomastia Enlarged male breast 0000771 Hyporeflexia[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

Weakness of facial muscles may also occur.[rarediseases.org]

  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy Type 2

    Assessment of the patient's brother, aged 21, revealed an irregular heart beat on cardiac auscultation, and neurological study identified myotatic hyporeflexia, mild atrophy[revportcardiol.org] There was proximal weakness in both upper and lower extremities. There was also mild weakness of ankle dorsiflexion and plantar flexion.[omicsonline.org] However, because the symptoms vary in intensity, family members may have such mild forms of the illness that they are unaware of any muscle problems.[brainfoundation.org.au]
