845 Possible Causes for Joint Contracture, Joint Stiffness, Progressive Contractures

  • Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    Prenatal diagnosis is usually based on the detection of diminished fetal movements and joint contractures on ultrasound.[] Abstract Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC) is a rare disorder characterized by non-progressive, multiple contractures.[] Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC) is a complex disorder that leads to joint stiffness and deformities in 2 or more joints in afflicted children.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 2

    Major clinical manifestations include joint contractures, obstructive and restrictive airway disease, cardiac disease, skeletal deformities and often mental retardation.[] Flexion contractures. Progressive deafness - usually mixed sensorineural/conductive variety.[] Bone and joint involvement leads to skeletal deformities and joint stiffness.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    Regardless of phenotype, all patients had various degrees of infiltrated facies, short stature, dysostosis multiplex, joint contractures, and corneal opacity typical of the[] ; hip containment surgeries; corrective osteotomy for progressive valgus deformity at the knee; posterior spinal fusion Multispecialty care is mandatory for these patients[] contractures, and funnel chest.[]

  • Systemic Scleroderma

    Restriction of joint movement, contractures and muscle atrophy due to skin sclerosis.[] With disease progression, ulcerations over joints and flexion contractures of the fingers, wrists, and elbows may occur.[] Other signs and symptoms of systemic scleroderma from internal organ involvement may include: Joint inflammation with stiffness and pain Sores (ulcers), mostly on the fingertips[]

  • Joint Contracture

    CONCLUSIONS: Traumatic elbow injuries carry a risk of joint contracture, 12% of our subjects did not regain a functional range of motion, and 12% had a joint contracture that[] […] of molecular treatment to prevent the progression of joint contracture prior to intervention with physical therapy.[] Case studies: Contracture and stiff joint management with Dynasplint. J Orthop Sports Phys Ther. 1987;8:498-504. Steffen TM, Mollinger LA.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 1

    Other treatments Orthopaedic surgery for joint contractures and skeletal deformities.[] stiffness The cause of MPS I is inherited genetic mutations on chromosome 4 that leads to deficiency in the lysosomal enzyme a-L-iduronidase.[] Mucopolysaccharidosis type II (see this term), an X-linked recessive disorder in which severe joint contractures are a characteristic symptom, also has many features in common[]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    The patient rapidly developed joint contractures and spine rigidity with the head only mildly flexed. Serum creatine kinase was moderately elevated.[] We report the first known Egyptian patient with FCMD, established by clinical features of generalized weakness, pseudohypertrophy of calf muscles, progressive joint contractures[] CMD results in overall muscle weakness with possible joint stiffness or looseness.[]

  • Dupuytren Contracture

    Assessments included change in joint contracture, range of motion, and the percentage of joints that achieved contracture of 5 or less at day 30 after the last injection.[] This problem is caused by a progressive contracture (shortening) of the palmar fascia that produces flexion deformities of the fingers.[] Other doctors believe that splints cause unnecessary pain, joint stiffness and oedema (swelling), so they prefer not to use them.[]

  • Melorheostosis

    Melorheostosis is a rare condition which can cause soft tissue joint contractures.[] Melorheostosis often is disabling because of progressive contracture of the joint and soft tissue involved.[] May have associated vascular malformations or hemangiomas, aneurysms, neurofibromatosis, linear scleroderma, tuberous sclerosis, focal subcutaneous fibrosis Causes pain, joint[]

  • Progressive Pseudorheumatoid Dysplasia

    , motor weakness and joint contractures of early –between age 3 and 8– onset, accompanied by progressive cartilage loss and bone destruction.[] These joints develop progressive contractures.[] Typical signs are prominent epiphysis, progressive joint stiffness, muscle weakness and early fatigue [ 1 ].[]
