11 Possible Causes for Limb Joint Contracture, Occipital Slowing

  • Stroke

    […] disuse of the limb with the use of splints or other tools to stabilize the joint.[en.wikipedia.org] After full range has been achieved by the therapist, the limb should be positioned in the lengthened positions to prevent against further contractures, skin breakdown, and[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Lafora Disease

    Contractures: Distal Pes equinus Low body mass: Small muscles Muscle Scapular winging Respiratory insufficiency Axial: Neck & Trunk Limbs Swallowing: Normal Adult onset:[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] Background activity continued to be slow but there were persistent discharges of slow spike wave complexes of one cycle/second and 100–200 μV in the occipital regions.[jnnp.bmj.com] Earliest symptoms are headaches, decline in school performance, spontaneous and induced myoclonus, and convulsive seizures, with EEG showing background slowing and occipital-based[doi.org]

  • Smith Lemli Opitz Syndrome

    .: A “new” lethal multiple congenital anomaly syndrome: Joint contractures, cerebellar hypoplasia, renal hypoplasia, urogenital anomalies, tongue cysts, shortens of limbs,[link.springer.com] EEGs revealed mild generalized slowing with right- and left-side parietal occipital spike-wave discharges.[doi.org]

  • Congenital Ichthyosis

    We report a male patient with typical features of cerebro-oculo-facio-skeletal syndrome, diagnosed on the basis of the characteristic facies, joint contractures and microcephaly[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electroencephalography documented diffuse slow wave dysrhythmia and marked epileptic discharges, namely bilateral occipital dominant, and low-voltage multifocal spikes which[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , but complicated by congenital ichthyosis on his face, trunk and limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Autosomal Dominant Mental Retardation 28

    ; Legs Arms Leg muscle wasting Seizures (50%) Mental retardation: Severe Skeletal Small head Kyphoscoliosis Joint contractures Progression: Rapid Brain MRI Hypomyelination[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] […] waves, with high points in the occipital region, and spike-waves complexes in occipital region (21).[scielo.org.co] Age: 1 to 3 years Nystagmus Eye Nystagmus: Horizontal & Rotary Exotropia (50%) Fundi: Pale Pupillary reflex: Slow Visual acuity: Reduced Motor Axial hypotonia Spasticity: Limbs[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

  • Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Beasley Cohen Type

    Abnormalities of muscles, including hypotonia and permanently bent joints (contractures), are among the characteristic signs of the musculocontractural and myopathic forms[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Positive Spike Phenomenon OMIM:130300 Electroencephalographic Peculiarity: Fronto-Precentral Beta Wave Groups OMIM:130400 Electroencephalographic Peculiarity: Occipital Slow[informatics.jax.org] The spondylodysplastic type features short stature and skeletal abnormalities such as abnormally curved (bowed) limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Exostoses - Anetodermia - Brachydactyly Type E Syndrome

    * Dwarfism * Dwarfism bluish sclerae * Dwarfism deafness retinitis pigmentosa * Dwarfism lethal type advanced bone age * Dwarfism short limb absent fibulas very short digits[medicalgeek.com] Positive Spike Phenomenon OMIM:130300 Electroencephalographic Peculiarity: Fronto-Precentral Beta Wave Groups OMIM:130400 Electroencephalographic Peculiarity: Occipital Slow[informatics.jax.org] * Dwarfism stiff joint ocular abnormalities * Dwarfism syndesmodysplasic * Dwarfism tall vertebrae * Dwarfism thin bones multiple fractures * Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome[medicalgeek.com]

  • Radio-Renal Syndrome

    Those with arthritis, atrophy of muscle, scarring limiting joint range of motion (contracture), and shortening of limb length tend to do worse.[medicinenet.com] Electroencephalography showed diffuse slowing without epileptiform discharges.[aafp.org] A brain MRI showed abnormal T2 signal, predominantly in the white matter of the posterior temporal, occipital, and parietal lobes, without abnormal enhancement ( Figure 1[aafp.org]

  • Autosomal Dominant Mental Retardation 5

    Symptoms Joints: Congenital severe joint contractures Limbs: Thin fingers with absent knuckles; Reduced interphalangeal creases; Hypoplastic dermal ridges; Inability to make[findzebra.com] […] waves, with high points in the occipital region, and spike-waves complexes in occipital region (21).[scielo.org.co] (25%); [Limbs]; Elbow contractures (86%); Knee contractures (81%); Subluxation of patella; [Hands]; Arachnodactyly; Camptodactyly; Ulnar deviation of fingers; Adducted thumbs[findzebra.com]

  • Adrenomyodystrophy

    * Dwarfism * Dwarfism bluish sclerae * Dwarfism deafness retinitis pigmentosa * Dwarfism lethal type advanced bone age * Dwarfism short limb absent fibulas very short digits[medicalgeek.com] MRT shows hyperintensities in the parieto-occipital white matter and in the spinal cord.[alzheimer-europe.org] * Dwarfism stiff joint ocular abnormalities * Dwarfism syndesmodysplasic * Dwarfism tall vertebrae * Dwarfism thin bones multiple fractures * Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome[medicalgeek.com]
