85 Possible Causes for Limited Extension of Elbow Joints

  • Smith-McCort Dysplasia

    Smith-McCort dysplasia (SMC OMIM 615222) and Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen dysplasia (DMC OMIM 223800) are allelic skeletal dysplasias caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in DYM (OMIM 607461). Both disorders share the same skeletal phenotypes characterized by spondylo-epi-metaphyseal dysplasia with[…][]

  • Antecubital Pterygium

    , and limited elbow extension with unimpeded elbow flexion.[] The consistent features include a fleshy web extending across the anterior aspect of the cubital fossa, absence of the long head of the triceps, limitation of full elbow extension[] […] of full elbow extension, and missing skin creases over the terminal interphalangeal joints of the fingers (summary by Wallis et al., 1988).[]

  • Metaphyseal Chondrodysplasia Type Kaitila

    Limited elbow extension MedGen UID: 401158 • Concept ID: C1867103 • Finding Limited ability to straighten the arm at the elbow joint.[] The disorder has several characteristic orthopaedic manifestations, including joint laxity, limited elbow extension, ankle varus, and genu varum.[]

  • Spondyloepimetaphyseal Dysplasia Type Matrilin-3

    * Short stature * Large head * Prominent forehead * Saddle nose * Low set ears * Short neck * Loose wrist * Loose finger joints * Broad chest * Limited elbow extension *[] Osteoporosis Causes - Spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia with multiple dislocations * Abnormal bone growth * Broad chest * Large head * Limited elbow extension * Long thin fingers[] * Loose joints * Low set ears * Osteoporosis * Prominent forehead * Saddle nose * Scoliosis * Short neck * Short stature Prevention - Spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia with[]

  • Hypochondroplasia

    […] of elbow extension, and mild joint laxity.[] […] of elbow extension with increased mobility in other joints increased lumbar lordosis (exaggerated curvature at the lower end of the spine) joint pain due to abnormal alignment[] FGFR3 ) 2 Mutations: Characteristics: Short stature, stocky build, large head, shortening of the proximal or middle segments of the extremities, short broad hands and feet, limitation[]

  • Diastrophic Dysplasia

    limitation in elbow and knee joints, club feet, ulnar diviation of hands, shortened phalanges, and, in particular, abduction of thumbs ('hitchhiker thumbs') and big toes.[] […] long bones of the extremities associated with other skeletal deformities which, taken as a whole, are typical of this syndrome: micrognathia, cervical kyphosis, persistent extension[]

  • Pseudoachondroplasia

    Joint hypermobility is seen, especially at the wrists and fingers; however, elbow extension is often limited. Hands and feet are short.[] Multiple other skeletal features include genu valgum, genu vara, or “windswept deformities” of the legs, limitations of elbow extension, ulnar deviation of the hand, scoliosis[] Osteoarthritis occurs in early adulthood, especially in the weight-bearing joints. The most important complications of pseudoachondroplasia are orthopedic in nature.[]

  • Congenital Radioulnar Synostosis

    General examination revealed a limited extension at the elbow joint with limited forearm range in pronation and supination.[]

  • Patella Aplasia - Hypoplasia

    At the elbow joint, there may be webbing of the elbow, loss of extension, or limitation of pronation and supination.[] The elbows may have limited motion (e.g., limited pronation, supination, extension). Subluxation of the radial head may occur.[] Throughout the examination both the upper limbs were flexed at the elbow joint with limited extension in between [Figure 2] .[]

  • X-Linked Intellectual Disability Type Turner

    […] straighten the arm at the elbow joint.[] Intellectual disability MedGen UID: 334384 • Concept ID: C1843367 • Finding Limited elbow extension MedGen UID: 401158 • Concept ID: C1867103 • Finding Limited ability to[]
