101 Possible Causes for Long Arm Span, Scoliosis

  • Sotos Syndrome

    STUDY DESIGN: This retrospective study reviewed five patients with scoliosis associated with cerebral gigantism (Sotos syndrome).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Preoperative mean Cobb angle for scoliosis was 72.3 (range 54 -130 ) and for kyphosis was 59.8 (range 30 -108 ); postoperative mean Cobb angle for scoliosis was 45.5 (range[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Two patients with Sotos syndrome who developed a severe scoliosis are described.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Marfan Syndrome

    Patients typically have associated problems in addition to scoliosis.[scoliosisassociates.com] Zyloman’s height: Incredibly, his arm span exceeds his height—measuring seven feet long.[upvoted.com] Patients with Marfan syndrome may have the following symptoms and signs on history and examination: general tall stature long arm-span (often exceeding the height of the patient[radiopaedia.org]

  • Homocystinuria

    […] girl presented at the age of 13 years with macrocytic anaemia, cognitive regression and Marfanoid features such as increased arm-span, arachnodactyly, joint hyperlaxity and scoliosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He was found to have weight of 30 kg, height of 143.5 cm and arm span of 154.5 cm. He had triangular face, hypertelorism and a high arched palate.[apicareonline.com] Clinical features include a tall slender habitus, SCOLIOSIS, arachnodactyly, MUSCLE WEAKNESS, genu varus, thin blond hair, malar flush, lens dislocations, an increased incidence[fpnotebook.com]

  • Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type 3

    Spinal fusion for scoliosis.[orthoinfo.aaos.org] At 25 years of age, her body weight was 31.7 kg; her body length according to the right leg was 87 cm; her arm span, measured by segments, was 118 cm; and her sitting height[dovepress.com] The main signs of type III include very short stature, a triangular face, severe scoliosis, grayish sclera, and dentinogenesis imperfecta (DI; see this term).[orpha.net]

  • Congenital Contractural Arachnodactyly

    Affected individuals may have contractures, chest wall deformities, scoliosis, abnormal ear folding and elongated limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] span exceeds height; long, slender fingers and toes; kyphoscoliosis; crumpled ear; joint stiffness Usual onset conception Causes mutation of FBN2 gene Treatment physical[en.wikipedia.org] Scoliosis or kyphoscoliosis may be severe and may require surgical intervention.[symptoma.com]

  • Muscular Atrophy

    […] variable clinical phenotype that comprises arthrogryposis, spontaneously resolving respiratory insufficiency at birth, muscular atrophy predominantly of the distal lower limbs, scoliosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Some of them have a normal life span. Weakness and wasting of muscles begin in the hips and thighs and later spread to the arms, feet, and hands.[merckmanuals.com] Scoliosis occurs because of weakness of the muscles that normally support the spine, which is a flexible column.[mda.org]

  • Diastrophic Dysplasia

    OBJECTIVES: To study the natural history of scoliosis and to classify the patients with different types of scoliosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Diastrophic dysplasia gene maps to the distal long arm of chromosome 5. Proc. natn. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 87, 8056–8059 (1990). 9 Hästbacka, J. et al.[nature.com] The degree of scoliosis was measured according to Cobb's method.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type 16

    Spinal fusion for scoliosis.[orthoinfo.aaos.org] At 25 years of age, her body weight was 31.7 kg; her body length according to the right leg was 87 cm; her arm span, measured by segments, was 118 cm; and her sitting height[dovepress.com] Scoliosis is usually treated aggressively as the problem tends to progress in children with osteogenesis imperfecta.[verywell.com]

  • Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type 5

    Participants with scoliosis greater than 40 degrees will be excluded unless evidence is presented that the scoliosis has been stable for the prior two years.[clinicaltrials.gov] At 25 years of age, her body weight was 31.7 kg; her body length according to the right leg was 87 cm; her arm span, measured by segments, was 118 cm; and her sitting height[dovepress.com] Birth History and past surgical history Current medical history Scoliosis evaluation Walking ability Questionnaire Dental Quality of Life Questionnaire Scoliosis and fractures[rarediseasesnetwork.org]

  • Hypogonadism

    […] skills, facial abnormalities (eg, a narrow bitemporal dimension, almond-shaped eyes, a mouth with thin upper lips and down-turned corners), and skeletal abnormalities (eg, scoliosis[msdmanuals.com] They may develop gynecomastia and grow to eunuchoidal body proportions (arm span exceeds height by 5 cm; pubic to floor length exceeds crown to pubic length by 5 cm) because[msdmanuals.com] […] fusion of the epiphyses is delayed and long bone growth continues.[msdmanuals.com]
