    upper and lower limb or abdominal musculature. 1 The prevalence of motor involvement is about 0.17% among patients with herpes zoster. 2 Abdominal or flank bulges typically[] Classically, reactivation of herpes zoster infection affects sensory nerve roots; however, it may extend to motor involvement, which can include paresis of diaphragmatic,[]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    RESULT: From a total of 118 cases, the most frequent features were Polyhydramnios (58%), feeding therapy (77%), intubation and ventilation (58%); neonatal death was reported[] […] and lower limbs.[] […] to onset in late adulthood with extremely mild symptoms Congenital DM1 : fetal onset, involving musculature and CNS; severe Prenatal features: decreased fetal movement, polyhydramnios[]

  • Spina Bifida

    , one consistently sees more defects on the upper limbs than on the lower limbs.[] This affects the lower limbs along with problems with bladder and bowel function. In extreme cases, the trunk and upper extremities are involved.[] In fact, this applies not only to specific anomalies but also to general patterns, such as the fact that in pathological conditions affecting different regions of the body[]

  • Thanatophoric Dysplasia

    Two fetuses of TD1 were characterized by polyhydramnios, macrocephaly, short limbs, a narrow thoracic cage and curved short femora, but without a cloverleaf skull at 27 and[] Upper limbs were 14 cm long and permanently flexed, due to ankylosis of both elbow joints. Lower limbs were 18 cm long.[] We report on the prenatal diagnosis of a TD fetus, showing severe shortness of limbs and polyhydramnios, by identification of a mutation in the FGFR3 gene.[]

  • Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    The pregnancies were complicated by polyhydramnios. All presented with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, severe muscle wasting, lung hypoplasia, and hydrops.[] Results In the present study, 28 (56%) patients were females and 22 (44%) males; both sexes were affected. 27 (54%) patients were affected in all four limbs; lower and upper[] A young mother had a stillborn infant at 33 weeks' gestation, the pregnancy complicated by polyhydramnios.[]

  • Autosomal-Recessive Non-Lethal Multiple Pterygium Syndrome

    Associations polyhydramnios congenital cardiac anomalies 10 omphalocoele 7 Antenatal ultrasound Described features are wide and include presence of cutaneous webs (pterygia[] As suggested by Bamshad et al. the above mentioned definition/diagnostic criteria (two major diagnostic criteria involving the upper limb and lower limb) of DA should hold[] Polyhydramnios was present. Scalp edema and short neck were noted [Figure - 1]. The mouth of the fetus was open throughout the examination.[]

  • Neurogenic Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    Clinical description Failure of normal deglutition results in polyhydramnios, and a lack of movement of the diaphragm and intercostal muscles leads to pulmonary hypoplasia[] […] both upper and lower limbs and with severe bone deformity.[] […] stiffness Stiff joint Stiff joints [ more ] 0001387 Low-set, posteriorly rotated ears 0000368 Muscular hypotonia Low or weak muscle tone 0001252 Narrow mouth Small mouth 0000160 Polyhydramnios[]

  • Arthrogryposis due to Muscular Dystrophy

    May be associated with increased nuchal translucency, polyhydramnios, and cystic hygroma. Differential diagnosis includes more than 150 conditions.[] Clinical manifestations of arthrogryposis include deforming joint contractures; in most cases (84%) both upper and lower limbs are involved, although only upper (5%) or lower[] The term Pena-Shokeir syndrome (PSS) refers to cases of AMC that also have craniofacial abnormalities, polyhydramnios, short umbilical cord, and pulmonary hypoplasia.[]

  • Schneckenbecken Dysplasia

    Genetics List of Genes Reorder Groups Close Signs / Symptoms (18) Craniofacial Flat midface Macrocephaly Show images Growth Dwarfism, micromelic Intrauterine development Polyhydramnios[] Lower limbs are more affected than the upper limbs, showing nonfunctional fingers ...[] Eight of the nine lethal pregnancies were complicated by polyhydramnios at the beginning of the third trimester.[]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    At the severe end of the spectrum are conditions that are apparent even before birth because of decreased fetal movements and polyhydramnios.[] Typically, proximal lower limb and truncal muscles are affected first, but eventually, there is progression to upper limb muscles and extremities 1,2.[] Congenital DM1 often presents before birth as polyhydramnios and reduced fetal movements.[]
