156 Possible Causes for Mild Elbow Contractures

  • Muscular Dystrophy-Dystroglycanopathy Type B6

    Mutation of the LARGE gene is the rarest of the six known genetic causes of α-dystroglycanopathy. We report further a family with MDC1D due to a complex genomic rearrangement that was not apparent on standard sequencing of LARGE. Two sisters in a consanguineous family had moderate mental retardation and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Burn Injury

    Most contractures were mild (47.2%) or moderate (32.9%) in severity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Most contractures were mild (38.5%) or moderate (36.3%) in severity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Among those with at least one contracture, the mean is three (3.38) contractures per person.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Affected individuals may also develop overgrowth (hypertrophy) of calf muscles and mild contractures of the elbows or Achilles tendon.[rarediseases.org]

  • Arthrogryposis due to Muscular Dystrophy

    No significant vertebral column abnormsality developed, but a mild thoracolumbar scoliosis, slight flat thorax and mild bilateral elbow contractures were seen. Case 2.[scilit.net] Physical examination showed markedly limited neck flexion and joint contracture in elbow, hip and ankle. No cardiac involvement but mild ventilatory defect was found.[journals.plos.org] A regular follow-up over 12 years revealed normal cognition, persistent diffuse amyotrophy and arreflexia; development of moderate kyphoscoliosis and mild elbow contractures[scilit.net]

  • Autosomal Recessive Lower Motor Neuron Disease with Childhood Onset

    Affected individuals may also develop overgrowth (hypertrophy) of calf muscles and mild contractures of the elbows or Achilles tendon.[rarediseases.org]

  • Diffuse Scleroderma

    Polyarthralgias or mild arthritis can be prominent. Flexion contractures may develop in the fingers, wrists, and elbows.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Systemic Scleroderma

    Flexion contractures may develop in the fingers, wrists, and elbows. Friction rubs may develop over the joints, tendon sheaths, and large bursae.[merckmanuals.com] Skin Manifestations of Systemic Sclerosis Joint manifestations Polyarthralgias or mild arthritis can be prominent.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Arthrogryposis-Renal Dysfunction-Cholestasis Syndrome

    Our patient had flexion contracture of the knees and elbows. Another common manifestation of ARC syndrome is cholestatic jaundice and hepatomegaly.[gmj.ir] In previous reports, liver disease was accompanied with normal GGT, mild elevation of the liver enzymes (AST or ALT) and direct hyperbilirubinemia.[gmj.ir]
