124 Possible Causes for Muscle Biopsy showing Presence of Vacuoles, Poor Feeding in Early Life

  • Paramyotonia Congenita

    Muscle biopsy - A muscle biopsy showing vacuoles confirms the presence of non-specific myopathy; however, it does not confirm a diagnosis of paramyotonia congenita.[symptoma.com] A positive test is characterized by two key findings in affected muscles: compound muscle action potentials are decreased and weakening of the muscle with exercise.[symptoma.com]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    Muscle biopsy in Pompe disease shows the presence of vacuoles that stain positively for glycogen.[dx.doi.org] Quantitatively, muscle glycogen content is elevated up to tenfold above normal in infantile Pompe disease and to a lesser extent in late onset patients.[dx.doi.org] Furthermore, there is anesthesia risk (see section below) in infantile Pompe disease if an open biopsy is done. 26 This risk should be carefully considered, particularly if[dx.doi.org]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    Hypokalemic periodic paralysis (hypoKPP) is a rare, autosomal dominant channelopathy characterized by muscle weakness or paralysis when there is a fall in potassium levels in the blood. In individuals with this mutation, attacks often begin in adolescence and most commonly occur on awakening or after sleep or rest[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Neurotic Disorder

    Early signs of this form include: Abdominal swelling (due to enlarged liver and spleen) Poor growth Poor weight gain Feeding difficulties Loss of motor skills Diarrhea Vomiting[babysfirsttest.org] Niemann-Pick disease type A (NPD-A), the more severe form of NPD, usually develops in the first few months of life and progress rapidly.[babysfirsttest.org]

  • Rectal Obstruction

    Symptoms in infants include difficult bowel movements, poor feeding, poor weight gain, and progressive abdominal distention.[aafp.org] Early diagnosis is important to prevent complications (e.g., enterocolitis, colonic rupture).[aafp.org] The disease usually presents in infancy, although some patients present with persistent, severe constipation later in life.[aafp.org]

  • Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

    Whilst constitutional, behavioural and mechanical factors may contribute to poor feeding and weight gain, there is a common path of management with greater caloric supplementation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] years of life when lung growth is occurring.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Post-natal growth in surgical lung conditions, such as congenital diaphragmatic hernia and oesophageal atresia with tracheo-oesophageal fistula, is often sub-optimal in the early[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
