68 Possible Causes for Muscle Weakness - Proximal Upper and Lower Limbs Affected

  • Autosomal Recessive Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2U

    Arthur G. Steinberg, Alexander G. Bearn Butterworth-Heinemann, 11.09.2013 - 160 Seiten Progress in Medical Genetics: Volume 5 covers the improvements in nutrition and control of childhood disease. This book is divided into five chapters that evaluate the characteristics of thalassemias, an inherited defect in[…][books.google.de]

  • Autosomal Dominant Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1H

    LGMD1H is a form of muscular dystrophy characterized by a slow progression of proximal muscle weakness in both upper and lower limbs affecting several members of a four generations[telethon.it] OMIM : 58 Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 1H (LGMD1H) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by adult onset of progressive proximal muscle weakness affecting[malacards.org] LGMD2L (anoctominopathy) Affected individuals were reported to have proximal muscle weakness in lower and upper limbs and muscle hypertrophy was common.[rarediseases.org]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Typically, proximal lower limb and truncal muscles are affected first, but eventually, there is progression to upper limb muscles and extremities 1,2.[radiopaedia.org] LGMD2L (anoctominopathy) Affected individuals were reported to have proximal muscle weakness in lower and upper limbs and muscle hypertrophy was common.[rarediseases.org] The characteristic feature is progressive muscle weakness with fatty replacement of muscle that begins in early childhood 1,2.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    There is symmetrical and proximal muscle weakness, with the lower limbs being more severely affected than the upper limbs.[orpha.net] Clinical examination reveals muscle pseudohypertrophy affecting the calf muscles and there may be atrophy of more proximal muscles such as the quadriceps.[orpha.net]

  • Autosomal Dominant Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1F

    Autosomal dominant limb-girdle muscular dystrophy-2 is a myopathy characterized by proximal muscle weakness primarily affecting the lower limbs, but also affecting the upper[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Definition An autosomal dominant myopathy characterized by proximal muscle weakness primarily affecting the lower limbs, but also affecting the upper limbs in most patients[uniprot.org] […] muscular dystrophy 1F (LGMD1F) [MIM:608423]: An autosomal dominant myopathy characterized by proximal muscle weakness primarily affecting the lower limbs, but also affecting[genecards.org]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    There is symmetrical and proximal muscle weakness, with the lower limbs being more severely affected than the upper limbs.[orpha.net] Clinical examination reveals muscle pseudohypertrophy affecting the calf muscles and there may be atrophy of more proximal muscles such as the quadriceps.[orpha.net]

  • Autosomal Dominant Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1G

  • Autosomal Recessive Lower Motor Neuron Disease with Childhood Onset

    LGMD2L (anoctominopathy) Affected individuals were reported to have proximal muscle weakness in lower and upper limbs and muscle hypertrophy was common.[rarediseases.org] Affected individuals display slowly progressive muscle weakness and most retain the ability to walk into late adolescence.[rarediseases.org] All affected individuals had developmentaldelays.[rarediseases.org]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    , where the symptoms may start either distally or proximally in the upper and lower limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] weakness and wasting, in which onset of symptoms may start either distally or proximally in the upper and lower limbs.[orpha.net] Approximately two thirds of patients with typical ALS have a spinal form of the disease (limb onset) and present with symptoms related to focal muscle weakness and wasting[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • X-linked Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Later on, weakness and atrophy may expand to the proximal muscles of the lower limbs and/or to the distal upper limbs. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20170900}.[genecards.org] […] of the proximal lower limbs.[frontiersin.org] Note The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.[genecards.org]
