106 Possible Causes for Myopathic Facies

  • Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy

    facies, eyelids that remain partly open in sleep, and inability to whistle or to purse the lips (tapir mouth).[] Begins with weakness of the muscles of the face and shoulder girdle, causing inability to raise the arms above the head (in female, noticed while combing hair), myopathic[]

  • Secondary Myopathy

    Refractory Acute Kidney Injury Secondary to Hypothyroid-Induced Myopathy: A Contemporary Case Report Abstract This is a case report elucidating how severe hypothyroid-induced myopathy can lead to refractory kidney injury, unmanageable by standard medical and hemodialysis interventions. A 70-year-old female[…][]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Myasthenia gravis is a rare autoimmune disorder of the neuromuscular junction characterized by varying degrees of weakness of the voluntary muscles. Myasthenia gravis affects children and neonates as well as adults. There will be weakness noticed in children too. There might be a weak cry and difficult movement[…][]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) is an idiopathic or paraneoplastic syndrome producing antibodies against presynaptic voltage-gated P/Q calcium channels. This decreases calcium entry into the presynaptic terminal, which prevents binding of vesicles to the presynaptic membrane and acetylcholine release. LEMS[…][]

  • Psychomotor Retardation

    facies, high T3, low T4 and rT3, and normal/mildly elevated TSH levels.[] […] typical clinical signs of AHDS, including severe psychomotor retardation, axial hypotonia, lack of speech, diminished muscle mass, increased muscle tone, hyperreflexia, myopathic[]

  • Allan-Herndon-Dudley Syndrome

    Some patients have myopathic facies.[] facies 2-3 toe syndactyly Bruxism Congenital hypothyroidism Central nervous system degeneration Need help with a diagnosis?[] […] hair quantity Generalized tonic-clonic seizures Postnatal microcephaly Choanal atresia Stereotypy Drooling Coarse hair Widely spaced teeth Broad-based gait Bilateral ptosis Myopathic[]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    The characteristic facies is caused by weakness and wasting of the facial, levator palpebrae and masticatory muscles giving rise to ptosis and the typical myopathic or ‘hatchet[]
