125 Possible Causes for No Muscle Weakness, Pseudohypertrophy of Calf Muscles

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    It causes progressive weakness in muscles of the face, arms, legs, and around the shoulders and chest.[] Pseudohypertrophy of the calf muscles is due to fibrous tissue and fat infiltration. Involvement of the heart consists of usually terminal cardiomyopathy.[] Calf muscles initially enlarge and the enlarged muscle tissue is eventually replaced with fat and connective tissue (pseudohypertrophy).[]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Occasionally, however, females who carry a DMD gene mutation may have muscle weakness and cramping.[] Early signs may include pseudohypertrophy (enlargement of calf muscles), low endurance, and difficulties in standing unaided or inability to ascend staircases.[] Clinical examination reveals muscle pseudohypertrophy affecting the calf muscles and there may be atrophy of more proximal muscles such as the quadriceps.[]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2C

    Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy includes a group of inherited disorders that cause muscle weakness and decreased amount of skeletal muscle involving the muscles around the[] License: Public Domain On examination, you may find pseudohypertrophy of gastrocnemius (calf) muscles. Examine the mental state of the child as retardation is common.[] weakness and atrophy frequently associated with calf hypertrophy, diaphragmatic weakness, and/or variable cardiac abnormalities.[]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    We report the case of a male who presented in infancy with motor delay and muscle weakness.[] She presented with progressive muscle weakness, tremor, seizure, and cognitive impairment.[] Patients with milder forms of SMA exhibit slowly progressive muscle weakness over many years.[]

  • Adult Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    Muscle weakness seen in SMA4 is similar to the muscle weakness seen in other genetic conditions.[] weakness and atrophy.[] The nerve cells tend to cause muscle weakness, tremor, and twitching.[]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Swallowing muscle weakness : Infants with swallowing or sucking weakness can be fed with a gastrostomy tube.[] SMA type 3 causes variable muscle weakness, cramps and fatigue.[] Respiratory muscle weakness, which predisposes the majority of patients suffering from type 1 or type 2 to nocturnal hypoventilation, recurrent infections and respiratory[]

  • Hyaline Body Myopathy

    It is characterised by the presence of subsarcolemmal hyaline bodies in type 1 muscle fibres and predominantly proximal muscle weakness.[] muscle pseudohypertrophy 0003707 Centrally nucleated skeletal muscle fibers 0003687 Congestive heart failure Cardiac failure Cardiac failures Heart failure [ more ] 0001635[] Slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy developed with scapuloperoneal distribution; age at onset was from the first to the fifth decade.[]

  • Hoffman Syndrome

    Despite this muscular appearance, however, patients usually report muscle weakness, which sometimes causes difficulty in sitting and in controlling their head position. 3,4[] […] of limbs; hence the athletic or Herculean look. 4 Our patient presented with short stature, delayed mile stones and the pseudohypertrophy of calf muscle.[] […] of calf muscles.[]
