161 Possible Causes for Not All Patients Have a Myopathy

Did you mean: Not, All Patients Have a Myopathy

  • Scoliosis

    CONCLUSIONS: All patients with 'idiopathic' scoliosis deserve a careful neurological evaluation, even if they have minimal muscle symptoms in the extremities.[] The frequent occurrence of scoliosis in patients with CORE Myopathies, supports the thesis that the change in the paravertebral muscle fiber must be the underlying pathogenic[]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Baseline transaminase levels should be measured in all CKD patients prior to starting statin therapy, though routine transaminase for CK levels is not recommended in the absence[] […] of clinical evidence of hepatotoxicity or myopathy.[] Other lipid guidelines have some similarities to KDIGO, but differ on their approach to treating CKD patients.[]

  • Intestinal Pseudo-Obstruction

    All patients have had several trials of promotility agents such as cisapride, erythromycin, metoclopramide, and domperidone.[] […] with CIIP are all thought to have an abnormality of either enteric smooth muscle (visceral myopathy) 5-7 or the intrinsic enteric nervous system (visceral neuropathy). 3 [] Most of these patients have had documented bacterial overgrowth on hydrogen breath testing.[]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    About 25% of all patients with dilated cardiomyopathy have atypical chest pain. Other symptoms depend on which ventricle is affected.[] […] tumors) Symptoms and Signs Onset of dilated cardiomyopathy is usually gradual except in acute myocarditis, acute apical ballooning cardiomyopathy, and tachyarrhythmia-induced myopathy[]

  • Facial Nerve Paralysis of the Newborn

    Disruption sequence in vascular territory of subclavian artery Autopsy studies have supported all of the causes listed above.[] A neurophysiologic study of patients with sporadic Mobius syndrome demonstrated 2 distinct groups characterized by 1) increased facial distal motor latencies (DML) and poor[] […] theories regarding the pathogenesis of Möbius syndrome are as follows: Aplasia or hypoplasia of cranial nerve nuclei Nuclear destruction Peripheral nerve abnormality Primary myopathy[]

  • Pleural Effusion

    They have been classified into three subtypes: polymyositis (PM), dermatomyositis (DM) and inclusion body myositis. 96 All have characteristic proximal muscle weakness, high[] […] muscle enzymes in serum (especially creatine kinase), electromyographic data of myopathy and infiltrates of inflammatory cells in the muscle tissue.[] If the patients have manifestations of rash with varying characteristics, it is classified as dermatomyositis. 97 The lung is the most frequently affected extramuscular organ[]

  • Myositis

    Recently, it has been reported that some patients may have an inflammatory myopathy triggered by the statin.[] Toxic myopathies Statin drugs are a frequent cause of toxic myopathy. Statin myopathy may manifest as myalgia, weakness, elevated muscle enzymes or all three.[]

  • Familial Visceral Myopathy

    As can be seen in table II, which lists all major mitochondrial myopathies, most of these conditions manifest with neurologic symptoms.[] These manifestations have not developed in our patient so far; however, gastrointestinal symptoms occasionally precede in months or years the remaining manifestations of mitochondrial[] The development of muscle weakness in this patient's limbs led to consider a mitochondrial disease.[]

  • Young Adult-Onset Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy

    All of the congenital myopathies have been associated with arthrogryposis, including central core disease, nemaline myopathy, and centronuclear myopathy, as well as congenital[] Considering the differential diagnosis, it is not surprising that muscle pathology varies greatly in arthrogryposis patients.[]

  • Respiratory Muscle Paralysis

    Patients who have only myopathy can find getting a diagnosis extremely difficult, even when they have family members who have been diagnosed with HypoKPP.[] All these varying patterns of weakness can produce an extremely complex clinical picture.[] A patient of 60 years, who has lost perhaps 40% of their muscle function, may have paralytic attacks during which their muscles function at perhaps 10-15% of their remaining[]
