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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[acc.org] […] of clinical evidence of hepatotoxicity or myopathy.[acc.org] Other lipid guidelines have some similarities to KDIGO, but differ on their approach to treating CKD patients.[acc.org]

  • Intestinal Pseudo-Obstruction

    All patients have had several trials of promotility agents such as cisapride, erythromycin, metoclopramide, and domperidone.[gut.bmj.com] […] 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 [gut.bmj.com] Most of these patients have had documented bacterial overgrowth on hydrogen breath testing.[gut.bmj.com]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

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

  • Facial Nerve Paralysis of the Newborn

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

  • 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[archbronconeumol.org] […] muscle enzymes in serum (especially creatine kinase), electromyographic data of myopathy and infiltrates of inflammatory cells in the muscle tissue.[archbronconeumol.org] 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[archbronconeumol.org]

  • Myositis

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

  • Familial Visceral Myopathy

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

  • 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[clinicalgate.com] Considering the differential diagnosis, it is not surprising that muscle pathology varies greatly in arthrogryposis patients.[clinicalgate.com]

  • 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.[hkpp.org] All these varying patterns of weakness can produce an extremely complex clinical picture.[hkpp.org] 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[hkpp.org]
