108 Possible Causes for Ossification of the Falx Cerebri, Percussion Myotonia

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Percussion myotonia or myotonia of grasp or both is usually present if looked for.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Prominence of the frontal sinus, craniokyphosis (small basal angle), and ossification of the falx cerebri are other described features.[ajnr.org] The less common clinical syndromes, which include the two possible cases of myotonic dystrophy, are: (2) almost pure myotonia, symptomatic from early infancy (one case) or[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

  • Paramyotonia Congenita

    They experience neither grip nor percussion myotonia during warm weather, whereas myotonia is provoked by cold. Her younger son has no symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Also of diagnostic importance are the myotonic reactions inducible at room temperature, such as percussion myotonia, active myotonia and paradoxical myotonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Percussion myotonia of the tongue and thenar muscles could be elicited at room temperature. Myotonia was aggravated by cold.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Generalized Myotonia of Thomsen

    On examination he showed percussion myotonia. There was no grip myotonia or eyelid myotonia. Nerve conduction studies were normal.[jnnp.bmj.com] Secondary outcomes: (1) clinical relaxation time; (2) electromyographic relaxation time; (3) stair test; (4) presence of percussion myotonia; and (5) adverse events.[cochrane.org] Proband shows percussion myotonia of the tongue.[indianpediatrics.net]

  • Myotonia Congenita

    The diagnosis were based upon family history, clinical findings of percussion myotonia, had grip myotania, prominent muscular hypertrophy and confirmed by electromyographic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Distribution/anatomy Time course Onset/age Myotonia is usually mild, approximately 50% may have percussion myotonia.[rrnursingschool.biz] On examination he showed percussion myotonia. There was no grip myotonia or eyelid myotonia. Nerve conduction studies were normal.[jnnp.bmj.com]

    Muscle weakness, Percussion-induced myotonia Other features N/A Terato- zoospermia Short stature, Hypocalcemia, Vitamin D resistance Low bone density for age, distal metaphyseal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Schwartz-Jampel Syndrome

    Further investigation showed some typical facial features of the syndrome, percussion myotonia and abnormal EMG pattern characterized by continuous muscle activity at rest[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He had diffuse muscular hypertrophy and stiffness with eyelid myotonia, tongue myotonia, percussion myotonia at thenar eminence [Figure 2] and forearm muscles.[amhsjournal.org]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Myotonia (prolonged muscle contraction) occurs spontaneously or is elicited by voluntary activity or by mild stimulation, such as tapping on a muscle (percussion myotonia)[neuropathology-web.org] […] typically elicited by percussion of the thenar eminence with a tendon hammer—‘percussion myotonia’.[doi.org] Handgrip myotonia and strength may improve with repeated contractions—‘warm up phenomenon’. 28 The warm up phenomenon can also improve speech production. 29 Myotonia can be[doi.org]

  • Bilateral Leg Weakness

    Inflammation of muscles produces irritability of the muscles which is sometimes visible with gentle percussion- Marked contractions of muscles after percussion, myotonia,[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu]

  • Basal Cell Carcinoma

    Calcification of the falx cerebri is another manifestation. 10, 24 Palmoplantar pits typically 1–3 mm in depth and 2–3 mm in diameter appear during the second decade of life[nature.com] […] former showing a similar eosinophilic internal cuticle as is seen in steatocystomas. 28 Also present are skeletal anomalies including spinal and rib deformities, excessive ossification[nature.com]

  • Infantile Convulsions and Choreoathetosis

    Never-re cautiously noted the lack of long-lastingtractions during the attacks as well as thesigns of percussion myotonia, which leadosis of an atypical case.dden choreoathetosis[documents.tips]
