  • Scapuloperoneal Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    […] of face muscles Abnormality of limbs Clinodactyly Metatarsus adductus Peroneal muscle atrophy Peroneal muscle weakness Scapular muscle atrophy Small hand Talipes equinovarus[familydiagnosis.com] Abstract Scapuloperoneal (SP) syndromes are heterogeneous neuromuscular disorders which are characterized by weakness in the distribution of shoulder girdle and peroneal muscles[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In SPSMA, the weakness and atrophy tend to occur in the muscles of the shoulders (scapula) and lower legs (peroneal), but muscles of the face and voice box (larynx) may also[diseaseinfosearch.org]

  • Acute Arsenic Poisoning

    Massive acute arsenic poisoning is rare yet potentially life-threatening. 2,3-dimercaptopropane-1-sulphonate (DMPS) appears to have the appropriate chelating property. However, clinical experience on the use of DMPS in massive arsenic poisoning is limited. A 37-year-old woman attempted suicide by ingesting 37.5 g of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuropathy

    Weakness of the hamstring and all muscles below the knee. Common peroneal nerve Caused by trauma or surgery. [ 3, 4 ] Leads to foot drop. Weakness on the everting foot.[patient.info] These steps help to identify weak muscles and the location of altered sensation.[vermontspineworks.com] Types I and II are characterized by weakness and atrophy, primarily in peroneal and distal leg muscles. Patients often have a family history of neuropathy.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    The patient presented with mild facial weakness, humeral poly-hill sign, scapular winging, peroneal weakness, drop foot, pes cavus, and myoclonic epilepsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Weakness of the hamstring and all muscles below the knee. Common peroneal nerve Caused by trauma or surgery. [ 3, 4 ] Leads to foot drop. Weakness on the everting foot.[patient.info] The muscle and nerve biopsy revealed broadly fiber Type II grouping atrophy and myelinated nerve fibers that significantly decreased with thin myelinated fibers and onion[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polyneuropathy

    In peroneal neuropathy muscles that lift the front and outer edges of the foot can become weak, while numbness affects the outer surface of the calf and the top of the foot[cordingleyneurology.com] […] neuropathy Damage to the Motor nerves is commonly seen as muscle weakness but may also produce uncontrolled muscle twitches (fasciculations), painful muscle cramps, muscle[stemcellthailand.org] Because the median and peroneal nerves contain both motor and sensory fibers, people with these conditions can experience both weakness and numbness.[cordingleyneurology.com]

  • Cardiac Arrhythmia

    Various traits: muscular weakness pattern (e.g. preferential peroneal distribution), minor elbow contractures, and arrhythmia were reminiscent of Emery-Dreifuss muscle dystrophy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Talipes Cavus

  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

    […] of the foot. [ 1 ] Anterior tarsal tunnel syndrome refers to compression of the deep peroneal nerve.[patient.info] […] neuropathy of the posterior tibial nerve as it passes in the anatomical tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the medial malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles[patient.info] It is rare and causes pain, weakness, and sensory changes of the foot and ankle. [ 2 ] Distal tarsal tunnel syndrome is caused by compression of the the first branch lateral[patient.info]

  • Entrapment Neuropathy

    This is due to weakness of the ankle evertors, the peroneal muscles which prevent the foot from “turning in”.[neckandback.com] ) Deep Peroneal Nerve Entrapment Diagnosis -*Palpate the course of the deep peroneal nerve -Diminished sensation of the *1st web space may be present -Weakness of the *EDB[quizlet.com] Involvement of the motor fibers in the common peroneal nerve results in weakness of the dorsiflexors and foot drop, but the loss of the motor supply to the tibialis anterior[care.diabetesjournals.org]

  • Median Neuropathy

    Dysfunction of the superficial peroneal nerve results in weakness of foot eversion. Clinically, weakness of these muscles results in a stereotyped set of symptoms.[casemed.case.edu] Involvement of the motor fibers in the common peroneal nerve results in weakness of the dorsiflexors and foot drop, but the loss of the motor supply to the tibialis anterior[care.diabetesjournals.org] Involvement of the deep peroneal nerve leads to weakness of toe and ankle dorsiflexion, resulting in a foot and toe drop .[casemed.case.edu]
