25 Possible Causes for Poor Feeding due to Muscle Weakness

  • Congenital Myopathy with Excess of Thin Filaments

    Genetics Home Reference : 25 Actin-accumulation myopathy is a disorder that primarily affects skeletal muscles, which are muscles that the body uses for movement. People with actin-accumulation myopathy have severe muscle weakness (myopathy) and poor muscle tone (hypotonia) throughout the body. Signs and[…][malacards.org]

  • Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    They can also have breathing problems due to weakness of respiratory muscles and an abnormally bell-shaped chest that prevents the lungs from fully expanding.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] Children with this type may have swallowing problems that can lead to difficulty feeding and poor growth.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • X-linked Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    They can also have breathing problems due to weakness of respiratory muscles and an abnormally bell-shaped chest that prevents the lungs from fully expanding.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] Children with this type may have swallowing problems that can lead to difficulty feeding and poor growth.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Autosomal Recessive Centronuclear Myopathy 5

  • Familial Infantile Myasthenia

    We describe three siblings with familial infantile myasthenia gravis (FIMG). Contrary to previous reports suggesting a benign course of FIMG beyond the infantile period, our two patients had severe respiratory exacerbations in early adult life. Thymectomy was performed in the two more affected siblings, with only[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Short Chain Acyl CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency

    […] and usually muscle weakness and hypotonia.[orpha.net] In affected individuals manifestations include seizures, developmental delay (delayed sitting/walking and/or speech/social interaction), failure to grow with poor feeding,[orpha.net] Etiology Symptomatic SCAD deficiency is due to mutations in the acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, C-2 to C-3 short chain ACADS gene (12q24.31) as well as additional as yet unidentified[orpha.net]
