328 Possible Causes for Progressive Dysphagia, Proximal Muscle Weakness

  • Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy

    We report a 64 year old Chinese-Malaysian woman who presented with progressive dysphagia and bilateral ptosis for about 6 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a 70-year-old Italian woman with an adult-onset ptosis, mild dysphagia and proximal muscle weakness belonging to a family segregating OPMD according to an autosomal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] dysphagia and bilateral blepharoptosis rather than peripheral muscular weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diffuse Scleroderma

    […] and acid reflux Associated conditions other autoimmune diseases Prognosis systemic scleroderma is rapidly progressive involvement of pulmonary, renal, or cardiac systems[medbullets.com] The most common source of decreased motility is the esophagus and the lower esophageal sphincter, leading to dysphagia and chest pain.[en.wikipedia.org] Swelling of the skin is usually symmetric and progresses to induration.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    At age 38, progressive dysphagia for solids, and subsequently liquids, ensued.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Progressive proximal muscle weakness began again at age 8 years. Serum CK was 14,910 IU/L. She was wheelchair-bound by age 12.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Moreover, polymyositis (PM) is manifested as symmetrical proximal muscle weakness of the four limbs, accompanied by an increased level of serum CK.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Oculopharyngodistal Myopathy

    Both diseases have autosomal dominant inheritance and OPDM patients are clinically similar to OPMD with slowly progressive ptosis, ophthalmoplegia and dysphagia except that[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and Swelling in the Neck 522 Case 83 A Woman with Muscle Pains and Dark Urine 526 Case 84 A Woman with Progressive Proximal Muscle Weakness 533 Case 85 A Sedentary Man with[books.google.com] […] bilateral ptosis, dysphagia, and limb girdle weakness.[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    Progressive dysphagia is associated with a poorer prognosis and a poorer quality of life.[patient.info] Inclusion body myositis features a slowly progressive inflammatory myopathy characterized by progressive proximal muscle weakness in the lower extremities, followed by proximal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a 17-year-old girl with an unusual neuromuscular disorder characterised by slowly progressive proximal muscle weakness whose muscle biopsy showed multiple ring fibres[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Autosomal Recessive Lower Motor Neuron Disease with Childhood Onset

    […] bulbar involvement causes bulbar symptoms such as dysarthria and dysphagia.[6],[4].[explainmedicine.com] Muscle weakness may spread from the proximal muscles to affect distal muscles.[rarediseases.org] In 4 of the 5 patients having a severe phenotype, symptoms appeared during infancy (2 to 3.5 years), with proximal muscle weakness predominating in the lower limbs and early[pediatricneurologybriefs.com]

  • Polymyositis

    […] slowly Myalgia, dysphagia and dyspnea can be seen Raynaud's is also be seen but is more common in dermatomyositis Diagnosis Clinicopathologic diagnosis Histology shows myopathic[pathologyoutlines.com] From Wikidata Jump to navigation Jump to search rare idiopathic inflammatory myopathy characterized by symmetric proximal muscle weakness and elevated muscle enzymes edit[wikidata.org] Dysphagia and neck flexor weakness can develop along with respiratory muscle weakness as the disease progresses.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dermatomyositis

    Her symptoms progressed, including severe dysphagia, hypophonia and weakness preventing sitting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Later she developed progressive, symmetrical proximal muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Severe disease is characterized by dysphagia, dysphonia, and/or diaphragmatic weakness. Muscle weakness may progress over weeks to months.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Autosomal Recessive Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2T

    An autosomal dominant hereditary disease that presents in late in life and is characterized by dysphagia and progressive ptosis of the eyelids.[icd10data.com] Muscle weakness may spread from the proximal muscles to affect distal muscles.[rarediseases.org] LGMD 2A (calpain 3) Childhood (8-15) There is mainly proximal muscle weakness. There is slow progression.[patient.info]

  • Autosomal Recessive Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2Q

    An autosomal dominant hereditary disease that presents in late in life and is characterized by dysphagia and progressive ptosis of the eyelids.[icd10data.com] Autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy-17 is characterized by early childhood onset of proximal muscle weakness and atrophy without skin involvement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Muscle weakness may spread from the proximal muscles to affect distal muscles.[rarediseases.org]
