26 Possible Causes for Pseudohypertrophy of Calf Muscles, Sloping Shoulders

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    […] muscle weakness causes deformities such as pronounced shoulder blades (scapular winging) and sloping shoulders.[web.archive.org] Pseudohypertrophy of the calf muscles is due to fibrous tissue and fat infiltration. Involvement of the heart consists of usually terminal cardiomyopathy.[icd9data.com] Calf muscles initially enlarge and the enlarged muscle tissue is eventually replaced with fat and connective tissue (pseudohypertrophy).[genome.gov]

  • Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy

    […] level Shoulder muscle weakness causes deformities such as pronounced shoulder blades (scapular winging) and sloping shoulders.[nlm.nih.gov] Pseudohypertrophy of the calf muscles is due to fibrous tissue and fat infiltration. Involvement of the heart consists of usually terminal cardiomyopathy.[icd9data.com] pseudohypertrophy LABS: CPK is usually normal histology: not impressive; most constant finding is isolated small atrophic fibers intermixed with hypertrophic muscle fibers[gait.aidi.udel.edu]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    About Common early signs are a forward sloping of the shoulders as well as difficulty raising the arms over the head and closing the eyes.[oapd.org.br] pseudohypertrophy (see “Pathophysiology”) Contractures in nonaffected regions and scoliosis Inability to walk by approx. 12 years of age Cardiac and respiratory muscle involvement[amboss.com] […] lower limbs, later spreading to the upper body and distal areas Weak reflexes Wadd ling gait (bilateral Trendelenburg's sign ) Gower maneuver (see video in Tips & Links) Calf[amboss.com]

  • Myopathy

    Neurological examinations revealed sloping shoulders, weakness, and atrophy in the proximal areas of the arms, shoulder girdle muscles, and legs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] weakness Pseudohypertrophy of muscles Palpable muscle nodules MacroglossiaPeripheral neuropathy Autonomic involvement Restrictive cardiomyopathy Inherited Myopathies Duchenne[clevelandclinicmeded.com] […] muscular dystrophy 1 in 3500 male births Age of onset Symmetrical proximal girdle weakness Calf psedohypertrophy Ankle contractures Cardiomyopathy Kyphoscoliosis Cognitive[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Oculopharyngodistal Myopathy

    Autosomal Dominant deletion of D4Z4 on 4q35 Describe the symptoms of FSH MD Slow wasting of facial, scapular, humeral and perineal muscles, down sloping shoulders winged scapular[brainscape.com] The calf muscles remain very strong even late in the course of these disorders.[clinicalgate.com] It weakens the sarcolemma and leads to muscle necrosis What are the clinical features of Duchenne's MD? 1. Difficulty running, waddling gait 2. Calf Pseudohypertrophy 3.[brainscape.com]

  • Distal Myopathy Type 3

    In FSHD, due to pectoral atrophy and scapular laxity, the anterior axillary folds point inward, toward the neck, and the shoulders often slope downward.[sites.google.com] Pseudohypertrophy of the calf muscles is due to fibrous tissue and fat infiltration. Involvement of the heart consists of usually terminal cardiomyopathy.[icd9data.com] […] weakness Pseudohypertrophy of muscles Palpable muscle nodules MacroglossiaPeripheral neuropathy Autonomic involvement Restrictive cardiomyopathy Inherited Myopathies Duchenne[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Secondary Myopathy

    In FSHD, due to pectoral atrophy and scapular laxity, the anterior axillary folds point inward, toward the neck, and the shoulders often slope downward.[sites.google.com] […] weakness Pseudohypertrophy of muscles Palpable muscle nodules MacroglossiaPeripheral neuropathy Autonomic involvement Restrictive cardiomyopathy Inherited Myopathies Duchenne[clevelandclinicmeded.com] The droop in the shoulders result in the clavicles to run horizontally or to slope downards. The deltoid is spared, while the biceps and triceps are wasted.[sites.google.com]

  • Polyglucosan Body Myopathy Type 2

The deltoid is spared, while the biceps and triceps are wasted.[sites.google.com]

  • Zebra Body Myopathy

    shoulders Decreased cervical spine flexion due to contractures of posterior cervical muscles Restricted neck movement due to contractures Peroneal muscle atrophy Lipodystrophy[mendelian.co] Other features may include scapular winging, calf pseudohypertrophy, and contractures.[mendelian.co] Obstructive sleep apnea Hyperhidrosis Micrognathia Onset Stridor Feeding difficulties in infancy Neonatal hypotonia Joint laxity Urinary urgency Sleep apnea Protruding ear Down-sloping[mendelian.co]
