202 Possible Causes for Reduced Fetal Movement

  • Antenatal Onset Minicore Myopathy with Arthrogryposis

    The antenatal form with arthrogryposis is distinguished by the presence of contractures at birth due to reduced fetal movement as well as various physical anomalies.[checkorphan.org] Two patients from 1 family exhibited prenatal symptoms with reduced fetal movements, polyhydramnios, and hydrops.[bio2rdf.org] Clinical description Presentation of MmD is usually in infancy or childhood with hypotonia or proximal weakness; prenatal onset with reduced fetal movements and polyhydramnios[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]

  • Fetal Distress in Labor 

    Signs and symptoms of fetal distress include: Reduced fetal movement or lack of movement altogether Meconium (fetal feces) in amniotic fluid Decreased heart rate A significant[birthinjuryinfo.org] Signs and Symptoms of Fetal distress: Either in pregnancy, which would be picked up through reduced fetal movements (kicks) Or in labour, when it would usually be detected[kiwifamilies.co.nz] Reduced fetal movements. Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Green-top guideline, 57. RCOG. 2012. Information for you: your baby's movements in pregnancy.[babycenter.in]

  • Lethal Congenital Contracture Syndrome 6

    Drugs, including phenytoin and alcohol, can impair fetal movements. Oligohydramnios reduces fetal movements. A septate uterus or large fibroids can do the same.[patient.info] Polyhydramnios with reduced fetal movements is followed by premature delivery at around 31 weeks gestation.[thedoctorsdoctor.com] The basic cause is fetal akinesia (reduced fetal movements). The underlying cause can be environmental (lack of ability to move) or genetic (single gene conditions).[patient.info]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    We present a male patient with SMAX2 who presented with typical symptoms at birth, preceded by reduced fetal movements in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here we report a male infant who presented from birth with predominantly truncal hypotonia following an antenatal history of reduced fetal movements.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There may be a history of reduced fetal movements in utero. Mortality/morbidity : median survival is 7 months - 95% die before 18 months.[patient.info]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy with Respiratory Distress Type 1

    Antenatally, the mother, noticed reduced fetal movements in the last 2 weeks of gestation, and there was polyhydramnios on antenatal scans.[avicennajmed.com] There may be a history of reduced fetal movements in utero. Mortality/morbidity : median survival is 7 months - 95% die before 18 months.[patient.info] fetal movements in utero and significant respiratory distress at birth.[avicennajmed.com]

  • Infantile Restrictive Dermopathy

    Polyhydramnios with reduced fetal movements is followed by premature delivery at around 31 weeks gestation.[thedoctorsdoctor.com] Prenatal signs can include intrauterine growth retardation, reduced fetal movements, polyhydramnios, and premature rupture of the membranes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This causes an intrauterine fetal akinesia deformation sequence (FADS) resulting in polyhydramnios, reduced fetal movements at around 31 weeks gestation, dysmorphic facies[thedoctorsdoctor.com]

  • Autosomal Dominant Benign Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    There may be a history of reduced fetal movements in utero. Mortality/morbidity : median survival is 7 months - 95% die before 18 months.[patient.info]

  • Miller Dieker Syndrome

    History of polyhydramnios, intrauterine growth retardation and reduced fetal movements are associated with MDS.[ijcasereportsandimages.com]

  • Congenital Merosin-Positive Muscular Dystrophy

    Onset is often at birth with congenital proximal contractures and arthrogryposis caused by reduced fetal movements, hypotonia, and early hyperlaxity of distal joints (Figure[academlib.com]

  • Prader-Willi Syndrome

    In fetal life: Reduced fetal movements and abnormal position Polyhydramnios Requirement for caesarean section In neonates and children: Feeding difficulties (poor suckling[symptoma.com] It is characterized by reduced fetal activity, mental retardation, hypotonia, short stature, and hypogonadism A syndrome characterized at birth by the lack of spontaneous[icd9data.com] Mothers with prior experience of normal pregnancies report distinctly delayed onset of labour and reduced fetal activity during the pregnancies involving Prader-Willi children[britannica.com]
