  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 5

    Glycogen storage disease type V (GSD V) is an inherited disorder of glycogen metabolism that affects the skeletal muscle.[] Three patients were wheelchair dependent due to skeletal muscle involvement (signs of permanent muscle weakness with atrophy).[] […] features Pain: Legs Arms Fatigue Cramps: Proximal muscles Muscle size Atrophy: Proportionate to weakness May be mild calf hypertrophy Tendon reflexes: Reduced in proportion[]

  • Autosomal Recessive Centronuclear Myopathy

    muscle weakness.[] […] characterized by muscle weakness (myopathy) and wasting (atrophy) in the skeletal muscles, which are the muscles used for movement.[] Centronuclear Myopathy is a condition in which there is a weakness in the muscles or atrophy of skeletal muscles.[]

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    Hypokalemic periodic paralysis is a condition, characterized by episodic weakness of the skeletal muscle. It may be presented as familial or sporadic (secondary).[]

  • Barth Syndrome

    muscle weakness, or family history indicating an X-linked pattern of inheritance.[] This disease is characterized by cardiac abnormalities, skeletal muscle weakness, recurrent infections due to low white blood cell (immune cell) counts, and delayed growth[] Barth syndrome should be considered when boys present with cardiomyopathy, especially when associated with increased left ventricular trabeculations, neutropenia, skeletal[]

  • Vitamin D Deficiency

    As the Vitamin D Council explains, without the vitamin, our bodies may lose bone tissue, leading to bone pain, muscle weakness and possible skeletal deformity.[] […] signs and symptoms of osteomalacia (bone pain and tenderness, proximal muscle weakness reported as difficulty in rising from a sitting position).[] We present a case of a 30-year-old woman presented with muscle weakness, weight loss, hypercalcaemia and a pathological fracture, eventually with rapidly progressive musculoskeletal[]

  • Hypersensitivity

    In myasthenia gravis, for example, antibodies are produced that bind to and inactivate the acetylcholine receptors on skeletal muscle.[] Muscles become weak and easy to fatigue.[]

  • Polymyositis

    DEFINITION Polymyositis is an idiopathic inflamatory myopathy that causes symmetrical proximal muscle weakness, elevated skeletal muscle enzyme levels,characteristic electromyograhic[] The inflammatory myopathies represent the largest group of acquired and potentially treatable causes of skeletal muscle weakness.[] Both manifest with proximal skeletal muscle weakness, though DM has associated cutaneous findings.[]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is an X-linked recessive disorder affecting 1 in 3,500 males, characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness and death secondary to[] Several important methods have been considered standard-in-the-field for analyses of skeletal muscle weakness, strength, endurance, and histopathology, as well as responses[] Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is an X-linked recessive disorder, characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness, loss of ambulation, and death secondary to cardiac[]
