18 Possible Causes for Sternocleidomastoid Muscle Wasting

  • Jugular Foramen Syndrome

    INTRODUCTION: The jugular foramen (Vernet) syndrome with neuropathy of cranial nerves IX-XI is more commonly due to metastatic lesions than primary neoplasms. Hypoglossal nerve involvement is referred to as the Collet Sicard variant of the jugular foramen syndrome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We report an elderly man[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    A primiparous pregnant woman in remission of myositis suffered very acute-onset ritodrine-induced rhabdomyolysis. At 29 gestational weeks, ritodrine was administered for threatened preterm labor. Just 3 h later, she complained of severe limb muscle pain, with serum creatinine phosphokinase elevated to 32 019 U/L[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy

    The homologous 4q and 10q subtelomeric regions include two distinctive polymorphic arrays of 3.3 kb repeats, named D4Z4. An additional BlnI restriction site on the 10q-type sequence allows to distinguish the chromosomal origin of the repeats. Reduction in the number of D4Z4 repeats below a threshold of 10 at the 4q[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hughling-Jackson Syndrome

    Bruce F. Pennington, PhD, is John Evans Professor of Psychology at the University of Denver, where he heads the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience program. His research focuses on dyslexia, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and autism, with particular interests in using genetic and neuropsychological[…][books.google.com]

  • Accessory Nerve Palsy

    He had mild weakness of the left trapezius muscle with no wasting or weakness of the ipsilateral sternocleidomastoid muscle.[neurologyindia.com] muscles, with relative sparing of those innervated by the C5–C6 roots and wasting of the sternocleidomastoids.[cmaj.ca] Simply observing the patient may also reveal signs of muscle wasting in the sternocleidomastoid and trapezius in cases of long-standing nerve damage.[teachmeanatomy.info]

  • Multicore Myopathy

    EMG recordings showed no evidence of recruitment of the wasted neck accessory muscles (sternocleidomastoid and scalene), whereas electromyograph plus mechanics measurements[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In spontaneous breathing while supine, rib-cage diameters decreased while gastric pressure increased in inspiration, suggesting the weak diaphragm was the main muscle of respiration[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Oculopharyngodistal Myopathy

    He has myotonic facies, with bilateral ptosis, wasting of the temporalis, massater and sternocleidomastoid muscles and frontotemporal balding.[evidencereviewed.com] In the limbs, there is distal weakness and wasting, especially of the finger flexors, intrinsic muscles of the hand and ankle dorsiflexors.[evidencereviewed.com]

  • Miyoshi Myopathy

    There was symmetrical wasting of trapezius, sternocleidomastoid, supraspinatus, forearm muscles, hand and leg muscles (distal proximal) with winging of scapula associated[ruralneuropractice.com]

  • Miyoshi Muscular Dystrophy Type 3

    There was symmetrical wasting of trapezius, sternocleidomastoid, supraspinatus, forearm muscles, hand and leg muscles (distal proximal) with winging of scapula associated[ruralneuropractice.com]

  • Lepromatous Leprosy

    muscle in neck Cosmetic importance only Median Antecubital fossa or just proximal to carpal tunnel in wrist Thenar wasting, loss of opposability of thumb, palmar anesthesia[atsu.edu] Posterior tibial Between medial malleolus & heel Clawing of toes, plantar anesthesia Superficial peroneal Winding around neck of fibula Foot drop Greater auricular Crossing sternocleidomastoid[atsu.edu] Damage in Leprosy in Approximate Descending Order of Frequency* NERVE SITE OF ENLARGEMENT MAJOR SEQUELAE Ulnar Elbow & several inches above Clawing of 4th & 5th fingers, wasting[atsu.edu]
