  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Becker muscular dystrophy is an inherited disorder that involves slowly worsening muscle weakness of the legs and pelvis. Becker muscular dystrophy is very similar to Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The main difference is that it gets worse at a much slower rate and it is less common. The disorder is passed down[…][]

  • Graves Disease

    Previous studies indicate pre-existing subclinical Graves' disease in many patients with the scintigraphic diagnosis of toxic multinodular goitre type A, equivalent to the in Germany so-called disseminated thyroid autonomy. Furthermore, after radioiodine treatment an increase or the induction of TSH-receptor antibodies[…][]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    As time goes by, there may be muscle weakness which causes difficulty with running, climbing stairs or walking long distances.[] They have great difficulty in climbing stairs due to weakness of the muscles. The gait is often affected leading to toe-walking gait.[] The symptoms can be mild initially, presenting with a delay in learning to walk, muscle cramps after exercise or generally struggling with sports.[]

  • Myelitis

    BACKGROUND: HHV7 reactivation has been occasionally reported as a cause of encephalitis or myelitis in transplant recipients, but to our knowledge it has never been associated with neurological disease in HIV-infected patients. We report a case of acute myelitis in an HIV-infected patient, with sustained HHV-7 DNA[…][]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    She began to experience proximal muscle weakness of both lower limbs without obvious inducement, which markedly increased when she climbed the stairs or stood up after squatting[] PATIENT CONCERNS: A 25-year-old woman was admitted to our department as the limb weakness progressively worsened.[]

  • Temporal Arteritis

    Giant-cell arteritis (temporal arteritis, cranial arteritis, Horton disease) is an inflammatory disorder of cranial blood vessels, principally the temporal artery. It is characterized by headache, jaw claudication and reduced visual acuity. In individuals with GCA, the most commonly presented conditions include headache,[…][]

  • Polymyositis

    Polymyositis ( PM ) is a type of chronic inflammation of the muscles ( inflammatory myopathy ) related to dermatomyositis and inclusion body myositis.
