95 Possible Causes for Weakness of Orbicularis Oculi Muscles

  • Myopathy and Diabetes mellitus

    […] of orbicularis oculi muscles Muscle Soft Tissue: proximal muscle weakness hypotonia emg shows myopathic changes proximal muscle wasting myopathy, proximal more Head And Neck[malacards.org] System: dysarthria hyporeflexia delayed motor development cerebellar ataxia intellectual delay Laboratory Abnormalities: increased serum creatine kinase Head And Neck Eyes: weakness[malacards.org]

  • Blepharospasm

    Our findings are in agreement with an animal model of blepharospasm that suggests a combined role of weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscle and a dysfunction of the dopaminergic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] muscle without muscular weakness or atrophy.[aimu.us] Blepharospasm may be differentiated from conditions like: Ocular myokymia: Ocular myokymia is characterised by spontaneous, fine fascicular contractions of orbicularis oculi[aimu.us]

  • Ectropion

    Various causes: Involutional (age-related degeneration) Most common horizontal lid laxity weakness of pretarsal part of orbicularis oculi muscle weakness of medial and lateral[college-optometrists.org]

  • Blepharoptosis

    For patients with weak eyelid excursion (2 to 4 mm), the interdigitated orbicularis oculi-frontalis muscle flap was the procedure of choice.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When the eyelid excursion was moderate ( 4 mm), the orbicularis oculi muscle flap was used.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When eyelid excursion is moderate (3 to 5 mm), the orbicularis oculi muscle flap technique was effective.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bell's Palsy

    Our findings are in agreement with an animal model of blepharospasm that suggests a combined role of weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscle and a dysfunction of the dopaminergic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscle and resulting incomplete eye closure may be associated with corneal injury.[fpnotebook.com]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Here we described a 32-year-old woman with progressive weakness of hand muscles associated with weakness of orbicularis oculi muscles and fasciculations of tongue.[marmaramedicaljournal.org] On neurological examination orbicularis oculi muscles were bilaterally weak and there were fasciculations on her tongue.[marmaramedicaljournal.org] We found a moderate neurogenic involvement of orbicularis oculi, sternocleidomastoid and lingual muscles.[marmaramedicaljournal.org]

  • Chronic Progressive External Ophthalmoplegia

    Occurring alongside CPEO [ edit ] Weakness of extraocular muscle groups including, the orbicularis oculi muscle as well as facial and limb muscles may be present in up to[en.wikipedia.org] Patients with myasthenic ptosis will also frequently have orbicularis oculi muscle weakness that may manifest as lagophthalmos. Testing for MG varies between centers.[reviewofophthalmology.com] Ptosis associated with CPEO may be corrected with surgery to raise the lids, [12] however due to weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscles, care must be taken not to raise[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Proximal muscle involvement leads to ptosis, strabismus, weakness of the orbicularis oculi, and sometimes ophthalmoplegia.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Such muscle weakness may lead to exposure keratitis. As many as 25% of patients with DM have a pigmentary retinopathy, usually in a butterfly pattern.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]

  • Autosomal Dominant Progressive External Ophthalmoplegia

    Occurring alongside CPEO [ edit ] Weakness of extraocular muscle groups including, the orbicularis oculi muscle as well as facial and limb muscles may be present in up to[en.wikipedia.org] Ptosis associated with CPEO may be corrected with surgery to raise the lids, [12] however due to weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscles, care must be taken not to raise[en.wikipedia.org] As a result of the orbicularis oculi weakness, patients may suffer from exposure keratopathy (damage to cornea) from the inability to close the eyes tightly.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Weakness of Orbicularis Oculi Muscles

    weakness Weakness of muscles of respiration Weakness of orbicularis oculi muscle Reduced strength of the orbicularis oculi, the circumorbital muscle in the face that closes[rgd.mcw.edu] Such injury may be responsible for orbicularis oculi muscle weakness manifesting as postoperative abnormal eyelid closure and lagophthalmos.[centerforfacialappearances.com] Weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscle and resulting incomplete eye closure may be associated with corneal injury.[profiles.umassmed.edu]
