Persistent flexure or contracture of a joint.
A congenital condition where the greater portions of the cerebral hemispheres and CORPUS STRIATUM are replaced by CSF and glial tissue. The meninges and the skull are well formed, which is consistent with earlier normal embryogenesis of the telencephalon. Bilateral occlusions of the internal carotid arteries in utero is a potential mechanism. Clinical features include intact brainstem reflexes without evidence of higher cortical activity.

Whence the arthrogrypotics? (1/125)

During the course of a nation-wide survey of patients with bone and joint deformities, twenty-six individuals with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, in the narrow and precise sense of the term, were investigated. No patient was more than twenty-four years of age. However, on a basis of the figures of population, it can be estimated that 21-0 +/- 6-5 older affected individuals should have been encountered. Furthermore, there was a relative excess of younger children. The series was reasonably unbiased, and as arthrogryposis is non-lethal the deficiency of affected adults is an anomalous finding. It is tentatively suggested that arthrogryposis might result from the intra-uterine influence of an unknown environmental agent which has been present in South Africa for only a limited period of time. Detection of this factor could be an important step in the prevention of the disease.  (+info)

Plasma from human mothers of fetuses with severe arthrogryposis multiplex congenita causes deformities in mice. (2/125)

Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC) is characterized by fixed joint contractures and other deformities, sometimes resulting in fetal death. The cause is unknown in most cases, but some women with fetuses affected by severe AMC have serum antibodies that inhibit fetal acetylcholine receptor (AChR) function, and antibodies to fetal antigens might play a pathogenic role in other congenital disorders. To investigate this possibility, we have established a model by injecting pregnant mice with plasma from four anti-AChR antibody-positive women whose fetuses had severe AMC. We found that human antibodies can be transferred efficiently to the mouse fetus during the last few days of fetal life. Many of the fetuses of dams injected with AMC maternal plasmas or Ig were stillborn and showed fixed joints and other deformities. Moreover, similar changes were found in mice after injection of a serum from one anti-AChR antibody-negative mother who had had four AMC fetuses. Thus, we have confirmed the role of maternal antibodies in cases of AMC associated with maternal anti-AChR, and we have demonstrated the existence of pathogenic maternal factors in one other case. Importantly, this approach can be used to look at the effects of other maternal human antibodies on development of the fetus.  (+info)

Combined cuboid/cuneiform osteotomy for correction of residual adductus deformity in idiopathic and secondary club feet. (3/125)

We used a combined cuboid/cuneiform osteotomy to treat residual adductus deformity in idiopathic and secondary club feet. The mean follow-up for 27 feet (22 idiopathic, four arthrogrypotic and one related to amniotic band syndrome) was 5.0 years (2.0 to 9.8). All healed uneventfully except for one early wound infection. No further surgery was required in the 22 idiopathic club feet but four of five with secondary deformity needed further surgery. At follow-up all patients with idiopathic and two with secondary club feet were free from pain and satisfied with the result. In the idiopathic feet, adductus of the forefoot, as measured by the calcaneal second metatarsal angle, improved on average from 20.7 +/- 2.0 degrees to 8.9 +/- 1.8 degrees (p < 0.05). In four feet, with a follow-up of more than six years, there was complete recurrence of the deformity. In the secondary club feet, there was no improvement of the adductus. We conclude that in most, but not all, idiopathic club feet a cuboid/cuneiform osteotomy can provide satisfactory correction of adductus deformity. Those with secondary deformity require other procedures.  (+info)

Prenatal diagnosis of the cerebro-oculo-facio-skeletal (COFS) syndrome. (4/125)

BACKGROUND: The Cerebro-Ocular-Facio-Skeletal (COFS) syndrome is an autosomal recessive condition characterized by neurogenic arthrogryposis, severe facial anomalies and brain maldevelopment. We describe here the first case of prenatal diagnosis of this syndrome in a 21-week fetus. CASE: The woman was referred to our unit on suspicion of fetal microphthalmia. On trans-abdominal ultrasound, severe bilateral microphthalmia was confirmed. Micrognathia, multiple joint contractures and rockerbottom feet were also detected. On the basis of these findings, the diagnosis of COFS syndrome was hypothesized. After termination of pregnancy, necropsy confirmed all prenatal findings. Histology showed severe architectural derangement of the eye and brain together with cerebellar anomalies compatible with the diagnosis of COFS syndrome. CONCLUSIONS: To the best of our knowledge, this represents the first case of prenatal diagnosis of COFS syndrome. This case demonstrates the feasibility of such a diagnosis by ultrasound and identifies the malformations already present and detectable at mid-gestation.  (+info)

Detection of Akabane viral antigens in spontaneous lymphohistiocytic encephalomyelitis in cattle. (5/125)

A 5-month-old Japanese black bull calf and twenty-seven 1-27-day-old calves exhibiting neurological signs between August and October 1998 were examined. The bull calf exhibited rapid breathing, fever, hypersensitivity, and ataxia and was euthanized 4 days after the onset of symptoms. The 27 calves primarily exhibited ataxia, and 15 had arthrogryposis. Histological examination of the bull calf revealed perivascular infiltraction by mononuclear cells, diffuse to multifocal gliosis, and neuronal necrosis in the brain and spinal cord. Multiple malacic foci were found in the midbrain in 5 cases. In contrast, in the 15 calves necropsied in October, there were fewer inflammatory changes, but there was neuronal cell loss in the ventral horn and a decrease in myelinated axons in the lateral and ventral funiculi. Immunohistochemical examination using a rabbit antiserum against Akabane virus strain OBE-1 revealed a large amount of viral antigen in the degenerating neurons and glial cells of the bull calf, mainly in the spinal gray matter. Small amounts of viral antigen in swollen axons and a few glial cells were found in 5 of 27 calves. Thirteen of the 27 calves had high neutralization antibody titers against the Akabane virus, whereas there was no significant antibody titer in most of the calves necropsied during August. The present study revealed that viral antigen detection was very useful for the diagnosis of Akabane diseases in the 5-month-old bull calf that was suspected to be infected postnatally, while it had limited usefulness in the other young calves.  (+info)

Pena-Shokeir phenotype with variable onset in three consecutive pregnancies. (6/125)

The Pena-Shokeir phenotype represents an autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by neurogenic arthrogryposis, facial anomalies and pulmonary hypoplasia. Prenatal diagnosis of this disease has been reported prospectively and in cases with positive family history. We describe here a patient who has had three consecutive pregnancies affected by the Pena-Shokeir syndrome. In these pregnancies, the onset of the arthrogryposis varied between the 12th and the 18th week of gestation. Therefore, the possibility of a variable chronological development of the main diagnostic feature of the syndrome, arthrogryposis, has to be taken into proper consideration while counseling families with a positive history for the Pena-Shokeir phenotype.  (+info)

Acetylcholine receptor delta subunit mutations underlie a fast-channel myasthenic syndrome and arthrogryposis multiplex congenita. (7/125)

Limitation of movement during fetal development may lead to multiple joint contractures in the neonate, termed arthrogryposis multiplex congenita. Neuromuscular disorders are among the many different causes of reduced fetal movement. Many congenital myasthenic syndromes (CMSs) are due to mutations of the adult-specific epsilon subunit of the acetylcholine receptor (AChR), and, thus, functional deficits do not arise until late in gestation. However, an earlier effect on the fetus might be predicted with some defects of other AChR subunits. We studied a child who presented at birth with joint contractures and was subsequently found to have a CMS. Mutational screening revealed heteroallelic mutation within the AChR delta subunit gene, delta 756ins2 and delta E59K. Expression studies demonstrate that delta 756ins2 is a null mutation. By contrast, both fetal and adult AChR containing delta E59K have shorter than normal channel activations that predict fast decay of endplate currents. Thus, delta E59K causes dysfunction of fetal as well as the adult AChR and would explain the presence of joint contractures on the basis of reduced fetal movement. This is the first report of the association of AChR gene mutations with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita. It is probable that mutations that severely disrupt function of fetal AChR will underlie additional cases.  (+info)

The treatment of recurrent arthrogrypotic club foot in children by the Ilizarov method. A preliminary report. (8/125)

Between 1994 and 1997 we used the Ilizarov apparatus to treat 12 recurrent arthrogrypotic club feet in nine patients with a mean age of 5.3 years (3.2 to 7). After a mean of three weeks (two to seven) for correction of the deformity and 1.5 weeks (one to four) for stabilisation in the apparatus, immobilisation in a cast was carried out for a mean of 14 weeks (7 to 24). The mean follow-up period was 35 months (27 to 57). Before operation there were one grade-II (moderate), eight grade-III (severe) and three grade-IV (very severe) club feet, according to the rating system of Dimeglio et al. After operation, all the club feet except one were grade I (benign) with a painless, plantigrade platform. Radiological assessment and functional evaluation confirmed significant improvement. Two complications occurred in one patient, namely, epiphysiolysis of the distal tibia and recurrence of the foot deformity. These results suggest that our proposed modification of the Ilizarov technique is effective in the management of recurrent arthrogrypotic club foot in young children.  (+info)

Arthrogryposis (myodystrophia fetalis congenita, dysplasia myoosteoarticularis, amyoplasia congenita) is a congenital locomotor muscles disease, represented by joint contractures.
Pathogenic variants in the GLE1 gene cause two related disorders, known as lethal congenital contracture syndrome 1 and lethal arthrogryposis with anterior horn cell disease. Lethal congenital contracture syndrome 1 is a fatal form of arthrogryposis, a disorder characterized by non-progressive joint contractures that are present at birth. The spinal cord is thin and the skeletal muscles are extremely small and underdeveloped. Fetuses affected by this disorder die before birth. Lethal arthrogryposis with anterior horn cell disease presents at birth with multiple joint contractures and facial anomalies. Anterior horn motor neurons, which control movement of the trunk and head, are degenerated. Death occurs in the first days of life. Specific GLE1 variants have been associated with the two diseases, and therefore the phenotype may be predicted in most patients based on the genetic variants inherited. ...
Arthrogryposis, which is also called arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC), is not a specific diagnosis. Instead, it describes contractures (shortening and hardening of muscles, tendons or other tissue) of multiple joints that can be caused by a variety of disorders. A contracture results in decreased range of motion in a joint so that it cant by fully bent or extended.. Conditions that lead to arthrogryposis often begin when the unborn child doesnt move enough inside the mothers uterus. This can happen for many reasons, such as if the level of amniotic fluid is low, if there are problems with the babys muscles or nervous system and for other reasons. With arthrogryposis, these contractures are present at birth and involve multiple joints. There are more than 300 conditions that can result in arthrogryposis, and they fall into the following general categories:. ...

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (amc) refers to the development of multiple joint contractures affecting two or more areas of the body prior to birth. a contracture occurs when a joint becomes permanently fixed in a bent or straightened position, which can impact the function and range of motion of the joint and may lead to muscle atrophy. amc is not a specific diagnosis, but rather a physical symptom that can be associated with many different medical conditions. it is suspected that amc is related to decreased fetal movement during development which can have a variety of different causes, including environmental factors (i.e. maternal illness, limited space), single gene changes (autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, x-linked), chromosomal abnormalities and various syndromes. treatment varies based on the signs and symptoms found in each person, but may include physical therapy, removable splints, exercise, and/or surgery. last updated: 1/12/2015 ...
Bruck syndrome is characterized as the combination of arthrogryposis multiplex congenita and osteogenesis imperfecta. Both diseases are uncommon, but concurrence is extremely rare which makes Bruck syndrome very difficult to research. Bruck syndrome is thought to be an atypical variant of osteogenesis imperfecta most resembling type III, if not its own disease. Multiple gene mutations associated with osteogenesis imperfecta are not seen in Bruck syndrome. Many affected individuals are within the same family, and pedigree data supports that the disease is acquired through autosomal recessive inheritance. Bruck syndrome has features of congenital contractures, bone fragility, recurring bone fractures, flexion joint and limb deformities, pterygia, short body height, and progressive kyphoscoliosis. Individuals encounter restricted mobility and pulmonary function. A reduction in bone mineral content and larger hydroxyapatite crystals are also detectable Joint contractures are primarily bilateral and ...
Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita with renal and hepatic abnormalities, demonstrated at autopsy in a two month old child of consanguineous parents, is reported from the Pediatric Hospital, Coimbra, Portugal. Three brothers and eight first cousins had died within the first month, all with jaundice. The brothers of the proband had limb abnormalities and one had polyuria, glucosuria, and metabolic acidosis. The patient was born with flexed knees and joint limitation, cubital deviation of the hands with clenched fingers, and muscular atrophy. During the second week of life the infant became jaundiced and on day 18 she was admitted with cholestatic jaundice and hepatomegaly. Electromyography and muscle biopsy were compatible with neuropathic muscular atrophy. There was hypercalcemia with increased density of the base of the skull, renal tubular degeneration, and biliary stasis with pigmentary deposits. The family pedigree suggested an autosomal recessive inheritance. [1]. ...
Lethal congenital contracture syndrome 1 (LCCS1), also called Multiple contracture syndrome, Finnish type, is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder characterized by total immobility of a fetus, detectable at around the 13th week of pregnancy. LCCS1 invariably leads to prenatal death before the 32nd gestational week. LCCS1 is one of 40 Finnish heritage diseases. It was first described in 1985 and since then, approximately 70 cases have been diagnosed. LCCS1 is characterized by total lack of the movements of the fetus, and is detectable at 13th week of pregnancy. It is accompanied by oedema, small chin, small lungs, crooked joints and occasional skin webs of the neck and elbows. The fetus has characteristic pattern of malpositions recognizable even in severely macerated fetuses with club feet and hyperextension of the knees but the elbows and wrists showing flexion contractures. Neuropathological analysis shows lack of anterior horn motoneurons and severe atrophy of the ventral spinal cord. The ...

The lethal congenital contracture syndrome (LCCS, Herva disease) is an autosomal recessive syndrome that causes prenatal death of affected fetuses before the 32nd gestational week. Prenatal diagnosis is based on fetal akinesia, which is detectable in ultrasonography after the 14th gestational week. The akinesia develops due to degenaration of anterior horn motor neurons, which leads to multiple contractures of the joints. The other key features are slow growth, hydrops in early pregnancy and dysmorphic features.

Acetylcholine receptor (AChR) antibodies are present in around 85% of patients with myasthenia gravis (MG) as measured by the conventional radioimmunoprecipitation assay. Antibodies that block the fetal form of the AChR are occasionally present in mothers who develop MG after pregnancy, especially in those whose babies are born with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita. The antibodies cross the placenta and block neuromuscular transmission, leading to joint deformities and often stillbirth. In these mothers, antibodies made in the thymus are mainly specific for fetal AChR and show restricted germline origins, suggesting a highly mutated clonal response; subsequent spread to involve adult AChR could explain development of maternal MG in those cases who first present after pregnancy. In the 15% of seronegative MG patients without AChR antibodies (SNMG), there are serum factors that increase AChR phosphorylation and reduce AChR function, probably acting via a different membrane receptor. These factors are

Among the causes of these deaths were obstructed and prolonged labour which could be prevented by cost effective and affordable health interventions like the use of the partograph. Despite their common occurrence, keloids remain one of the most challenging dermatologic conditions to successfully treat. It has long been known that malT is under catabolite repression and thus under the control of the cAMP/CAP complex.. This pilot study aimed at further exploration of the prevalence of PCF among hospice and palliative care nurses, as well as the nature of its effects and any coping strategies that nurses adopt. When 51 patients with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita followed an average of 12 years were reviewed, talipes equinovarus was the most common foot and ankle deformity. In addition, improvements in WCST performance over an extended period of time in both those with and those without already existing cognitive flexibility deficits indicate potential practice effects.

Distal arthrogryposis (DA) constitutes a frequent but heterogeneous subgroup among multiple congenital contractures (MCC). Despite its frequency only a limited number of genes have been associated with rare but well characterized types of DA, implicating almost exclusively genes of the contractile apparatus. Our aim was to identify new genes associated with DA. We therefore performed a SNP array based homozygosity mapping approach in two consanguineous African families presenting with an unclassified DA phenotype. We further screened potential candidate genes in 18 familial or sporadic cases with DA that did not show mutations in known genes associated with DA. Combined multipoint linkage analysis of the two families revealed an overlapping locus at 2q37 of 5.7 Mb with a LOD score Zmax = 5.1 at = 0.0 and harboring 77 annotated genes. We excluded pathogenic mutations in the genes encoding the gamma (CHRNG) and delta (CHRND) subunits of the acetylcholine receptor at the neuromuscular junction ...
This new interpretation of the LCCS1 pathophysiology also uncovers important links between critical developmental events and specific steps in the molecular regulation of gene expression. Gle1 is essential for mRNA export (Kendirgi et al., 2003; Murphy and Wente, 1996; Watkins et al., 1998) and also regulates translation (Bolger et al., 2008). In highly proliferative cells, Gle1 roles in mRNA export and translation could be crucial to support a high rate of protein synthesis. During mRNA export at nuclear pore complexes (NPCs), Gle1 binds inositol hexakisphosphate (IP6) and the Gle1-IP6 complex facilitates ATP loading and activation of Dbp5 (Alcazar-Roman et al., 2006; Noble et al., 2011; Weirich et al., 2006). Dbp5 is an essential RNA-dependent ATPase of the DEAD-box protein family (Schmitt et al., 1999; Snay-Hodge et al., 1998; Tseng et al., 1998).

Autosomal dominant torsion dystonia-1 is a disease with incomplete penetrance most often caused by an in-frame GAG deletion (p.Glu303del) in the endoplasmic reticulum luminal protein torsinA encoded by TOR1A.. We report an association of the homozygous dominant disease-causing TOR1A p.Glu303del mutation, and a novel homozygous missense variant (p.Gly318Ser) with a severe arthrogryposis phenotype with developmental delay, strabismus and tremor in three unrelated Iranian families. All parents who were carriers of the TOR1A variant showed no evidence of neurological symptoms or signs, indicating decreased penetrance similar to families with autosomal dominant torsion dystonia-1. The results from cell assays demonstrate that the p.Gly318Ser substitution causes a redistribution of torsinA from the endoplasmic reticulum to the nuclear envelope, similar to the hallmark of the p.Glu303del mutation.. Our study highlights that TOR1A mutations should be considered in patients with severe arthrogryposis and ...
In Arthrogryposis, some of the joints of the child do not move as fluently as the other more normal joints as if they are stuck in a position. Know the causes, symptoms, treatment and diagnosis of Arthrogryposis.
Therapy helps kids do the most they can as they grow. Your care team will give you exercises to do with your child at home. It takes time for a childs abilities to improve. Be patient and offer your support to older kids. Parents play a big part in the treatment of arthrogryposis.. Many kids can do things on their own and grow up to be independent. Others need more help. Even when arthrogryposis limits physical abilities, kids usually can think and learn just as well as other kids do. ...

Disease name: Freeman-Burian syndrome ICD 10: Q87.0 Synonyms: Freeman-Sheldon syndrome, Whistling face syndrome, distal arthrogryposis type 2A, craniocarpotarsal dystrophy, craniocarpotarsal dysplasia, cranio-facio-corporal syndrome Citable version for download in the Journal A&I www.ai-online.info: DOI: 10.19224/ai2019.s008
From 1973, when the first report of ARC syndrome was given by Lutz-Richner and Landolt (5), this fatal disease was reported elsewhere in the world. It seems that Arthrogryposis is caused by neurogenic muscular atrophy and has different manifestations, including talipes equinovarus, talipes calcaneovalgus, radial deviation of the wrists, limb contraction, limb clubfeet, and buttock displacement (6). Renal tubular function disorder occurs in the first few days of life and sometimes two to three months later. It can also be diagnosed as renal tubular acidosis and symptoms of Fanconi syndrome, including glycosuria, proteinuria, aminoaciduria, phosphaturia, and bicarbonate wasting. Renal ultrasound is sometimes shown by nephrocalcinosis (3, 7, 8).. Direct hyperbilirubinemia with normal or elevated levels of transaminases is a feature of the ARC syndrome. On the other hand, in contrast to high bilirubin and alkaline phosphatase (ALP), they have normal levels of GGT enzyme (9, 10). Neurological ...
Freeman-Sheldon syndromeDefinitionFreeman-Sheldon syndrome (FSS) is a very rare genetic disorder characterized by a small, puckered mouth, which gives the appearance of a person whistling. For this reason, Freeman-Sheldon syndrome is also known as whistling face syndrome. FSS may also be referred to as windmill vane hand syndrome or craniocarpotarsal dystrophy.

Discussion. Carpal coalitions are relatively common entities, and in the bibliography their incidence is said to vary from 0.1% to 9%, and they are more frequent in individuals of black races.1-4 They may be associated with syndromes such as multiple congenital arthrogryposis, foetal alcohol syndrome or Turners syndrome,1,2 among others. In these cases coalitions may occur between more than 2 carpal bones. Cases associated with other bone malformations have been described, such as Madelungs disease or proximal radiocubital synostosis, although in the majority of cases it occurs without any association to other complaints.. The most widely accepted aetiology for the origin of the abnormality is a fault in differentiation during weeks 4-8 of pregnancy,1,2 giving rise to incomplete separation of the cartilaginous precursors. Most authors agree that the term fusion should be abolished from the attempt to explain the origin of this complaint, given that it may only be used in acquired cases. In ...
These were the words of my first knee specialist doctor.. I was diagnosed with patella baja and infrapatellar contracture syndrome in July of 2001. This came 11 mos after my horseback riding accident, where I broke my tibia and fibula in 4 places. I developed arthrofibrosis of my knee, after the nailing procedure thru my knee, to repair the tibia fractures.. I was referred to a knee specialist in my town, by the OS who performed a tibia/fibula derotational osteotomy, to correct a malunion of the tibia. I had continuing problems with my knee from the surgery in the form of flexion and extension deficits, swelling, pain, heat, very tight patella and subluxation. I had a series of xrays taken by this knee specialists office. When the doctor came in, he immediately informed me, I had patella baja. He proceeded to show me, on the xrays, how low my patella was sitting. He took various measurements on the xrays to confirm this. He performed a thorough physical exam. This showed a patella with very ...
This study is a research project initiated by the graduate research student (Mikaela I. Poling) and assisted by the clinical genetics fellow and graduate student (Andrés Morales) in partial fulfilment the requirements for their Masters degrees in Clinical and Applied Physiology, under approval, direction, and supervision of the study PI (Rodger J. McCormick).. Mental Health and Congenital Deformities:. Apajasalo et al. (1998) found significantly decreased health-related quality of life versus controls among adults and youth ages with chondrodysplasias. Differences in adult scores were in the areas of mobility, usual activities, and sexual activity and discomfort. Youth scores differed more in school and hobbies and friends and physical appearance. Didierjean-Pillet (2002) stressed concern for aesthetics of reconstruction in consideration of psychiatric impacts of congenital deformities in psychosocial functioning. Nagata et al. (2008) found that 20% of mothers with children operated on for ...
The present study describes the pathologic changes in the brain and the spinal cord of aborted, stillbirth and deformities of newborn lambs infected with viral agents. From February 2012 to March 2013, a total of 650 aborted fetuses from 793 pregnant ewes were studied from 8 flocks at different areas in the Mazandaran province in the north of Iran. And randomly, systematic necropsy was performed to collect tissues, and all gross abnormalities were recorded at necropsy by the pathologist .Nevertheless, we conducted a limited number of necropsies for aborted fetuses. In the most cases, arthrogryposis was the most common musculoskeletal defects and at necropsy, malformations of the brain included hydranencephaly, porencephaly, hydrocephalus and cerebellar hypoplasia, mainly in the brain stem and gray and white matter of the brain and cerebellum were observed. Histopathologic lesions included chronic multifocal lymphoplasmacytic encephalitis(nonsuppurative) with extensive perivascular cuffing in some cases,
HI. MY NAME IS TRACY. I AM 26 YEARS OLD. I WAS BORN WITH ARTHROGRYPOSIS. IT IS A TIGHTENING UP IN THE MUSCLES AND JOINTS AND THE DETERIORATION OF THE BONES. WHEN I WAS BORN, MAINLY MY RIGHT SIDE WAS AFFECTED. AND, AFTER MY FIRST SURGERY AT THE AGE OF 1, MY LEFT SIDE WAS SOON AFFECTED. ALL TOGETHER I HAVE HAD 26 SURGERIES. WHEN I WAS 3 YEARS OLD, I HAD STARTED SCHOOL. THEY HAD ME IN SPECIAL EDUCATION UP UNTIL KINDERGARTEN. FIRST GRADE I WAS MAINSTREAMED INTO REGULAR EDUCATION WITH LEARNING DISABILITY CLASSES. ONE OF MY HOSPITALIZATIONS WHEN I HAD SURGERIES I WAS ON TV. IT WAS DURING CHRISTMAS TIME AND I WAS SUPPOSED TO PLAY JINGLE BELLS ON MY KEYBOARD. I PLAYED TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR INSTEAD.

Adducted thumb-clubfoot syndrome is an autosomal-recessive disorder characterized by typical facial appearance, wasted build, thin and translucent skin, congenital contractures of thumbs and feet, joint instability, facial clefting, and coagulopathy, as well as heart, kidney, or intestinal defects. We elucidated the molecular basis of the disease by using a SNP array-based genome-wide linkage approach that identified distinct homozygous nonsense and missense mutations in CHST14 in each of four consanguineous families with this disease. The CHST14 gene encodes N-acetylgalactosamine 4-O-sulfotransferase 1 (D4ST1), which catalyzes 4-O sulfation of N-acetylgalactosamine in the repeating iduronic acid-alpha 1,3-N-acetylgalactosamine disaccharide sequence to form dermatan sulfate. Mass spectrometry of glycosaminoglycans from a patients fibroblasts revealed absence of dermatan sulfate and excess of chondroitin sulfate, showing that 4-O sulfation by CHST14 is essential for dermatan sulfate formation in ...
Clinical signs in sheep include aborted fetuses, arthrogryposis (limb malformation), brachygnathia (lower jaw malformation), hydrocephaly (water on the brain), microcephaly (small brain), and spinal cord hypoplasia (under development) if the lamb is born alive. Those born alive usually do not survive long. The virus appears to have a predilection for the neurological tissue. The earlier in gestation the virus was acquire, the more severe the predilection. Infections between days 28-32 of gestation usually result in mummification and embryonic loss ...
In microcephaly a babys head is smaller than that of a baby of the same sex and age. Microcephaly is a clinical sign and not a disease. Increased rates of congenital microcephaly have been reported during the Zika virus outbreak in Brazil, beginning in late 2015.14 15 Genetic or environmental brain damage in utero can result in congenital microcephaly at birth, and infectious causes are well known; eg, rubella, cytomegalovirus, and toxoplasmosis.12 Before 2015, evidence for a congenital infection presumed to be caused by Zika virus was lacking.. This disease goes beyond microcephaly, with other symptoms such as visual and hearing impairment, and unusual signs and symptoms different from other congenital infections, such as arthrogryposis and no microcephaly, suggesting that the term congenital Zika syndrome is more appropriate. The visual changes in this syndrome have been described previously.16. The presence of disorders of cortical development suggest that the insult occurred within the ...

The WREX (Wilmington Robotic EXoskeleton) is being used by many children with neuromuscular conditions such as arthrogryposis and muscular dystrophy. Nemours/A.I. duPont Hospital for Children alone has provided a WREX for about 80 children in the last 3 years. This is being done through the orthopedic and muscle clinics in the hospital. We would like to perform a retrospective study to see how well the children are doing with the WREX. We propose getting this feedback through a survey administered to families using the WREX. The survey will be performed in two parts. 1) A phone survey will use the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM). 2) an online survey with additional questions. The parents are asked to submit answers on behalf of the children if they are unable to ...

Nonerosive immune-mediated polyarthritis is an immune-mediated inflammatory disease of the diarthroidal joints (movable joints: shoulder, knee, etc.), which occurs in multiple joints, and in which the cartilage of the joint (articular cartilage) is not eroded away. A type III hypersensitivity reaction, which causes antibodies to be bound to an antigen, in this case joint tissue, causes this condition.. These antibody-antigen complexes are called immune complexes, and they are deposited within the synovial membrane (where the fluid that lubricates the joints is held). There, the immune complexes trigger an abnormal immune response to the joint cartilage. What this means is that, in effect, the body is fighting itself. This leads to an inflammatory response, and complement protein activation by the tissue surrounding the cartilage, in response to the immunity displaying cells, leading to the clinical signs of arthritis.. ...

Functional training, as with functional rehabilitation is the thinking persons form of training/rehab. It involves a willingness to critically examine the physical demands, kinematics, and kinetics of a sport or activity and then create exercise that best represents these conditions. Human movement is so complex, and to think that we can successfully train human movement using isolated joint/muscle activities in single plane motion is a disservice to our clients/patients. I do appreciate that isolated, single joint/muscle exercise has its place, but it should only be as a small percentage of the training/rehab plan. Most human activities involve multiple joint motions, using muscles that function across multiple joints, and in many cases, involving muscles that do not even cross a particular joint but still contribute to that joints function. Training and rehab to address this level of complexity requires a great deal of scrutiny into human movement. For instance, the hip abductor muscles ...
Electronic clinical records of patients presented at our veterinary referral hospital between April 2009 and November 2018 were searched for cervical myelopathies associated with vertebral cervical malformations. We retrieved information regarding age, sex, breed, body weight, clinical signs, diagnostic imaging, level and type of cervical malformation, treatment modality, surgical technique, postoperative complications, medium and long-term follow-up and outcome (Table 1). Cases were numbered according to the radiological findings and presumed aetiopathogenesis. Follow-up was defined as a re-examination performed at our centre or via a telephonic conversation with the client. Medium-term follow up was defined as follow-up up to 180 days after the initial presentation at our centre. Long-term follow-up was defined as follow-up for 181 days or longer. All cervical malformations were diagnosed via high-field magnetic resonance (MR) scanning (1.5 Tesla; Siemens Symphony Tim system, Enlargen ...

One aspect of functional training programs is to focus on joint function across multiple joints.. types of joints in the body. There are different types of joints in the body with different structure and different functions. Some joints are designed to be stabilizers and some designed for mobility.. The muscles attached to these joints are designed to support the function of the joint as well. You have stabilizer muscles, and you have mobility muscles.. A functional exercise based on multi-joint concept is designed to bring stability to those joints that require stability and mobility to those joints that require mobility.. After an injury or to promote performance based on a single joint, a functional exercise must be designed and performed based on the structure of a joint and it may be different depending on the need for stability or mobility.. One way to tell the difference is through the range of motion. Exercises that promote stability are tight, with smaller range of motion. Transversus ...
