Many INBORN METABOLIC BRAIN DISORDERS affecting CNS formation are often associated with cortical malformations. They are common causes of EPILEPSY and developmental delay.Encephalitis, St. Louis: A viral encephalitis caused by the St. Louis encephalitis virus (ENCEPHALITIS VIRUS, ST. LOUIS), a FLAVIVIRUS. It is transmitted to humans and other vertebrates primarily by mosquitoes of the genus CULEX. The primary animal vectors are wild birds and the disorder is endemic to the midwestern and southeastern United States. Infections may be limited to an influenza-like illness or present as an ASEPTIC MENINGITIS or ENCEPHALITIS.

Muscle fibers undergo a process that features degeneration and regeneration. Clinical manifestations include proximal weakness in the first few years of life, pseudohypertrophy, cardiomyopathy (see MYOCARDIAL DISEASES), and an increased incidence of impaired mentation. Becker muscular dystrophy is a closely related condition featuring a later onset of disease (usually adolescence) and a slowly progressive course. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1415)Carrier Proteins: Transport proteins that carry specific substances in the blood or across cell membranes.Muscle, Striated: One of two types of muscle in the body, characterized by the array of bands observed under microscope.

Muscular hypertrophy is common and myotonia may impair ambulation and other movements. It is classified as Thomsen (autosomal dominant) or Becker (autosomal recessive) generalized myotonia mainly based on the inheritance pattern. Becker type is also clinically more severe. An autosomal dominant variant with milder symptoms and later onset is known as myotonia levior. Mutations in the voltage-dependent skeletal muscle chloride channel are associated with the disorders.Dyskeratosis Congenita: A predominantly X-linked recessive syndrome characterized by a triad of reticular skin pigmentation, nail dystrophy and leukoplakia of mucous membranes. Oral and dental abnormalities may also be present. Complications are a predisposition to malignancy and bone marrow involvement with pancytopenia. (from Int J Paediatr Dent 2000 Dec;10(4):328-34) The X-linked form is also known as Zinsser-Cole-Engman syndrome and involves the gene which encodes a highly conserved protein called dyskerin.Musculoskeletal Diseases: Diseases of the muscles and their associated ligaments and other connective tissue and of the bones and cartilage viewed collectively.Dystonia Musculorum Deformans: A condition characterized by focal DYSTONIA that progresses to involuntary spasmodic contractions of the muscles of the legs, trunk, arms, and face. The hands are often spared, however, sustained axial and limb contractions may lead to a state where the body is grossly contorted. Onset is usually in the first or second decade. Familial patterns of inheritance, primarily autosomal dominant with incomplete penetrance, have been identified. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1078)Strabismus: Misalignment of the visual axes of the eyes. In comitant strabismus the degree of ocular misalignment does not vary with the direction of gaze.

(Miller, Walsh & Hoyt's Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology, 4th ed, p641)Tremor: Cyclical movement of a body part that can represent either a physiologic process or a manifestation of disease. Intention or action tremor, a common manifestation of CEREBELLAR DISEASES, is aggravated by movement. In contrast, resting tremor is maximal when there is no attempt at voluntary movement, and occurs as a relatively frequent manifestation of PARKINSON DISEASE.Mutation, Missense: A mutation in which a codon is mutated to one directing the incorporation of a different amino acid. This substitution may result in an inactive or unstable product. (From A Dictionary of Genetics, King & Stansfield, 5th ed)Anterior Horn Cells: MOTOR NEURONS in the anterior (ventral) horn of the SPINAL CORD which project to SKELETAL MUSCLES.Spinal Muscular Atrophies of Childhood: A group of recessively inherited diseases that feature progressive muscular atrophy and hypotonia. They are classified as type I (Werdnig-Hoffman disease), type II (intermediate form), and type III (Kugelberg-Welander disease). Type I is fatal in infancy, type II has a late infantile onset and is associated with survival into the second or third decade. Type III has its onset in childhood, and is slowly progressive. (J Med Genet 1996 Apr:33(4):281-3)Muscular Atrophy, Spinal: A group of disorders marked by progressive degeneration of motor neurons in the spinal cord resulting in weakness and muscular atrophy, usually without evidence of injury to the corticospinal tracts.

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. ...

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 ...
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 ...
Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC) is a multifactorial genetic condition resulting in multiple joint contractures evident from birth. Our patient is a 34 yr old G1P0 female (152cm, 63.6kg) with AMC and severe scoliosis presenting with contractions at 38 wks gestation, one week prior to a planed caesarian section for fetal macrosomia and unfavorable pelvic anatomy. Her medical history includes multiple orthopedic procedures and extensive spinal fusion from T3-S2 for severe scoliosis as a child. Patient has been wheelchair bound since age of two. She had been on lovenox for thromboembolic prophylaxis during pregnancy and was bridged to subcutaneous heparin (5000 units) BID two weeks prior to presentation. She also has a history of hypertension with normal pressures during pregnancy and T wave abnormalities seen on EKG with normal follow-up echocardiogram. Patient was previously seen in anesthesia consult clinic. Her airway exam showed a Mallampati class 2 airway with full range of cervical ...
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.

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. Controlling effect of ...

Freeman-Sheldon syndrome (FSS), also termed, distal arthrogryposis type 2A (DA2A), craniocarpotarsal dysplasia (or dystrophy), whistling face-windmill vane hand syndrome, is a rare form of multiple congenital contracture (MCC) syndromes (arthrogryposises) and is the most severe form of distal arthrogryposis. Features include: talipes equinovarus, camptodactyly, scoliosis, ocular abnormalities with regard to the musculature involved, microstomia, high arched palate, attenuated movement of facial musculature, and various other primary anomalies involving, but limited to, the musculoskeletal systems.
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). Members of this DEAD-box protein family serve as RNA helicases and/or RNA-protein complex remodelers during many essential aspects of RNA ...

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 ...

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 ...

The hypotheses of the present study of Freeman-Sheldon syndrome (FSS) and related conditions are: (1) that exercise capacity is lower in FSS patients versus normal controls, and the lower exercise capacity is due to changes in the muscles normal structure and an inability of sufficient quantity of the energy molecule to bind to muscle; (2) this muscle problem reduces amount of air that can get in the lung and amount of oxygen carried in the blood, which then has the effect of increasing heart and respiration rates, blood pressure, and deep body temperature, and produces muscle rigidity; (3) the events noted above, when they occur during cardiac stress testing, are related to a problem similar to malignant hyperthermia (MH) reported in some muscle disorders without use of drugs known to cause MH. MH (a life-threatening metabolic reaction that classically is triggered when susceptible persons receive certain drugs used in anaesthesia ...

Sheep) Clinical signs have not been reported in adult or growing sheep; although there is anecdotal evidence of drop in milk yield of milking sheep in Netherlands. In new-born animals and foetuses, the disease is associated in animals born alive or dead or aborted following infection of the dam. The disease primarily affects sheep, but also cattle and goats. Malformations observed include bent limbs and fixed joints, brain deformities and marked damage to the spinal cord. Persistent flexion of the joints (arthrogryposis or "contracted tendons") is reported to be a common birth defect. However, arthrogryposis can also be inherited as an autosomal recessive condition and so vet analysis is necessary to diagnose the SBV on this symptom. Some animals are born with a normal appearance but have nervous signs due to brain or spinal damage; such as blindness, ataxia, recumbency, inability to suck and sometimes seizures. The severity and type of deformities vary depend on the point at which the foetus ...

The PIEZO2 gene is located on the short arm of chromosome 18. It spans a length of 482 kb of DNA and its coding sequence is spread across 55 exons. The protein product encoded by this gene has a molecular mass of 318 kDa and consists of 2752 amino acids. Several additional isoforms of the PIEZO2 protein exist due to alternatively spliced transcript variants. The gene is found to be overexpressed in the brain, spinal cord, pancreas, liver and lung. Heterozygous mutations in the PIEZO2 gene, including missense variants and deletions, have been linked to the disorders of MWKS, DA3 and DA5. So far only one mutation (R2686C) has been identified in MWKS. Homozygous and compound heterozygous mutations in the gene associated with Distal Arthrogryposis, with Impaired Proprioception and Touch (DAIPT) mainly include nonsense variants and deletions that cause frameshift and premature truncation, often resulting in a non-functioning PIEZO2 protein.. ...
This gene encodes a member of the M13 family of endopeptidases. Members of this family are zinc-containing type II integral-membrane proteins that are important regulators of neuropeptide and peptide hormone activity. Mutations in this gene are associated with autosomal recessive distal arthrogryposis, type 5D. This gene has multiple pseudogenes on chromosome 2. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2014 ...
The heavy chain 1 of cytoplasmic dynein (DYNC1H1) is responsible for movement of the motor complex along microtubules and recruitment of dynein components. Mutations in DYNC1H1 are associated with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy (HMSN), cortical malformations, or a combination of these. Combining linkage analysis and whole-exome sequencing, we identified a novel dominant defect in the DYNC1H1 tail domain (c.1792C>T, p.Arg598Cys) causing axonal HMSN. Mutation analysis of the tail region in 355 patients identified a de novo mutation (c.791G>T, p.Arg264Leu) in an isolated SMA patient. Her phenotype was more severe than previously described, characterized by multiple congenital contractures and delayed motor milestones, without brain malformations. The mutations in DYNC1H1 increase the interaction with its adaptor BICD2. This relates to previous studies on BICD2 mutations causing a highly similar phenotype. Our findings broaden the genetic heterogeneity and ...

Locomotor training using equipment that helps to support a patients body weight is helping some patients with spinal cord injuries improve or gain walking ability. Studies conducted involving people with both acute and chronic SCI (spinal cord injury) have shown that it can be possible for patients with motor-incomplete paraplegia or tetraplegia, who still have some feeling or ability to move after their injury, to improve their ability to walk with body-weight-supported training on a treadmill. Shriners Hospitals in Philadelphia and Chicago offer this therapy technique, which provides tremendous therapeutic opportunities to their patients with SCI, as well as those with other conditions that affect walking, such as limb deficiencies, cerebral palsy and arthrogryposis.. Shriners Hospitals for Children is a health care system with 22 locations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Its staff is dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing pediatric specialty care, conducting innovative ...
I was just sitting there soaking in what the Lord was saying to me. Then I was shocked to hear Benny Hinn say these words:. "Patrick is going to be fine.". I knew that the Lord had just given me a promise.. I hung on to that promise and let the Lord lead me into a more "believing for the supernatural, less dependent on medical professionals" lifestyle.. When Patrick was 2 1/2 and 3 years old we went to a church with a little boy named Reggie who was about Patricks age who also had arthrogryposis. He was more severely affected by it. His wrists were bent like the wrists of the baby in the first picture above. He couldnt straighten them out to hold a cup or get food to his mouth or anything. He needed help with everything. He had a really hard time walking, too. In fact he couldnt walk when we first met him. He didnt start walking until he was over 2 years old. Patrick had started right around 1 year old.. I was amazed that there were 2 boys in the same church with this condition. It is very ...

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 ...
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,

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 ...

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.. ...

I had rotator cuff surgery back in June. (full tear) I wasnt able to do any Aikido until December and my shoulder still has very limited motion in certain directions and can be painful at times. I always let my partner know about my bad shoulder so as not to reinjure it. Currently I am working on strengthening it and stretching it to regain a full range of motion.The doctor said it will take a full year for it to be back to 100%. In the mean time I am careful with it but I also feel it progressing day by day ...
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 ...

I would never profess to understand the ins and outs of running a multi-million dollar Internet series. I will, though, step up and humbly admit that I do know what it takes to create an Internet-based presence. Ive been doing it now for just shy of 19 years. In that time, Ive learned that some things work and some things dont. When you realize that something isnt going as expected, you explain why and move from there. Im reminded of a "Rhyme Tyme" contest that we used to feature here on the site. It was fun, but there just wasnt enough interest at the time to justify the time expenditure involved in keeping the feature. Since this column is somehow not all about me, Ill get to the point.

Freeman-Sheldon syndrome is a condition that primarily affects the face, hands, and feet. People with this disorder have a distinctive facial appearance including a small mouth (microstomia) with pursed lips, giving the appearance of a "whistling face." For this reason, the condition is sometimes called "whistling face syndrome.". People with Freeman-Sheldon syndrome may also have a prominent forehead and brow ridges, a sunken appearance of the middle of the face (midface hypoplasia), a short nose, a long area between the nose and mouth (philtrum), deep folds in the skin between the nose and lips (nasolabial folds), full cheeks, and a chin dimple shaped like an "H" or "V".. Affected individuals may have a number of abnormalities that affect the eyes. These may include widely spaced eyes (hypertelorism), deep-set eyes, outside corners of the eyes that point downward (down-slanting palpebral fissures), a narrowing of the eye opening (blepharophimosis), droopy eyelids (ptosis), and eyes that do not ...

TSEN54-related pontocerebellar hypoplasia (PCH) includes three PCH types (PCH2, 4, and 5) that share characteristic neuroradiologic and neurologic findings. The three types (which differ mainly in life expectancy) were thought to be distinct entities before their molecular basis was known. Children with PCH2 usually succumb before age ten years, whereas those with PCH4 and 5 usually succumb as neonates. Children with PCH2 have generalized clonus, incoordination of sucking and swallowing, impaired motor and cognitive development with lack of voluntary motor development, central visual impairment, and an increased risk for rhabdomyolysis complicating severe infections. Epilepsy is present in approximately 50%. Neonates with PCH4 often have seizures, multiple joint contractures (arthrogryposis), generalized clonus, and central respiratory impairment. PCH5, which resembles PCH4, has been described in one family.

Our data show that mothers with a bicornuate uterus have about four times the risk of having liveborn infants with congenital defects than mothers with a normal uterus. To our knowledge, this is the first time this risk has been quantified using a case-control approach.. Previous authors6 7 have suggested a relationship between maternal bicornuate uterus and congenital deformations and vascular disruptions in their offspring. However, these reports were based on clinical observations and not on epidemiologic studies. In our data, cases with deformations (limb contractures, scoliosis, nasal hypoplasia, micrognathia, and clubfoot) constituted 34.2% (13/38) of total cases, which is similar to previously reported risk.7 However, as shown in Table 2, nasal hypoplasia was the only deformation that we found to be statistically related with this maternal uterine defect. Other deformations, such as micrognathia, scoliosis, limb contractures, and clubfoot, were more frequent in infants of these mothers ...

anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These medicine are specifically prescribed for patients suffering from different types of inflammatory disease.. If only some joints are affected by the inflammatory disease, then joint injections are also a viable type of treatment. These injections involve native treatment using corticosteroids.. These corticosteroids are injected directly into the affected areas, as a result of the area of impact is localized, it can not be used to treat inflammation of multiple joints at the same time.. If each of those treatments prove ineffective, then immunosuppressants are generally used. These are exclusively prescribed once the previous 2 treatments have failed entirely. The advantage of using immune suppressant drug treatment is that it also treats the underlying skin disease in addition to the inflammatory disease.. As with all other types of inflammatory disease, theres no cure available yet for psoriatic arthritis. Patients merely have to cope with current ...
It was your own quote. Now the funny thing is, that it fits the world of weightlifting as well. It suits it more than well. You cant really do anything in the gym without mental processing and motoric learning. Machines are a bit easier, but you can compare it to plain practise of two persons passing the ball while standing still in football; Very simplyfied and doesnt take too much learning. But the curve goes up. Bench Press, Overhead Press, Deadlifts. They all take some mental processing, since it makes you contract different muscles at different times, use multiple joints and such. To do these things well and with a good technique, its takes lots of practice, mental visualization and training. Then on the top are Olympic lifts like snatches and cleans. These moves have several parts, almost every joint has big and important motion, and the technique is most hard to learn ...
A fundamental lemma is an identity between orbital integrals on two different groups. For example, the endoscopic fundamental lemma arises from the stabilization of the Arthur-Selberg trace formula and endoscopic functoriality in the Langlands program. The Jacquet-Rallis fundamental lemma arises from the W. Zhangs relative trace formula approach to the Gan-Gross-Prasad conjecture for unitary groups. Both sides of the fundamental lemma can be thought of as counting the number of lattices satisfying certain properties.. In the equal characteristic case, the endoscopic fundamental lemma was proved by Ngo and the Jacquet-Rallis fundamental lemma was proved by Yun. These proofs use geometric methods (perverse sheaves) in an essential way. The advantage in the equal characteristic is one can endow the space of lattices in question with a geometric structure (e.g., the ...

The fibrillinopathy panel is designed to detect mutations in genes that produce disorders that have similar, if not in at least some patients, identical phenotypes. These include: Marfan syndrome or Marfan like disorders caused by FBN1 mutations, congenital contractural arachnodactyly also known as Beals syndrome or arthrogryposis, distal, type 9, caused by mutations in FBN2, and homocystinuria caused by mutations in CBS.. Clicking on the individual genes listed below will link to a brief description of each disorder. Note: The presence or absence of ectopia lentis or the direction of lens dislocation has been used as a guide to clinically discriminate between these disorders. This practice seems to be controversial and probably should not be a major determinant to establish a final diagnosis.. Copy number variation (CNV) analysis of the fibrillinopathy genes is also offered as a panel. Additionally, CTGT offers a comprehensive test (both NGS and CNV panels) for these genes. Panel genes are also ...

156 people (109 females, 47 males; mean age 54.2 years; mean time since diagnosis 14.9 years) agreed to participate and were assessed. Fifty-six per cent (56%) of participants had contracture in at least one major joint of upper or lower limb. The most common site of contracture was the ankle (43.9%). Seventy per cent (70%) of participants had muscle weakness in one or more muscle groups. As muscle weakness, joint contractures were present at early stage of MS and the prevalence was associated with the progression of the disease.. ...
Several embryotoxic agents, which includes sodium salicylate, were reported to induce vertebral variations in the form of supernumerary ribs (SNR) when administered to pregnant rodents. Because the biological significance of SNR in toxicological studies is still a matter of debate, we investigated the molecular basis of this defect by analyzing the possible involvement of Hox genes, known to specify vertebrae identity. Sodium salicylate (300mg/kg) was administered to pregnant rats on gestational day 9 (GD 9). On GD 13, the expression of several Hox genes, selected according to the position of their anterior limit of expression, namely upstream (Hoxa9), at the level (Hoxa10) and downstream (Hoxd9) to the morphological alteration, were analyzed. Posterior shifts in the anterior limit of expression of Hoxa10 and Hoxd9 were observed following exposure to salicylate, which could explain an effect at the level of the axial skeleton. This finding suggests that the appearance of ectopic ribs can be ...

When an action potential arrives at the presynaptic terminal, voltage gated calcium channels are activated, allowing calcium to enter the terminal and trigger the release of acetylcholine into the synaptic cleft. In the Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome antibodies are directed against these calcium channels, resulting in reduced acetylcholine release.. Autoimmune myasthenia gravis has long been known to be caused by antibodies directed against subunits of the acetylcholine receptor. Transient neonatal myasthenia and recurrent neonatal arthrogryposis (secondary to reduced fetal movement in utero) may be caused by transplacental transfer of these maternal antibodies. These paediatric disorders can be prevented or ameliorated by appropriate treatment of the mother.. Congenital myasthenic syndromes are caused by a variety of abnormalities in neuromuscular transmission.19 In the slow channel syndrome, dominantly inherited mutations in channel subunits lead to prolonged channel opening and ...
ACE inhibitors can cause fetal and neonatal morbidity and death when administered to pregnant women. Several dozen cases have been reported in the world literature. When pregnancy is detected, ACE inhibitors should be discontinued as soon as possible.. The use of ACE inhibitors during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy has been associated with fetal and neonatal injury, including hypotension, neonatal skull hypoplasia, anuria, reversible or irreversible renal failure, and death. Oligohydramnios has also been reported, presumably resulting from decreased fetal renal function; oligohydramnios in this setting has been associated with fetal limb contractures, craniofacial deformation, and hypoplastic lung development. Prematurity, intrauterine growth retardation, and patent ductus arteriosus have also been reported, although it is not clear whether these occurrences were due to the ACE-inhibitor exposure.. These adverse effects do not appear to have resulted from intrauterine ACE-inhibitor ...

Unfortunately, even if the cause of hemiplegia is known, there is no cure for it. Once brain injury has occurred, the only available treatments are to ease the symptoms and improve the quality of life. Drugs are used to treat painful mucle spasms. Drugs like Librium or Valium are frequently administered to help break up muscle spasms and also help to calm the ill person. Drugs are also given to individuals whom have recurrent seizures. [9]. Surgery has a very small role in the treatment of hemiplegia. Some individuals may develop joint contractures and acquire severe deformities of the joints. In such cases the surgeon may cut the ligaments and relieve joint contractures. Individuals whom are unable to swallow may have a tube inserted into the stomach by the surgeon. This allows food to be given directly into the stomach. The food is blended or pureed and instilled at low rates. Prosthetics. The majority of individuals with hemiplegia will benefit from some type of prosthetic device. There are ...
Akabane virus (AKAV), an arthropod-transmitted bunyavirus, is a major cause of congenital abnormalities and encephalomyelitis in ruminants. In 2010, there was a major outbreak of encephalomyelitis in Korea and fifteen AKAV strains, including AKAV-7, were isolated from cows. To identify the neuropathogenicity of AKAV-7, we performed experimental infection of cows. Six-month-old female Korean Holstein dairy cattle were inoculated with AKAV-7 by various routes, including intracerebral (IC), intrasubarachnoid space (IS), subcutaneous (SC) and intravenous (IV); a separate group was vaccinated before intravenous infection. Five of the six cows in the IC group and two of the six cows in the IS group showed clinical signs such as locomotor ataxia and paralysis of the hind limbs. Three of six cows died after IC infection 9-12 days post infection (dpi). Histopathologic changes such as nonsuppurative encephalomyelitis were confirmed in various parts of the central nervous system in the IC, IS and SC groups. Early
