Juvenile Muscular Atrophy of Distal Upper Extremity (Hirayama Disease) Keizo Hirayama Abstract This disease is characterized by initially progressive mus-cular weakness and wasting of the distal upper limb(s) in young people predominantly in men, followed by a sponta-neous arrest within several years. This disease has been. View This Abstract Online; Predictability of the clinical course of juvenile dermatomyositis based on initial muscle biopsy: a retrospective study of 72 patients. (DM) is in doubt, a case has not been made for routine muscle biopsy (MB). We sought to determine whether MB findings prior to systemic therapy have prognostic value.

Skeletal muscle atrophy attributable to muscular inactivity has significant adverse functional consequences. While the initiating physiological event leading to atrophy seems to be the loss of muscle tension and a good deal of the physiology of muscle atrophy has been characterized, little is known about the triggers or the molecular signaling events underlying this process. Clinical variants of the disease may initially affect only the spinal lower motor neurones (progressive muscular atrophy variant); only the upper motor neurones (primary lateral sclerosis variant); or only the bulbar musculature (progressive bulbar palsy variant). With disease progression, the majority of patients will develop features of ALS.

When Howard Tooth returned to the topic of progressive muscular atrophy in what amounts to a wide-ranging book review of the kind for which Brain has always had a reputation, he aims at a comprehensive account of the clinical features and pathological basis for ‘the disease, or rather group of diseases, known as Progressive Muscular Atrophy.

Abstract 'Reprinted from the "Canada Lancet." September, 'Cover onic of access: Internet.4Author: James Stewart. The classical form of severe spinal muscular atrophy (SMA type 1; Werdnig-Hoffmann disease) has a very consistent clinical phenotype that is well recognized by paediatricians.

Progressive muscular atrophy (PMA) is a form of motor neuron disease, but its outcome is not well defined, and the aim was to study the pattern of clinical progression in PMA.

We studied Introduction: Juvenile muscular atrophy of the distal upper extremities (JMADUE) is a rare, sporadic disorder that affects adolescent males and is characterized by progressive but self‐limited weakness of the distal upper etiology is unknown, but cervical hyperflexion has been hypothesized.

Methods: We report a case of an adolescent male who presented with typical JMADUE but. A clinical and genetic study of spinal muscular atrophy of adult onset: the autosomal recessive form as a discrete disease entity. Pearn JH, Hudgson P, Walton JN. Brain, (4), 01 Dec Cited by 33 articles | PMID:   The clinical progression was clearly that of progressive muscular atrophy and not of spinal muscular atrophy.

Kozhevnikov. In Dr. Roth gave the information in the Moscow Medical Newspaper about patient K., aged 22 (Fig. 3) with muscle affection similar to Duchenne's progressive muscular atrophy of childhood. After the patient's death of lung. An accepted nomenclature also defines and limits a syndrome.

Several of Charcot's predecessors had also recognised the clinical features of ALS, for example, the Edinburgh surgeon Sir Charles Bell (–), Aran (–) who probably first recognised progressive muscular atrophy (PMA) and Cruveilhier himself.

Twenty-seven patients with juvenile nonprogressive muscular atrophy localized in the hand and forearm were analyzed. The clinical characteristics were juvenile male occurrence, insidious onset, specific distribution of localized muscular atrophy and a stationary course. On electromyography, denervation voltage (or giant NMU) is found in the atrophied muscles and sometimes in contralateral.

Occurrence of nonprogressive juvenile-onset SMA primarily in males manifesting in peripubertal period, strict topographic localisation of symptoms and signs and its occurrence in brothers, and twins suggests a role of genetic factor in the pathogenesis.

Spinal muscular atrophy is clinically and genetically heterogeneous. Spinal muscular atrophy is a genetic disorder characterized by weakness and wasting (atrophy) in muscles used for movement (skeletal muscles).It is caused by a loss of specialized nerve cells, called motor neurons that control muscle movement.

The weakness tends to be more severe in the muscles that are close to the center of the body (proximal) compared to muscles away from the body's center. INTRODUCTION. Juvenile dermatomyositis (DM) commonly involves skin in diagnostic patterns, skeletal muscle, and occasionally the gastrointestinal tract or other organs (1, 2).Although the morbidity and mortality of juvenile DM improved after introduction of corticosteroid therapy, the long‐term outcome of treated juvenile DM differs substantially from patient to patient ().

Feline X-linked MD - A hypertrophic form of X-linked MD has been described in young domestic shorthair cats. 34,35 In contrast to the atrophy present in dogs, the disease in cats is characterized by muscular hypertrophy with potentially lethal complications.

36 Clinical signs are present at approximately 3 months of age and include muscular. Multiple system atrophy (MSA) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a combination of symptoms that affect both the autonomic nervous system (the part of the nervous system that controls involuntary action such as blood pressure or digestion) and movement.

Juvenile muscular atrophy of the distal upper extremity (JMADUE, Hirayama disease) was first reported in as ‘juvenile muscular atrophy of unilateral upper extremity’.
