Glossary for Arm deformity

Medical terms related to Arm deformity or mentioned in this section include:

  • Acrofacial dysostosis Preis type: One of a group of disorders characterized by defective limb and facial development. The Preis type is very rare and the range and severity of symptoms is variable.
  • Acrofacial dysostosis Rodriguez type: One of a group of disorders characterized by defective limb and facial development. The Rodriguez type is very rare and primarily involves severe limb and organ malformations.
  • Acrofacial dysostosis, Nager type: A rare genetic disorder characterized by underdeveloped thumbs, forearm and cheekbones as well as ear defects.
  • Alcohol -- Teratogenic Agent: There is strong evidence to indicate that exposure to Alcohol during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Amniotic Bands: A rare condition where abnormal fetal development occurs when bands of tissue encircle parts of the fetus and affect the growth of that portion. The band of tissue develops from the internal womb lining. The location of the band on the fetus determines the symptoms and the seriousness of the condition.
  • Anophthalmos with limb anomalies: A rare disorder characterized by absent eyes
  • Arm conditions: Conditions that affect the arm
  • Arm fracture: Arm fracture is a break in any of the bones in the arm.
  • Arm pain: Pain or discomfort of one or both arms
  • Arm symptoms: Symptoms affecting the arm
  • Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita neurogenic type: A rare non-progressive syndrome characterized by congenital contractures that originates from a nerve problem (spinal motor neuron depletion).
  • Arthrogryposis, distal, type 2B: A form of distal arthrogryposis (joint contractures in ends of limbs) that also involves craniofacial abnormalities.
  • Bone symptoms: Symptoms affecting the body's bones
  • Burns: Injury from burns and scalds.
  • Buttiens-Fryns syndrome: A rare genetic disorder characterized by a small jaw, small mouth and defects involving the hands and feet.
  • Cocaine -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Cocaine during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Cornelia de Lange Syndrome: A very rare disorder involving delayed physical development and various malformations involving the head, face and limbs. The severity of symptoms is variable.
  • Cornelia de Lange syndrome 2: A very rare disorder involving delayed physical development and various malformations involving the head, face and limbs. Type 2 is not as severe as type 1 with some of the abnormalities not presenting until later in life or absent altogether. The range and severity of symptoms is variable.
  • Deformity symptoms: Various types of deformity
  • Diaphragmatic defect -- limb deficiency -- skull defect: A very rare syndrome characterized mainly by a defect in the diaphragm that allows some of the abdominal organs to move into the chest cavity, poor skull calcification and limb abnormalities involving missing or abnormal bones in the arms or legs.
  • Familial hypertryptophanemia: A rare genetic metabolic disorder characterized by high levels of tryptophan in the blood. The disorder tends to run in families (familial).
  • Femur bifid with monodactylous ectrodactyly: A rare condition characterized by a thigh bone split into two and missing fingers resulting in a lobster-claw shaped hand (ectrodactyly).
  • Fibular aplasia -- ectrodactyly: A very rare syndrome characterized mainly by various bone abnormalities involving the arms and feet.
  • Fryns-Hofkens-Fabry syndrome: A very rare syndrome characterized underdeveloped forearm bones.
  • Head symptoms: Symptoms affecting the head or brain
  • Holt-Oram Syndrome: A rare inherited disorder characterized by hand, arm and heart abnormalities. Bone abnormalities usually affect the left arm more than the right and occasionally only one arm and/or hand is affected.
  • Hypertryptophanemia: A rare genetic metabolic disorder characterized by high levels of tryptophan in the blood.
  • Hypopigmented lesions in children: Hypopigmented lesions in children refers are sores or ulcers that are colorless or have lost color in a child.
  • Injury: Any damage inflicted in the body
  • Klippel Feil Syndrome: A rare congenital disorder characterized by abnormal fusion of two or more vertebrae in the neck. The disorder is often associated with other abnormalities but their incidence is highly variable.
  • Klippel Feil deformity conductive deafness absent vagina: A rare developmental disorder occurring only in females and characterized by skeletal and genitourinary abnormalities and small stature.
  • Klippel-Feil syndrome recessive type: A rare recessively inherited disorder characterized by abnormal fusion of two or more vertebrae in the neck. The disorder is often associated with other abnormalities but their incidence is highly variable.
  • Klippel-Feil syndrome, dominant type: A rare dominantly inherited disorder characterized by abnormal fusion of two or more vertebrae in the neck. The disorder is often associated with other abnormalities but their incidence is highly variable.
  • Leg symptoms: Symptoms affecting the leg
  • Leprosy: Hypopigmented lesions in children refers are sores or ulcers that are colorless or have lost color in a child.
  • Limb deficiencies distal micrognathia: A rare genetic disorder characterized by a small jaw, small mouth and defects involving the hands and feet.
