Glossary for Limp muscles in infant
Medical terms related to Limp muscles in infant or mentioned in this section include:
- 3-methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase deficiency: A rare inherited disorder where lack of a certain enzyme (3-methylcrotonyl-Coa carboxylase) stops proteins with the amino acid leucine being metabolized normally by the body. The leucine builds up in the body and causes damage to the brain and nervous system. The severity of the condition is variable with some cases being mild enough to be asymptomatic.
- Achondroplasia: A rare disease characterized by abnormal bone growth which results in short stature with short arms and legs, large head and characteristic facial features.
- Aicardi syndrome: A rare genetic disorder where the structure connecting the two halves of the brain fails to develop which results in seizures and eye abnormalities .
- Behavioral symptoms: Symptoms of personal behavior.
- Canavan disease: Rare genetic degenerative brain disease in infants.
- Centronuclear myopathy, congenital: A severe inherited form of muscle wasting disease which often results in infant death.
- Cerebral Palsy: Any brain disorder causing movement disability
- Child health symptoms: Symptoms related to pediatric (child) health.
- Ehlers danlos syndrome: An inherited disorder of the connective tissue causing it to become weak and fragile. Connective tissue is found in skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments and hence all of these may be affected by weakness
- Encephalitis: Infection of the brain (as a symptom)
- FG Syndrome: A rare genetic disorder characterized by anal abnormalities, reduced muscle tone and a prominent forehead.
- Face symptoms: Symptoms affecting the face
- Guillain-Barre syndrome: An acute condition which is characterized by polyradiculoneuropathy that affects the peripheral nervous system
- Head symptoms: Symptoms affecting the head or brain
- Hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy 3: A very rare inherited disorder affecting the peripheral and autonomic nervous system and characterized by reduced tear production, excessive sweating, poor body temperature control, blood pressure problems, impaired sensation and poor muscle control.
- Infant botulism food poisoning: Very dangerous food poisoning needing medical attention.
- Infant symptoms: Symptoms affecting babies and infants.
- Krabbe leukodystrophy: A rare inherited biochemical disorder involving the deficiency of an enzyme called galactocerebrosidase. It is a leukodystrophy which refers to a group of genetic disorders that affect the growth of the protective coating around the brain nerves.
- Leigh syndrome: A rare, progressive, neurological disorder characterized by the degeneration of the brain and impaired function of various body organs. The condition is caused by a systemic deficiency of the cytochrome C oxidase enzyme.
- Limping: Walking with a limp or other gait problem
- Marfan's syndrome: A genetic connective tissue disorder involving a defect of chromosome 15q21.1 which affects the production of the fibrillin needed to make connective tissue.
- Meningitis: Infection of the membrane around the brain (as a symptom)
- Menkes Disease: Genetic disease of copper deficiency.
- Movement symptoms: Changes to movement or motor abilities
- Muscle symptoms: Symptoms affecting the muscles of the body
- Muscle weakness: Weakness of the muscles or loss of tone
- Muscular Dystrophy: Any of various muscle wasting diseases
- Musculoskeletal symptoms: Symptoms affecting muscles or bones of the skeleton.
- Myasthenia Gravis: An autoimmune disorder which interferes with nerve impulses to muscles and hence results in weak, easily fatigued muscles.
- Myotonic Dystrophy: An inherited disorder characterized by progressive muscle weakness and wasting as well as eye defects, heart abnormalities and other anomalies. The severity of the condition is greatly variable. There are two type of myotonic dystrophy with type 1 being more severe than type 2.
- Nerve symptoms: Symptoms affecting the nerves
- Non-ketotic hyperglycinemia: A rare disorder of amino acid metabolism where glycine and proline are unable to be metabolized properly due to defects in the glycine cleavage system.
- Poliomyelitis: Dangerous virus now rare due to vaccination.
- Prader-Willi syndrome: A rare genetic disorder characterized by reduced muscle tone, obesity and small hands and feet.
- Sepsis: The presence of microorganisms in the blood circulation
- Shaken Baby Syndrome: A condition caused by violent shaking of a baby.
- Spinal Muscular Atrophy: A rare condition characterized by progressive degeneration of the spinal and brainstem motor neurons. During fetal development excess primary neurons are formed. The body automatically destroys the extra primary neurons so that only some survive and mature into neurons. In spinal muscular dystrophy, the process that destroys the excess primary neurons doesn't switch off and continues destroying the neurons resulting in progressive motor problems. Various types of the condition range from mild to severe enough to cause death within a couple of years of birth.
- Spinal Muscular Atrophy type I: Type of SMA, a genetic motor neuron disease affecting nerves and muscles.
- Tay Sachs Disease: A condition which is causes GM2 gangliosidosis
- Thyroid symptoms: Symptoms affecting the thyroid gland
- Traumatic Brain Injury: Brain injury from trauma or accident.
- Weakness: Symptoms causing weakness of the body
- Zellweger Syndrome: Zellweger spectrum disorders are a group of rare, genetic, multisystem disorders that were once thought to be separate entities. These disorders are now classified as different expressions (variants) of one disease process. Collectively, they form a spectrum or continuum of disease. Zellweger syndrome is the most severe form; neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy is the intermediate form; and infantile Refsum disease is the mildest form.
