Glossary for Waddling gait

Medical terms related to Waddling gait or mentioned in this section include:

  • BEEC: A rare syndrome characterized by a birth defect where the bladder is inside out and protrudes from the lower abdominal wall. The urethra and genitals are also abnormally formed. The degree of malformation is variable.
  • Brain symptoms: Symptoms affecting the brain
  • Camurat-Engelmann disease, type 2: A rare syndrome characterized by a range of abnormalities including waddling gait, muscle weakness, knee and hip contractures, delayed puberty and leg pain.
  • Camurati Engelmann disease, type 2: A rare disorder (described in two patients) which has similar symptoms to the genetic condition called Camurati Engelmann disease but the genetic defect responsible for type 1 is not present in type 2. Type 2 has additional bone abnormalities which were noted on radiographs. Patients tend to suffer flare-ups of their condition which is accompanied by severe pain which may leave the patient incapacitated. Flare-ups can be triggered or made worse by stress, exhaustion, exercise, growth spurts, standing too long, walking too long, infection, illness, injury, surgery, cold weather and sudden changes in air pressure.
  • Camurati-Engelmann Disease: A very rare genetic disease thickening of areas of bone causing pain, weakness and wasting. Usually affects the legs during childhood. Also called diaphyseal dysplasia.
  • Cerebral Palsy: Any brain disorder causing movement disability
  • Childhood hypophosphatasia: An inherited bone disorder due to an inborn error of metabolism characterized by a deficiency of alkaline phosphate which results in loss of deciduous teeth before the age of 5 as well as muscle and bone problems - childhood onset.
  • Congenital Disorder of Glycosylation, Type 1o: A very rare inherited metabolic disorder where defective carbohydrate compounds are attached to glycoproteins and thus impairing glycoprotein function. Type 1O has a defect in the DPM3 gene which results in decreased activity of an enzyme called dolichol-phosphage-mannose (Dol-P-M).
  • Difficulty walking: Where ones has a problem with mobilizing on ones feet
  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy: An inherited degenerative disease of the muscles which progresses rapidly compared to other muscle wasting diseases.
  • Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen Syndrome: A rare genetic bone growth disorder characterized by short stature and other skeletal deformities.
  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy 1: A rare inherited condition characterized mainly by slowly progressive muscle wasting which tends to start during childhood as well as joint contractures and heart conduction defects. Type 1 is linked to a defect on chromosome Xq28. Because the condition is inherited in a X-linked manner, males tend to be affected but female carriers may have only the potentially fatal heart conduction disorder without any muscle symptoms.
  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy 2: A rare inherited condition characterized mainly by slowly progressive muscle wasting which tends to start during childhood as well as joint contractures and heart conduction defects. Type 2 is linked to a defect on chromosome 1q21.2. Because the condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner so males and females may be affected.
  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy 3: A rare inherited condition characterized mainly by slowly progressive muscle wasting which tends to start during childhood as well as joint contractures. Type 3 is linked to a defect on chromosome 1q21.2. Because the condition is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner so males and females may be affected. Type 3 tends to not have any heart involvement.
  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy 4: A rare inherited condition characterized mainly by slowly progressive muscle wasting which tends to start during childhood as well as joint contractures and heart problems. Type 4 is linked to a defect on chromosome 6q25. Because the condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner so males and females may be affected.
  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy 5: A rare inherited condition characterized mainly by slowly progressive muscle wasting which tends to start during childhood as well as joint contractures and heart problems. Type 5 is linked to a defect on chromosome 14q23. Because the condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner so males and females may be affected.
  • Emery-Dreifuss Syndrome: An hereditary, slowly progressive muscular dystrophy which starts during childhood. The condition is marked by joint contractures and conduction disorders of the heart.
  • Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy, X-linked: A muscle wasting disorder mainly involving the muscles in the arms, legs, face, neck, spine and heart. Symptoms generally only occur in males but female carriers may have some symptoms.
  • Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy, dominant type: A rare disorder characterized by slowly-progressing weakness and wasting of skeletal and heart muscles. The dominant form of the disease is associated with greater variability of symptoms.
  • Epiphyseal dysplasia, multiple: Abnormalities in the ends of a number of bones resulting in the early onset of osteoarthrosis and joint pain. There are 6 different subtypes of the disease, with each caused by a mutation in a different gene.
  • Epiphyseal dysplasia, multiple, 3: Abnormalities in the ends of a number of bones resulting in the early onset of osteoarthrosis and joint pain. The knees and ankles are usually the most affected joints. Mild weakness of muscles in the upper arms and legs was also sometimes present. It is believed to be caused by a defect in the COL9A3 gene.
  • Filaminopathy, autosomal dominant: A rare dominantly inherited muscle disease characterized slow-progressing muscle weakness. The upper legs seemed to be the most affected with the arms being less involved.
  • Gait disorder: Gait disorder refers to a variety of disorders of walking.
  • Head symptoms: Symptoms affecting the head or brain
  • Hypophosphatemic rickets: A rare genetic type of rickets involving defective phosphate transport and vitamin D metabolism in the kidneys. Poor calcium absorption from the intestines leads to bone softening.
  • Jansen type metaphyseal chondrodysplasia: A rare genetic disorder characterized by extremely short stature, unusual face and skeletal and joint abnormalities.
  • Juvenile Paget's Disease:
  • Koller syndrome: A rare syndrome involving thickened bones and dry skin with characteristic fish-like scales.
