Examples of "hypotonia"
An abnormal Landau reflex may indicate hypotonia or hypertonia and may indicate a motor development issue.
Presenting in infancy, symptoms include lack of appetite, vomiting, dehydration, hypotonia and failure to thrive.
dehydration, malnutrition, hypoglycemia, hypotonia, metabolic acidosis, ketoacidosis, hyperammonemia, and if left untreated, death.
Hypotonia is a common finding. Seizures are present in about half of individuals.
Neurological symptoms, such as developmental decline, hypotonia, and mental retardation have also been reported.
Hypotonia is a common finding. Around 10% of people with distal 18q- have seizures.
The approach to diagnosing the cause of hypotonia (as with all syndromes in neurology) is first localization. The physician must first determine if the hypotonia is due to muscle, neuromuscular junction, nerve, or central cause. This will narrow the possible causes. If the cause of the hypotonia is found to lie in the brain, then it can be classified as a cerebral palsy. If the cause is localized to the muscles, it can be classified as a muscular dystrophy. If the cause is thought to be in the nerves, it is call hypotonia due to polyneuropathy. Many cases cannot be definitively diagnosed.
Hypotonia, commonly known as floppy baby syndrome, is a state of low muscle tone (the amount of tension or resistance to stretch in a muscle), often involving reduced muscle strength. Hypotonia is not a specific medical disorder, but a potential manifestation of many different diseases and disorders that affect motor nerve control by the brain or muscle strength. Recognizing hypotonia, even in early infancy, is usually relatively straightforward, but diagnosing the underlying cause can be difficult and often unsuccessful. The long-term effects of hypotonia on a child's development and later life depend primarily on the severity of the muscle weakness and the nature of the cause. Some disorders have a specific treatment but the principal treatment for most hypotonia of idiopathic or neurologic cause is physical therapy, occupational therapy for remediation, and/or music therapy.
Hypotonia and/or hypertonia are present in nearly all individuals with tetrasomy 18p. Approximately 25% have a seizure disorder.
Hypotonia is frequently seen in the ring 18 population. Seizures, though uncommon, have been reported in people with ring 18.
MEN2B is additionally characterized by the presence of mucocutaneous neuroma, gastrointestinal symptoms (e.g. constipation and flatulence), and muscular hypotonia.
The lateral meningocele syndrome is a very rare skeletal disorder with facial anomalies, hypotonia and meningocele-related neurologic dysfunction.
Mutations in this gene have been linked to inherited mitochondrial DNA depletion syndromes, neonatal liver failure, nystagmus and hypotonia.
This disorder causes neurological problems, including mental retardation, brain atrophy and ventricular dilation, myoclonus, hypotonia, and epilepsy.
Medical conditions include frequent ear infection, hearing loss, hypotonia, developmental problems, respiratory problems, eating difficulties, light sensitivity, and esophageal reflux.
Table of protein coding genes involved in 22q13 deletion syndrome (based on Human Genome Browser – hg38 assembly ). Underline identifies 13 genes that are associated with autism. Bold identifies genes associated with hypotonia (based on Human Phenotype Browser search for 'hypotonia' and the OMIM database ).
Qazi–Markouizos syndrome is a rare hereditary condition characterized by non-progressive, congenital hypotonia, severe intellectual disability, an increased proportion of type 2 muscle fibers, which additionally exhibited increased size, as well as dysharmonic skeletal maturation. To date, the molecular mechanism of Qazi–Markouizos syndrome, which is also known as Puerto Rican infant hypotonia syndrome, remains unknown.
Signs of overdose range through mental confusion, dysarthria, paradoxical reactions, drowsiness, hypotonia, ataxia, hypotension, hypnotic state, coma, cardiovascular depression, respiratory depression, and death.
There is currently no known treatment or cure for most (or perhaps all) causes of hypotonia, and objective manifestations can be lifelong. The outcome in any particular case of hypotonia depends largely on the nature of the underlying disease. In some cases, muscle tone improves over time, or the patient may learn or devise coping mechanisms that enable them to overcome the most disabling aspects of the disorder. However, hypotonia caused by cerebellar dysfunction or motor neuron diseases can be progressive and life-threatening.
Young–Simpson syndrome (YSS) is a rare congenital disorder with symptoms including hypothyroidism, heart defects, facial dysmorphism, cryptorchidism in males, hypotonia, mental retardation and postnatal growth retardation.
