  • Camurati-engelmann disease

    Camurati-Engelmann disease is a rare genetic disorder characterized by progressive widening and malformation of the shafts of the long bones (diaphyseal dysplasia). Major symptoms may include bone pain, particularly in the legs; skeletal abnormalities; and/or weakness and underdevelopment (hypoplasia) of various muscles. Pain and weakness of the leg muscles may result in an unusual "waddling" walk (gait). Camurati-Engelmann disease is inherite  Read More

    Carnitine palmitoyltransferase I - CPT I deficiency is a condition that prevents the body from using certain fats for energy, particularly during periods without food (fasting). The severity of this condition varies among affected individuals.Signs and symptoms of CPT I deficiency often appear during early childhood.Affected individuals usually have low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and a low level of ketones  Read More

  • Duchenne-erb syndrome

    Brachial plexus palsy, also known as Erb's palsy, is a paralysis or weakness of the arm caused by an injury to one or more nerves that control and supply the muscles of the shoulder and upper extremities (upper brachial plexus). It is more commonly seen in newborns (neonates) and is often the result of a difficult delivery. When it occurs in adults, the cause typically is an injury that has caused stretching, tearing or other trauma to the bra  Read More

    Werdnig-Hoffmann disease, also known as spinal muscular atrophy type 1 (SMA1), is a hereditary neuromuscular condition that damages the nerve cells that regulate voluntary muscles.Without therapy, SMA1 symptoms, which include increased muscle weakness and poor muscle tone as a result of the death of lower motor neurons in the spinal cord and brain stem, become visible before the age of six months.Breathing  Read More

  • Spinal muscular atrophy type iii

    Spinal muscular atrophy type iii, a rare hereditary disorder characterised by the progressive loss of motor neurons-the nerve cells that regulate voluntary movement-causes muscle weakness and wasting. Type 3 is a milder type of SMA.Although there is currently no cure for SMA type 3, since 2016 there have been medicines that can delay or even stop the disease's main forms from progressing.Treatment:  Read More
