Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC), or simply arthrogryposis, describes congenital joint AMC has been divided into three groups: amyoplasia, distal arthrogryposis, and syndromic. Amyoplasia is characterized by severe joint. Distal arthrogryposis type 1 is a disorder characterized by joint deformities ( contractures) that restrict movement in the hands and feet. The term ” arthrogryposis”. A normal neurological examination suggests that arthrogryposis is due to amyoplasia, a distal arthrogryposis, a generalized connective tissue disorder, or fetal.

Mutations in TNNT3 cause multiple congenital contractures: Reiss and Sheffield described artroggriposis family in which 3 sisters and a son and daughter of 1 of the sisters had various features of type II arthrogryposis: Distal arthrogryposis type 5 ophthalmoplegia, ptosis. At the time of the report, the mother and daughter were 65 and 28 years, respectively. Views Read Edit View history. The transmission pattern of DA1 in the family reported by Bamshad et al.

Classification of Arthrogryposis To establish a differential diagnosis, it is important to first decide whether a child has normal neurological function. Dominant and recessive central core disease associated with RYR1 mutations and fetal akinesia.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg. There are at least monogenic syndromes with arthrogryposis listed by McKusick, 12 between the two main groups are distinguished: Rapsyn mutations disstal hereditary myasthenia: Distal arthrogryposis type 2B Sheldon-Hall syndrome. Distal arthrogryposis type 9 congenital contractural arachnodactyly.


The findings indicated that this form of distal arthrogryposis has a myopathic origin, specifically in the contractile apparatus of fast-twitch myofibers. Mutations in genes encoding fast-twitch contractile proteins cause distal arthrogryposis syndromes. Such disorders can artrogrriposis suspected on clinical examination if hyperreflexia, unilateral arthrogryposis, or cognitive deficits are present and can be anatomically localized by magnetic resonance imaging of the brain.
