Anomalies of the skeleton and soft tissues of the hand can be caused by congenital malformations or deformities acquired during growth. The most important malformations are associated with syndactyly, brachydactyly, oligodactyly, polydactyly, aphalangia, constriction rings, hypoplasia/aplasia of the thumb.
Arthrogryposis is a condition that impacts some babies at birth. The joints don't move very much or might not move at all. This frequently impacts the arms and legs. Often the muscles responsible for moving the joints are thin, weak, or missing. This results in joint contractures (i.e., tight joints) Pelvic dysplasia-arthrogryposis of lower limbs syndrome is a rare, genetic, dysostosis syndrome characterized by intrauterine growth restriction, short stature (with short lower segment), lower limb joint contractures and muscular hypotrophy, narrow, small pelvis, lumbar hyperlordosis with scoliosis, and foot deformity (short, overlapping toes) BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Arthrogryposis is among the malformations of congenital Zika syndrome. Similar to the brain, there might exist a spectrum of spinal cord abnormalities. The purpose of this study was to explore and describe in detail the MR imaging features found in the spinal cords, nerve roots, and brains of children with congenital Zika syndrome with and without arthrogryposis

Congenital Dislocation of the Knee is a congenital knee condition that is primarily seen in patients with myelomingocele, arthrogryposis, or Larsen's syndrome. Diagnosis is made clinically with a hyperextended knee at birth. Treatment is a trial of reduction with manual manipulation and casting until the age of 3 months The reported incidence of scoliosis in arthrogryposis varies from 30% to 67% and, in most cases, the curves progress rapidly and become stiff from early age. The authors report six cases of scoliosis in arthrogryposis to assess the role of surgical treatment. Six cases (3 males, 3 females; mean age at surgery 13.2 years) with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita associated with the. Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC) or Amyoplasia. Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC), also called a myoplasia, is the most common type of arthrogryposis.

Multiminicore disease is a disorder that primarily affects muscles used for movement (skeletal muscles). This condition causes muscle weakness and related health problems that range from mild to life-threatening.Researchers have identified at least four forms of multiminicore disease, which can be distinguished by their characteristic signs and symptoms . CKD is rare, but is often associated with arthrogryposis, Larsen syndrome, or congenital knee and hip differences. When associated, it is more resistant to non-operative treatment
Trismus pseudocamptodactyly syndrome is a very rare autosomal dominant inherited disorder characterized by the inability to completely open the mouth (trismus) and the presence of abnormally short tendon units causing the fingers to curve (camptodactyly). Early diagnosis and management of this condition is important to prevent facial deformities in the patient . 362) Atelosteogenesis, Type I: Lethal skeletal dysplasia characterized by severe limb shortening and deficient ossification of the bones, resulting in micromelic dwarfism (see. Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC) is a condition that leads to a limited range of joint motion. Children born with AMC often experience joint stiffness (also known as joint contracture) and muscle weakness. One in 3,000 children are born with arthrogryposis, which affects males and females equally. More Contact Options Arthrogryposis and multiple pterygium syndrome are characterized by limitation of flexion or extension of the limbs.
