NIH Rare Diseases:46 Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (opmd) is a genetic disorder characterized by slowly progressing muscle disease (myopathy) affecting the muscles of the upper eyelids and the throat. onset is typically during adulthood, most often between 40 and 60 years of age. symptoms may include: eyelid drooping (ptosis), arm and leg weakness, and difficulty swallowing (dysphagia). there are two types of opmd, distinguished by their patterns of inheritance. they are known as the autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive types. both types are caused by mutations in the pabpn1 gene.treatment depends on the signs and symptoms present in each individual. ptosis and dysphagia can be managed with surgery; however, recurrence of symptoms commonly occurs 5-15 years after intervention. last updated: 6/14/2016
MalaCards based summary: Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy, also known as muscular dystrophy, oculopharyngeal, is related to muscular dystrophy and dysphagia, and has symptoms including ptosis, ophthalmoparesis and abnormality of the pharynx. An important gene associated with Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy is PABPN1 (Poly(A) Binding Protein Nuclear 1), and among its related pathways is C-MYB transcription factor network. Affiliated tissues include tongue, skeletal muscle and eye.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:68 Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy: A form of late-onset slowly progressive myopathy characterized by eyelid ptosis, dysphagia and, sometimes by other cranial and limb- muscle involvement.
Genetics Home Reference:24 Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy is a genetic condition characterized by muscle weakness that begins in adulthood, typically after age 40. The first symptom in people with this disorder is usually droopy eyelids (ptosis), followed by difficulty swallowing (dysphagia). The swallowing difficulties begin with food, but as the condition progresses, liquids can be difficult to swallow as well. Many people with this condition have weakness and wasting (atrophy) of the tongue. These problems with food intake may cause malnutrition. Some affected individuals also have weakness in other facial muscles.
