Summaries for Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Distal, Autosomal Recessive, 4

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 76 Distal spinal muscular atrophy, autosomal recessive, 4: A neuromuscular disorder. Distal spinal muscular atrophy, also known as distal hereditary motor neuronopathy, represents a heterogeneous group of neuromuscular disorders caused by selective degeneration of motor neurons in the anterior horn of the spinal cord, without sensory deficit in the posterior horn. The overall clinical picture consists of a classical distal muscular atrophy syndrome in the legs without clinical sensory loss. The disease starts with weakness and wasting of distal muscles of the anterior tibial and peroneal compartments of the legs. Later on, weakness and atrophy may expand to the proximal muscles of the lower limbs and/or to the distal upper limbs. DSMA4 is characterized by childhood onset, generalized muscle weakness and atrophy with denervation and normal sensation. Bulbar symptoms and pyramidal signs are absent.

MalaCards based summary : Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Distal, Autosomal Recessive, 4, also known as dsma4, is related to motor neuron disease, and has symptoms including waddling gait An important gene associated with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Distal, Autosomal Recessive, 4 is PLEKHG5 (Pleckstrin Homology And RhoGEF Domain Containing G5). Affiliated tissues include spinal cord, and related phenotypes are scoliosis and hyperlordosis
