REVIEW
Thomas Y K Chan
Haff disease is a rare syndrome of unexplained myalgia and rhabdomyolysis occurring within 24 h of consumption of certain types of cooked freshwater fish or crustacean. It is caused by a yet unidentified heat-stable toxin. In the present review of published case studies and official press releases, the main objective is to report the emergence and epidemiology of Haff disease in China. Haff disease first occurred in Beijing in 2000 and in Lianzhou and Liannan, Guangdong Province in 2009. Subsequent outbreaks mostly occurred in the Jiangsu Province-Nanjing, Yangzhou, Huai'an, and Yancheng...

REVIEW
Michael D Stubblefield
Radiation fibrosis syndrome describes the multiple neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, visceral, and other late effects that result from radiation-induced fibrosis. Radiation can damage the spinal cord, nerve roots, plexus, local peripheral nerves, and muscles within the radiation field. This constellation is known as a "myelo-radiculo-plexo-neuro-myopathy" and can result in pain, sensory loss, weakness, and other signs and symptoms. Although there is no curative treatment for radiation damage, supportive management of symptoms can be helpful in restoring and maintaining function and quality of life...

PURPOSE: Statins are widely used by older persons in primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. Although serious adverse events are rare, many statin users report mild muscle pain and/or muscle weakness. It's unclear what impact statins exert on a patient's daily life. Research on statin related side effects in older persons is relatively scarce. We therefore investigated the relation between statin use and self-reported hindering muscle complaints in older persons in the general population...

Entrapment neuropathies of the fibular nerve and its branches are often underdiagnosed due to the lack of reliable diagnosis using clinical examination and electrophysiologic evaluation. Most fibular nerve compressions may be classified into 2 broad categories: (a) mechanical causes, which occur at fibrous or fibro-osseous tunnels, and (b) dynamic causes related to nerve injury during specific limb positioning. Foot drop resulting from weakness of the dorsiflexor muscles of the foot is a relatively uncommon presentation and closely related to L5 neuropathy caused by a disc herniation...

Patellofemoral disorders, commonly encountered in sports and orthopedic rehabilitation settings, may result from dysfunction in patellofemoral joint compression. Osseous and soft tissue factors, as well as the mechanical interaction of the two, contribute to increased patellofemoral compression and pain. Treatment of patellofemoral compressive issues is based on identification of contributory impairments. Use of reliable tests and measures is essential in detecting impairments in hip flexor, quadriceps, iliotibial band, hamstrings, and gastrocnemius flexibility, as well as in joint mobility, myofascial restrictions, and proximal muscle weakness...

A 29-year-old man experienced right shoulder pain and weakness following a forced abduction and external rotation motion performed during an Australian football game. The following morning, the sports medicine physician referred the player for magnetic resonance imaging to exclude infraspinatus rupture, given the external rotation strength deficit. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a low-grade partial tear of the medial infraspinatus muscle. J Orthop Sports Phys Ther 2016;46(12):1087. doi:10.2519/jospt.2016...

Rupture of the proximal tendon enthesis of the hamstring muscle (ICM) accounts for approximately 10% of all injuries of the ICM. It occurs most commonly in athletes and active middle-aged individuals. The complete rupture of all three tendons in active patients is generally seen as an indication for surgical repair of the tendon enthesis; however, the correct diagnosis is often not reached in a timely manner. This can lead to prolonged symptoms with pain, weakness and neuralgia. Operative treatment consists of anchor repair of the tendons resulting in good clinical outcome in several case series...

A 79 year-old female was admitted to our hospital because of high serum creatine kinase level together with proximal muscle weakness and pain on grasping. MRI revealed inflammatory changes in femoral muscles on both sides. Muscle biopsy showed size irregularity of muscle cells, and necrosis and regeneration of fibers. Study of antibodies was also consistent with the diagnostic criteria of anti-signal recognition particle (anti-SRP) antibody-positive myopathy. On admission, the patient required pericardiocentesis for the management of exudative pericarditis...

OBJECTIVES: Muscle strength is an important determinant of physical function in women with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Serum biomarkers of inflammation, including interleukin-6 (IL-6) and C-Reactive Protein (CRP), are associated with differences in muscle strength among individuals without rheumatologic disease. We examined whether serum levels of IL-6 and CRP are associated with upper and lower extremity muscle strength among adult women with SLE. METHODS: One hundred thirty-six women with SLE participated in this cross-sectional study...

INTRODUCTION: Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy-2L (LGMD2L) is an autosomal recessive muscular dystrophy caused by pathogenic variants in anoctamin-5 (ANO5). The disorder is characterized by weakness of the hip and shoulder girdles and of the lower limbs, with muscle atrophy. METHODS: We describe a woman with progressive weakness beginning at age 22 years in conjunction with back pain and myoglobinuria during physical exertion. Her serum CK levels ranged from 1,200-8,000 IU/L between the ages 22 and 34 years, and she was seen for a constant steady decline in muscle strength, which led to consultation for genetic testing...

Ischemic monomelic neuropathy is an uncommon complication associated with the creation of arteriovenous (AV) fistula for hemodialysis. After placement of an arteriovenous fistula, there can be shunting of arterial blood away from the distal extremity resulting in damage to distal nerve fibers with acute neurologic symptoms. It can present with global muscle pain, weakness, and a warm hand with palpable pulses starting within the 1 st h after the creation of the AV fistula. It is a devastating complication and can result in permanent disability...

INTRODUCTION: Young military Service Members with traumatic unilateral lower limb amputations may be at a high risk for developing knee osteoarthritis (OA). There is growing evidence for potential influence and predictive value of nonsystemic risk factors on development and progression of primary knee OA in older adults. Proposed factors include chronic knee pain, obesity, abnormal knee joint mechanics, muscle weakness, previous knee trauma, and altered physical activity level. However, there is limited information available regarding whether such nonsystemic risk factors could also be responsible for the increased risk of knee OA after traumatic, unilateral lower limb amputation in young military Service Members...
