MYASTHENIC SYNDROME, CONGENITAL, 8; CMS8


Alternate names

MYASTHENIC SYNDROME, CONGENITAL, 8; CMS8 Is also known as cmsppd, myasthenic syndrome, congenital, due to agrin deficiency, myasthenic syndrome, congenital, with pre- and postsynaptic defects

Description

Congenital myasthenic syndromes are genetic disorders of the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) that are classified by the site of the transmission defect: presynaptic, synaptic, and postsynaptic. CMS8 is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by prominent defects of both the pre- and postsynaptic regions. Affected individuals have onset of muscle weakness in early childhood; the severity of the weakness and muscles affected is variable (summary by Maselli et al., 2012).For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of CMS, see CMS1A (OMIM ).

Most common symptoms of MYASTHENIC SYNDROME, CONGENITAL, 8; CMS8

  • Muscle weakness
  • Ptosis
  • High palate
  • Respiratory insufficiency
  • Dyspnea

PRESYNAPTIC CONGENITAL MYASTHENIC SYNDROMES


Description

Myasthenia gravis is a disease that causes weakness in the muscles under your control. It happens because of a problem in communication between your nerves and muscles. Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease. Your body's own immune system makes antibodies that block or change some of the nerve signals to your muscles. This makes your muscles weaker. Common symptoms are trouble with eye and eyelid movement, facial expression and swallowing. But it can also affect other muscles. The weakness gets worse with activity, and better with rest. There are medicines to help improve nerve-to-muscle messages and make muscles stronger. With treatment, the muscle weakness often gets much better. Other drugs keep your body from making so many abnormal antibodies. There are also treatments which filter abnormal antibodies from the blood or add healthy antibodies from donated blood. Sometimes surgery to take out the thymus gland helps. For some people, myasthenia gravis can go into remission and they do not need medicines. The remission can be temporary or permanent. If you have myasthenia gravis, it is important to follow your treatment plan. If you do, you can expect your life to be normal or close to it.
