HUMAN PHENOTYPE - ANNOTATIONS

The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) is downloaded weekly from http://compbio.charite.de/hudson/job/hpo/lastStableBuild/artifact/ontology/release/hp.obo. The file downloaded is considered the "last stable build" available for the ontology. For more about the HPO, view their website at http://www.human-phenotype-ontology.org/.

Term:Distal muscle weakness

Accession:HP:0002460 term browser browse the term
Definition:Reduced strength of the musculature of the distal extremities.
Comment:Typically, at onset the lower limbs are more affected than upper limbs. The distribution of weakness is often roughly symmetric.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: Distal limb muscle weakness;   Distal limb weakness;   Distal muscular weakness;   Distal paresis;   Muscle weakness, distal limbs, due to neuronopathy;   Weakness of distal muscles;   Weakness of outermost muscles
 related_synonym: DISTAL LIMB MUSCLE WEAKNESS DUE TO PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY
