Re: DDx scapula alata
hello friends this is scapula alata
Winging of Scapula due to injury to long thoracic nerve
yes, bilateral winged scapula!
winged scapula caused by damaging the long thoracic nerve
winging of scapula on both sides
Yes, there is winging of both scapulae due to fascioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy.
Winging is a result of weakness of thoracoscapular muscles, which can be a result of a nerve lesion but can also be inherited (Landouzy-Dejerine disease; autosomal dominant (gene locus 4q35)).
