Myopathy is a pathology of the muscle function, without clinical and instrumental signs that are involved the central nervous system and the peripheral one. In all pathologies causing a damage of the muscle fibres, a release of enzymes as GOT, GPT, LDH, aldolase, CPK occurs. The most significant enzyme for the muscle damage is CPK. Studies state that an increase of the CPKemia is not always an expression of muscle damages, but there are physiological changes in relation to the age, physical activities and racial variations. By the way, it is necessary to focus our attention on this matter. Authors, starting from the observation of lots of cases under their studies, have descripted two of them, that up to their careful observation could reveal significant.
