Abstract

Symptoms suggestive of dysautonomia are often reported in Myotonic Dystrophy (MD) patients. 12 patients with MD underwent cardiovascular function testing with assay of plasma noradrenaline (NA) and adrenaline (A) in supine rest condition and after orthostatic and cold stimulus. Statistical analysis showed no differences between MD patients and an age and sex matched control group.
