Abstract

Steinert's disease (SD) is a rare (3-5/100000) myotonic myopathy responsible for chronic restrictive respiratory insujfi-cency and dilatative myocardiopathy. The authors report the case of a 52 years old female patient with SD who underwent laparoscopic colecystectectomy for cholelithiasis. Postoperative course was uneventful and the patient was discharged after 4 days. Laparoscopic surgery was effective and safe in the treatment of this pathology.
