A woman had severe psychomotor retardation, epilepsy, rigidity, and chorioretinitis. Magnetic resonance imaging showed cerebellar and cerebral atrophy and hypointensities in T2-weighted images of the thalami and basal ganglia. Muscle biopsy documented size variations in rounded muscle fibers, fibrosis, and minicores on electron microscopy. Merosin staining was normal. These hitherto unreported features do not permit classification of our patient within the current types of encephalomyopathy and congenital muscular dystrophies.
