Congenital myopathies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The congenital myopathies encompass a group of neuromuscular disorders with characteristic morphologic abnormalities in skeletal muscle, including nemaline myopathy, central core disease, multi-minicore disease, and myotubular myopathy. Giant steps have been made in our understanding of the molecular bases of these disorders, all of which show remarkable genetic heterogeneity. This review of congenital myopathies examines progress in defining clinical diagnostic criteria and novel genetic advances that have provided important clues regarding their pathogeneses.
