Abstract

8 patients with progressive myoclonic epilepsy have been studied. Muscle biopsies showed polysaccharide accumulation in branched form, mitochondrial alteration, lipid droplets and lipofucsin bodies. " Muscle Lafora bodies" were present in two cases. A peculiar muscle cytoskeleton appearance has been seen, suggesting an abnormal physico-chemical state of the newly observed filaments that joins Z-bands among them and with the plasma membrane.
