A careful review of the relevant literature is followed by a presentation of 6 cases of Steinert's disease. Some pathogenic explanations are attempted by the authors who refer to the alterations in bone calcification, intramuscular calcifications and myotonia and to a metabolic disorder with a large amount of acid mucopolysaccharides in the tissues of myotonic patients. Multiple skeletal anomalies as well as extraskeletal ones are considered to be characteristics of this disease.
