BACKGROUND Mutations in the gene encoding mitofusin 2 (MFN2) cause Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2 (CMT2), with heterogeneity concerning severity and associated clinical features. OBJECTIVE To describe MFN2 mutations and associated phenotypes in patients with hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy (HMSN). DESIGN Direct sequencing of the MFN2 gene(More)
Myosin Storage Myopathies (MSM) have emerged as a new group of inherited myopathies with heterogenous clinical severity and age of onset. We have identified in a woman and her daughter, a pLeu1793Pro mutation in MYH7. This mutation has already been reported to be associated with MSM presenting as neonatal hypotony. Our index case complained of proximal(More)
Herein, we report a new case of Danon's disease in a 41-year-old Frenchman. This patient displays the typical clinical triad, with cardiomyopathy, mental retardation and myopathy, and a vacuolar myopathy without acid alpha-glucosidase deficiency. He has also developed a diffuse chorio-capillary ocular atrophy, and represents the second case of successful(More)
Defects in TRIM32 were reported in limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2H (LGMD2H), sarcotubular myopathies (STM) and in Bardet-Biedl syndrome. Few cases have been described to date in LGMD2H/STM, but this gene is not systematically analysed because of the absence of specific signs and difficulties in protein analysis. By using high-throughput variants(More)
BACKGROUND Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy type 1(FSHD1) is an autosomal dominant disorder associated with the contraction of D4Z4 less than 11 repeat units (RUs) on chromosome 4q35. Penetrance in the range of the largest alleles is poorly known. Our objective was to study the penetrance of FSHD1 in patients carrying alleles ranging between 6 to10(More)
BACKGROUND Both type 1 myotonic dystrophy (MD1) and Brugada syndrome (BrS) may be complicated by conduction disturbances and sudden death. Spontaneous BrS has been observed in MD1 patients, but the prevalence of drug-induced BrS in MD1 is unknown. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to prospectively assess the prevalence of type 1 ST elevation as(More)
INTRODUCTION This exploratory study aimed to evaluate the electrophysiological profiles of patients with myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) and to assess their correlations with genotype and phenotype. METHODS Twenty-two patients with genetically confirmed DM1 were included. Global motor testing score, severity of myotonia, occurrence of cardiac(More)
