The distal myopathies are clinically, pathologically and genetically heterogenous. Thus far, seven types of distal myopathy have been linked to four chromosome loci. We recently examined four affected members from three generations of an autosomal dominant distal myopathy kindred. A muscle biopsy was performed on the index case. Muscle histopathology showed non-specific myopathic findings including increased variation in fiber size and increased internalized nuclei. No abnormal inclusions or… CONTINUE READING
