By light microscopy we previously obtained immunocytochemical evidence for basal lamina (BL) abnormality of skeletal muscle in Fukuyama congenital muscular dystrophy (FCMD). To further elucidate the pathological involvement of the BL in FCMD, we examined by electron microscopy the skeletal muscle in 12 cases of FCMD, nine cases of age-matched neuromuscular diseases unrelated to FCMD, and a case of merosin-negative CMD (MCMD). We found that the BL of skeletal muscle fibres in all patients with… CONTINUE READING
