We describe a case of a limb-girdle myopathy presenting with myoglobinuria. A partial deficiency of muscle carnitine palmitoyltransferase (EC 2.3.1.21) may also have been present. All "muscle-type" serum enzymes were markedly increased (to between 30- and 400-fold their respective upper reference limits) and creatine kinase (EC 2.7.3.2) isoenzyme 2 (CK-MB) was increased 130-fold but was still less than 2% of the total creatine kinase activity. The isoenzyme pattern of lactate dehydrogenase (EC… CONTINUE READING
