Late components of motor unit potentials in central core disease.

Abstract

Electromyographic studies in five patients suffering from central core disease are presented. A variable amount of late components of motor unit potentials were found in all of them, as others have found in Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This suggests the existence of collateral innervation of the resultant fragments of the muscular fibre splitting present in this disorder.
