All patients had calf hypertrophy and normal strength in gastrocnemius-soleus, whereas the quadriceps biopsied were all atrophied and weak. The patients' ages ranged from 4 to 11 years. The pathological and histochemical changes were assessed semi-quantitatively. Comparison of the gastrocnemius and quadriceps… CONTINUE READING
