PURPOSE OF REVIEW This review outlines recent advances in clinical, genetic and molecular aspects of skeletal muscle channelopathies. RECENT FINDINGS A new molecular genetic classification of skeletal muscle channelopathies has now emerged. This genetic classification complements previous clinical classifications. It is evident that there is considerable phenotypic diversity associated with dysfunction of a given muscle ion channel. Treatment response is likely to be related to genotype. DNA… CONTINUE READING
