This disorder segregates as an autosomal dominant with greatly variable penetrance. Dysphagia is usually manageable with conservative dietary measures. Copies of the survival motor neuron gene in spinal muscular atrophy: Clinical diagnosis can be difficult in mild cases, where cataracts may be the only manifestation Bundey et al.

Ethnicity and myotonic dystrophy: The highest levels of instability were observed in cultured kidney cells, whereas the transgene remained relatively stable in eye cells and very stable in lung cells, paralleling the previous in vivo observations. Detection of an unstable fragment of DNA specific to individuals with myotonic dystrophy.

Obstetric problems were inversely correlated with age at onset of maternal DM, while no effect of age at delivery or birth order on gestational outcome was seen.

There was no correlation between number of pathologic CTG repeats and white matter lesions, and there was no correlation between intellectual impairment and white matter lesions, except in 1 patient who had a difficult birth and temporal lobe epilepsy. Tight linkage of apolipoprotein C2 to myotonic dystrophy on chromosome Regression analysis predicted that the absolute size of the CTG repeat may not be a good indicator of the expected age of onset of symptoms when the size of the repeat is 0.


This segregation distortion may act as a mechanism to maintain alleles in the population that lie at the larger end of the normal range in the trinucleotide repeat disorders. Sperm from a premutation carrier demonstrated a range of diverse alleles positively skewed toward expansion.


Richards and Sutherland indicated that the instability of the DM element extends beyond meiotic instability in affected pedigrees to mitotic tippo, manifest as somatic variation–a smear of bands evident in some affected persons. The authors stated that ‘the concept of myotonic dystrophy as a pure myopathy can no longer be sustained.

Overall, the contribution of the interrupted alleles to the phenotype was uncertain.

Associated mitochondrial mutations might help account for the maternal inheritance pattern and the early onset of the congenital form. Timchenko commented on the study of Mahadevan et al.

Eighty-three fetuses were examined. Diagnostic value of ophthalmologic findings in myotonic dystrophy: In addition, there is early involvement of the muscles of the head and neck.

Quantitative tiipo of survival motor neuron copies: Lotz and van der Meyden found no single case of DM in an indigenous Negroid or Khoisan person from southern Africa, despite a survey representing a population of more than 30 million Ashizawa and Epstein, Are muscle fibers denervated in myotonic dystrophy? Childhood and congenital myotonic dystrophy affected the son and the daughter of one sister, with CTG triplet repeats in lymphocytes of and 1, respectively.


Large expanded CTG repeats were detected and showed marked somatic heterogeneity between DM1 cases and in cortical brain regions analyzed. This led to the identification of the gene which Boucher et al. RNA leaching of transcription factors disrupts transcription in myotonic dystrophy.

Distrofia miotonica tipo 1: Reporte de un caso de un paciente Colombiano.

Two of the patients were sibs. Gastroparesis in neonatal myotonic dystrophy.

Heart-specific overexpression of CUGBP1 reproduces functional and molecular abnormalities of myotonic dystrophy type 1.

No evidence of imprinting was found involving the expression of the DM kinase gene.

They cited several reports e. Universal findings were language delay, hypotonia, and delayed motor development. Detection of linkage disequilibrium between the myotonic dystrophy miotonifa and a new polymorphic DNA marker. Myotonic dystrophy patients who are minimally affected have at least 50 repeats, while more severely affected patients have expansion of the repeat-containing segment up to several kilobase pairs.
