Myopathia distalis tarda hereditaria

  • L. Welander


Kugelberg (1947) found certain positive electromyographic criteria for the diagnosis of primary myopathies. Without this discovery there is no reason to believe that the dystrophy-simulating juvenile muscular atrophy would have been distinguished in Sweden. Also for further investigations and differential diagnosis of distal late myopathy this discovery was invaluable.
