Case of dynamin 2 mutation-related sporadic centronuclearmyopath y with peripheral neuropathy


A 53-year-old man presented with bilateral ptosis, diffuse muscle weakness andeasy fatigability, and was admitted to Toyonaka Municipal Hospital, Osaka,Japan. The patient was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis in his childhood. Sincethen, he had been developing muscle weakness with atrophy. A nerve conductionstudy showed motor and sensory neuropathy. Repetitive stimulation of his acces-sory nerve at 3 Hz showed 30.4% attenuation. We suspected that his symptomswere a result of myasthenia gravis and/or Guillain–Barre syndrome, and startedgamma globulin therapy and prednisolone. Because muscle weakness did notrespond to our therapy, we carried out muscle biopsy. He was then diagnosed withcentronuclear myopathy. Genetic analysis showed the presence of dynamin 2mutation.
