Why is it important?

Is the largest series reported and beside index cases we studied the family for the presence of reduced allele, all was done scoring both patient and relatives with the clinical score we previously studied and validated in Muscle&Nerve 2010.


This is study is important if someone will do a clinical study in children or if these patients will undergo genetic counseling
