What is Centronuclear Myopathy? (Definition)
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Centronuclear myopathy is a condition which is identified by muscle weakness (myopathy) and wasting (atrophy) in the skeletal muscles or the muscles used for movement. The severity of centronuclear myopathy varies among affected individuals, even among members of the same family.
People with centronuclear myopathy generally start to experience muscle weakness at any time from birth to early adulthood. The muscle weakness slowly gains over time and can lead to delayed development of motor skills, such as crawling or walking; muscle pain during exercise; and difficulty walking. Some affected individuals may need wheelchair assistance as the muscles atrophy and weakness becomes more severe. In rare instances, the muscle weakness improves over time.
