13 Possible Causes for Creatine Kinase Normal or Increased, Recurrent Pneumonia due to Aspiration

  • Oculo-Pharyngo-Distal Myopathy

    Oculopharyngodistal myopathy is a rare type of hereditary myopathy characterised pathologically by the changes of muscular dystrophy with rimmed vacuoles and intra-muscular tubulofilamentous inclusions. Here we report the clinical and myopathological changes in a Chinese family with oculopharyngodistal myopathy. The[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
