1,595 Possible Causes for EMG Shows Evidence of Reinnervation, Hyporeflexia, Muscle Biopsy Abnormal

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    This condition is typically characterized by large and abnormally distributed mitochondria on muscle biopsy, which can distinguish this condition from the other muscle conditions[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Under the microscope, the muscle of a positive biopsy generally shows dead tissue and abnormally large muscle fibers.[cedars-sinai.edu] Muscle biopsies from subjects 1 and 3 were severely dystrophic with abnormal immunofluorescence and western blotting indicative of α-dystroglycan hypoglycosylation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
