Workup

  • The prenatal workup ruled out maternal diabetes, myasthenia gravis, and myotonic dystrophy. The mother had no reported viral illness during the pregnancy and workup for rubella, and coxsackie and enterovirus were negative.[docksci.com]

  • A combination of radiologic images, laboratory and genetic tests, and biopsies are used in the workup of the syndrome. Blood samples for the mutation are not particularly sensitive and become even less effective as the patient ages.[spisanie-pediatria-bg.eu]
