    A 19-year-old man had a 7-year history of leg cramps and a tendency for his legs to "seize up" when he participated in sports. The condition was initially mild, and clinical examination revealed an extremely muscular physique and percussion and action myotonia. Electromyography was consistent...

    Abstract The inherited ion channel disorders (channelopathies) are a group of disorders caused by mutations in genes encoding ion channels. Ion channel disorders can affect any tissue, but the majority affect skeletal muscle or the central nervous system. These disorders include skeletal muscle...

    Summary: The nondystrophic myotonias are a heterogeneous set of rare diseases that demonstrate clinical myotonia, electrical myotonia, or both. These disorders are distinguished from myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM-1), the more recently described proximal myotonic myopathy/myotonic dystrophy type...

    An encyclopedia entry for "myotonia," is presented. Myotonia is muscle stiffness, in which muscle relaxation after voluntary contraction is impaired, and is caused by mutations in several ion channel genes. Myotonic dystrophy is due to mutations in a kinase gene while myotonia congenita is a...

    The CLC-1 chloride channel, a member of the CLC-channel/transporter family, plays important roles for the physiological functions of skeletal muscles. The opening of this chloride channel is voltage dependent and is also regulated by protons and chloride ions. Mutations of the gene encoding...

    We report a family of a brother and sister of myotonia congenita, conforming to autosomal recessive transmission (Becker's variety). To the best of our knowledge, no account of a family of autosomal recessive myotonia (Becker's disease), has earlier been reported from India.

    The article describes the disease entity of myotonia congenita and hereditary psychosis. This muscular disorder is now accepted as a clinical and genetic entity, distinct from other forms of myotonia, viz. dystrophia myotonica and paramyotonia. Danish physician Julius Thomas Thomsen, has pointed...
