    Rippling muscle disease (RMD) is a rare muscle disorder characterised by muscle stiffness, exercise induced myalgia, and cramp-like sensations. It is genetically heterogeneous and can be acquired, but most cases show autosomal dominant inheritance due to mutations in the caveolin-3 (CAV3) gene....

    Mutations in WFS1 are reported to be responsible for two conditions with distinct phenotypes; DFNA6/14/38 and autosomal recessive Wolfram syndrome. They differ in their associated symptoms and inheritance mode, and although their most common clinical symptom is hearing loss, it is of different...
