Family guide for congenital myopathy
The family guide available on this page summarizes an international consensus on congenital myopathy (CM) diagnosis and medical care. It was created by a diverse working group including research professionals, CM parents, and an individual with CM.
The guide is based on the main academic consensus document which is published in the Journal of Child Neurology by Wang and colleagues in 2012.
The family-guide ‘translates’ the full academic publication into a form that is more readily understandable to non-specialists and will enable families to have a clear guideline that they can use to discuss their care with their care providers.
