Summaries for Nemaline Myopathy

About this section
NIH Rare Diseases:46 Nemaline myopathy is a disorder that primarily affects skeletal muscles, which are muscles that the body uses for movement. people with nemaline myopathy have muscle weakness (myopathy) throughout the body, but it is typically most severe in the muscles of the face, neck, and limbs. this weakness can worsen over time. affected individuals may have feeding and swallowing difficulties, foot deformities, abnormal curvature of the spine (scoliosis), and joint deformities (contractures). mutations in at least six genes can cause nemaline myopathy. some individuals with nemaline myopathy do not have an identified mutation. the genetic cause of the disorder is unknown in these individuals. nemaline myopathy is usually inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. less often, this condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern.nemaline myopathy is divided into six types. you can search for information about a particular type of nemaline myopathy from the gard home page. enter the name of the condition in the gard search box and then select the type from the drop down menu. last updated: 3/10/2014

MalaCards based summary: Nemaline Myopathy, also known as nemaline rod myopathy, is related to nemaline myopathy 1, autosomal dominant or recessive and nemaline myopathy 5, amish type. An important gene associated with Nemaline Myopathy is TPM3 (Tropomyosin 3), and among its related pathways are Cardiac muscle contraction and Smooth Muscle Contraction. Affiliated tissues include skeletal muscle and heart, and related mouse phenotype muscle.

Disease Ontology:11 A congenital structural myopathy characterized by generally non-progressive muscle weakness of varying severity; certain muscle fibers show the presence of rod-like structures called nemaline bodies.

Genetics Home Reference:24 Nemaline myopathy is a disorder that primarily affects skeletal muscles, which are muscles that the body uses for movement. People with nemaline myopathy have muscle weakness (myopathy) throughout the body, but it is typically most severe in the muscles of the face, neck, and limbs. This weakness can worsen over time. Affected individuals may have feeding and swallowing difficulties, foot deformities, abnormal curvature of the spine (scoliosis), and joint deformities (contractures). Most people with nemaline myopathy are able to walk, although some affected children may begin walking later than usual. As the condition progresses, some people may require wheelchair assistance. In severe cases, the muscles used for breathing are affected and life-threatening breathing difficulties can occur.
