Differential diagnosis of distal myopathies

Takeaway

  • The MRI pattern used in this study accurately delineates distal myopathies presenting with anterior leg involvement, hereby confirming systemic involvement of the anterior leg compartment in Laing myopathy.

Why this matters

    Early intramuscular fat replacement in anterior leg muscles may serve as an indicator of Laing myopathy that can be further utilized in differential diagnosis of distal myopathies exhibiting distal leg muscle involvement.
