With the appearance of enzyme histochemistry, which this box and simplistic theories may be multiplied or printed hitherto unseen pathological ameliorations discarded. among muscle issues, muscle biopsy assumed Diseased muscle cells, as the other mobile style, exhibit an enormous diagnostic function. The research is definitely merely constrained morphological alterations. although weird and wonderful, played and is being undertaken with expanding only a few of those alterations, if any, are pathognomonic of frequency. however there's nonetheless a bent to a unmarried ailment. the precise importance of microscopic regard its interpretation as hugely really expert and out­ findings is to a wide volume made up our minds through their medical aspect the province of the overall histopathologist. during this context. therefore, even supposing this can be an atlas, it's certainly atlas i've got attempted to boost the veil of neuropathological now not designed to advertise 'spot' histological diagnoses. I mystique and to explain and illustrate the fundamental have aimed to supply a consultant to pathological reactions reactions of muscle cells. of muscle as a way to be priceless to the working towards histo­ Interpretation of the biopsy relies not just upon pathologist and all scholars of neuro-muscular disorder. popularity of morphological abnormalities, yet upon i am hoping that acceptance of the inability of specificity of realizing why they take place. in the course of the atlas I person morphological positive aspects will motivate the have tried to correlate morphological adjustments . shut clinico-pathological correlation that's crucial with pathogenetic mechanisms.

6 Small group atrophy in motor neuron disease. 5. Atrophic. denervated fibres are both types 1 and type 2. 7 Small group atrophy in motor neuron disease . Atrophic denervated fibres have faintly basopFlilic cytoplasm. This may be due to increased ribosomal activity and also to loss of myofibrils. 8 Atrophic, denervated fibres show some increase in acid-phosphatase activity, located in )ysosomes . Secondary Iysosomes, which correlate with lipofuschin pigment, are always present in ageing muscle cells, but denervated fibres also show an increase in primary lysosomal enzyme activity .

Muscle weakness is nearly always symmetrical with proximal selectivity and preservation of distal muscles. The clinical prugression is very slow with periods of arrest. Until recently almost any slowly progressive limb girdle syndrome was labelled as a muscular dystrophy, but it is now recognized that most are examples of SMA. In a series of nine patients described by Pearn no patient could walk unaided after 20 years, but only one was 46 wheelchair-bound 11 . Inheritance is usually autosomal recessive, but dominant and rare X-linked forms are described 1.

The pathological changes are very similar to those of experimental allergic neuritis, suggesting a hypersensitivity mechanism, perhaps initiated by a viral infections. When demyelination is severe it may be accompanied by axonal degeneration. Occasionally if weakness is confined to proximal muscles the clinical picture may resemble polymyositis. 1 Chronic peripheral neuropathy. Quadriceps biopsy from a 41-year-old woman with peroneal muscular atrophy. Onset of symptoms 3 years previously. Muscle wasting has progressed rapidly.
