Of the genetic error is needed to cause the condition, and one good copy cannot compensate. This form of the condition affects both males and females. Autosomal recessive myotubular myopathy -this pattern of inheritance is also very rare. As with the autosomal dominant form, the gene involved has not been identified, but is expected to have a similar function to the myotubularin gene. Autosomal recessive means that, in order for a person to be affected, he or she must have two copies of the genetic error. Each parent must carry a copy of the error, but usually they do not show any signs of the condition. This form of the condition also affects males and females. generic viagra online no prescription More information on genetic inheritance is available from the information and support line (contact details shown below). What are the common features? X-linked myotubular myopathy (or xmtm) - this is the most severe form of myotubular myopathy. It generally affects only males, and has the earliest onset. Commonly there are signs of the condition before the baby is born, and often an excessive accumulation of amniotic fluid around the baby is seen.   most individuals are born with severe floppiness (hypotonia), muscle weakness, and infants may fail to breathe spontaneously at birth, most will require breathing support. There are usually problems with feeding, in particular swallowing, and breathing problems can persist. Chest infections may occur frequently. generic viagra The child may have a long face, which could seem expressionless. no prescription viagra The eyelids may be puffy, and some of the muscles in the eyes may not function correctly. There may be tightening of the knee and ankle joints (contractures). The severity of the condition varies considerably. In many cases death occurs in the first few months. Some children who survive infancy may show improvement in the first few years, although many will be severely disabled. Many of these children will require ventilatory support to assist their breathing. Occasionally, some children improve significantly and are left with only mild residual weakness even into adulthood. Female manifesting carriers of xmtm - manifesting carriers of myotubular myopathy are very rare. As mentioned earlier, every female has two copies of the x chromosome. In every cell, one copy is “switched off”. Usually this is random, but in some exceptional cases, more copies of the “good” chromosome are inactivated. cheap viagra online In such cases a female may show signs of the condition, but this is likely to be only mild weakness.   autosomal recessive myotubular myopathy - this is the intermediate form, with onset occurring in infancy or early childhood. Weakness of the muscles in the face may occur, as may droopiness of the eyelids. Some people may have problems with feeding. There is usually weakness of the proximal muscles (those closest to the trunk of the body). Autosomal dominant myotubular myopathy - onset of this form is very variable, ranging from birth to 30 years. It is not as severe as x-linked, and the condition generally follows a mild course. There is weakness of the muscles closest to the trunk of the body, although some people may show weakness of the more distal muscles. A problem with the heart has been seen in one person previously, and so is rare. It is, however, important to regularly monitor heart and lung function. ordering viagra online How is it diagnosed? The clinical signs are usually the first indication that there is a problem with the muscles. In order to confirm the diagnosis a muscle biopsy is required. Muscle biopsy - this is done in one of two ways: either an open biopsy where small piece of muscle is taken under general anaesthetic or a needle biopsy is performed under local anaesthetic to remove a small sample. generic viagra pills The sample will be analysed under a microscope. Muscle from people affected by myotubular myopathy shows a characteristic pattern, similar to that seen in foetal muscle. The nuclei are centrally located (hence the name centronuclear) instead of being at the outer edges of the fibres. ordering viagra online A factsheet on muscle biopsies is available from the information and support line (contact details are shown below). Molecular testing - this is only available for x-linked myotubular myopathy, testing for the dynamin mutation will become available in the future. It seems likely that the genetic cause for the x linked form will be identified in the future. Dna testing involves taking a blood sample and analysing the dna for the presence of a mutation. The gene is either “read” from end to end, and this sequence is compared to a normal mtm1 sequence, or only certain sections of the gene are analysed. This process can take up to several weeks to complete. Once this error has been identified in one family member, it is possible to use this sequence to diagnose other family members. What other tests are available? Prenatal diagnosis is available for families that are known to have a history of x-linked myotubular myopathy. The technique is described in the section molecular testing, but there are two ways to obtain samples for testing: amniocentesis is traditionally performed at 15 to 17 weeks into the pregnancy. Using ultrasound to visualise, a needle is inserted through the abdominal wall, and a sample of the fluid surrounding the baby (amniotic fluid) is taken. Chorionic villus sampling (cvs) is carried out at 10 to 11 weeks. This involves taking a sample of tissue from the placenta. ordering viagra online Results are available earlier using this technique than amniocentesis, but the rate of spontaneous abortion is slightly higher.   carrier testing - as with prenatal diagnosis, carrier testing is currently only available for families known to be affected by the x-linked form of myotubular myopathy. ordering viagra online How will it progress? Myotubular myopathy is a non-progre. cheap viagra overnight delivery generic viagra online overnight
