We report here clinical, electrophysiological, and molecular findings in a family affected with two inherited genetic diseases: limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 1B (LGMD1B) and hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsies (HNPP). Members of the family carry a novel missense mutation in the LMNA gene and a nonsense mutation in the PMP22 gene. Interestingly, the double LMNA/PMP22 mutations carriers showed clinical features more severe than usually seen in HNPP, and electrophysiological findings suggesting an axonal loss in addition to a typical myelinopathy. This study provides further insights into the relevance of lamin A/C in muscle and nerve.

Abstract

We report here clinical, electrophysiological, and molecular findings in a family affected with two inherited genetic diseases: limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 1B (LGMD1B) and hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsies (HNPP). Members of the family carry a novel missense mutation in the LMNA gene and a nonsense mutation in the PMP22 gene. Interestingly, the double LMNA/PMP22 mutations carriers showed clinical features more severe than usually seen in HNPP, and electrophysiological findings suggesting an axonal loss in addition to a typical myelinopathy. This study provides further insights into the relevance of lamin A/C in muscle and nerve.
