Myopathy, autophagic vacuolar, infantile-onset

MedGen UID:
419364
Concept ID:
C2931230
Disease or Syndrome
Synonyms: Autophagic vacuolar myopathy; Myopathy, Autophagic Vacuolar, Infantile-Onset; Vacuolar myopathy
 
Monarch Initiative: MONDO:0012286
OMIM®: 609500

Definition

Infantile-onset autophagic vacuolar myopathy is characterized by increased cardiac and skeletal muscle glycogen with normal acid maltase (GAA; 606800). Skeletal muscle biopsy shows characteristic intracytoplasmic vacuoles that stain for sarcolemmal proteins and complement proteins. Similar pathologic findings are seen in Danon disease (300257), caused by mutation in the LAMP2 gene (309060) on chromosome Xq24, and X-linked myopathy with excessive autophagy (XMEA; 310440), which has been mapped to Xq28. [from OMIM]

Clinical features

From HPO
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
MedGen UID:
2881
Concept ID:
C0007194
Disease or Syndrome
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is defined by the presence of increased ventricular wall thickness or mass in the absence of loading conditions (hypertension, valve disease) sufficient to cause the observed abnormality.
Global developmental delay
MedGen UID:
107838
Concept ID:
C0557874
Finding
A delay in the achievement of motor or mental milestones in the domains of development of a child, including motor skills, speech and language, cognitive skills, and social and emotional skills. This term should only be used to describe children younger than five years of age.
Myopathy
MedGen UID:
10135
Concept ID:
C0026848
Disease or Syndrome
A disorder of muscle unrelated to impairment of innervation or neuromuscular junction.
Autophagic vacuoles
MedGen UID:
107466
Concept ID:
C0544966
Finding
The lysosomal-vacuolar pathway has a role in the controlled intracellular digestion of macromolecules such as protein complexes and organelles. This feature refers to the presence of an abnormally increased number of autophagic vacuoles in muscle tissue.
Neonatal hypotonia
MedGen UID:
412209
Concept ID:
C2267233
Disease or Syndrome
Muscular hypotonia (abnormally low muscle tone) manifesting in the neonatal period.
Elevated circulating creatine kinase concentration
MedGen UID:
69128
Concept ID:
C0241005
Finding
An elevation of the level of the enzyme creatine kinase (also known as creatine phosphokinase (CK; EC 2.7.3.2) in the blood. CK levels can be elevated in a number of clinical disorders such as myocardial infarction, rhabdomyolysis, and muscular dystrophy.
