Diagnostic Considerations

These include the following:

  • X-linked myopathy with excessive autophagy (XMEA)

  • Infantile autophagic vacuolar myopathy

  • Acid maltase deficiency (Pompe disease, glycogen-storage disease type II)

  • PRKAG2 mutation form of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)

  • Becker muscular dystrophy

  • Other limb-girdle muscular dystrophies, such as caveolinopathy type 3: Limb-girdle muscular dystrophies manifest with weakness in the shoulder and hip-girdle muscles and are subtyped according to the affected muscle-cell protein; at least 20 genes cause symptoms of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy
