Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A family is described with generalized muscle cramps inherited as an autosomal dominant trait and with maximal expression during adolescence. The age of onset varies between 10 and 15 years. Muscle enzymes are elevated with a peak level between 15 and 25 years. The complaints seem to disappear after the age of 25 years. EMG and muscle biopsies suggest a neurogenic origin of the cramps.
