 About the Congenital Muscle Disease International Registry

The Congenital Muscle Disease International Registry (CMDIR) was created to identify the global congenital muscle disease population and includes individuals with congenital myopathies (all subtypes), congenital muscular dystrophies (all subtypes), congenital myasthenic syndromes, and the limb girdle spectrum.  The CMDIR collects important information like disease symptom information, and medical records.
