A rare myopathy clinically characterized by rapidly progressive muscular weakness, and pathologically by the presence of intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies strongly stained by menadione-linked alpha-glycerophosphate dehydrogenase in the absence of substrate, alpha-glycerophosphate. The term 'reducing body' refers to the reducing activity of the inclusions to nitroblue tetrazolium in the absence of substrate. This condition is also commonly associated with rimmed vacuoles and cytoplasmic bodies.
