An autosomal recessive severe form of nemaline myopathy. Nemaline myopathies are muscular disorders characterized by muscle weakness of varying severity and onset, and abnormal thread-like or rod-shaped structures in muscle fibers on histologic examination. NEM10 is characterized by early-onset generalized muscle weakness and hypotonia with respiratory insufficiency and feeding difficulties. Additional features include arthrogryposis or congenital contractures, ophthalmoplegia, a history of prematurity, reduced fetal movements, and polyhydramnios. Most patients die of respiratory failure in early infancy.
