Central core disease
Central core disease falls under the category of congenital myopathies which are a group of conditions characterised by muscle weakness and wasting. Central core disease is a rare condition and symptoms usually become apparent at birth or early infancy, although cases have been reported where symptoms are present in the foetus. The condition is generally non- or slowly progressive and people affected usually have a normal life span.
