Abstract

The relationship between neuromuscular diseases and the heart has been well known for many years. Cardiac lesions tend to involve the specialized conducting system. We report the case of a 36-year-old male diagnosed with Steinert's myotonic dystrophy whose initial cardiovascular symptom was heart failure and not symptoms related to alterations of the specialized conducting system.
