Abstract

Phosphorylase kinase (PhK) deficiency is the underlying cause of variable clinical symptoms depending on the tissues involved. Until today, only a few cases of myopathy associated with muscle PhK deficiency caused by a mutation in the gene encoding the alpha subunit of phosphorylase kinase (PHKA1) have been reported. We describe a male patient with myopathy and absent muscle PhK activity caused by a frameshift mutation in the gene encoding the alpha subunit of PhK on chromosome Xq12-q13.
