Advances in myotonic dystrophy type 2

Myotonic dystrophy type 2 or PROMM (Proximal Myotonic Myopathy) is a rare disease of genetic origin. It affects the muscles, which become weak (dystrophy) and difficult to relax after contraction (myotonia). It can also affect other organs (heart, eyes, etc.). It manifests in adulthood and progresses slowly. This disease has many similarities with another, much more common neuromuscular disease, Steinert’s disease (or myotonic dystrophy type 1).
