X-linked Centronuclear Myopathy is an inherited neuromuscular disease. Symptoms of X-linked Centronuclear Myopathy include hypotonia, a lack of muscle tone, and severe respiratory complications. This disease is caused by a mutation in the MTM1 gene on the X-chromosome. Because it is an X-linked disease, people who are diagnosed with the disease are most often males. People are diagnosed with X-linked Centronuclear Myopathy when they infants, and because there is no cure, few live past infancy. Short-term management of this rare disease includes constant respiratory ventilation and constant assessments by a variety of medical professionals.
