ABSTRACT
The copy numbers of the CTG repeats are known to relate to the severity of clinical symptoms formyotonic dystrophy. The positive correlation between clinical manifestations and CTG repeat size hasbeen demonstrated previously. A genetically confirmed myotonic dystrophy patient with 90 CTG repeatnumber had more severe clinical manifestation than brother with 120 CTG repeats, in adulthood.
Key words: CTG repeat, Myotonic dystrophy
