Myopathies in animals

Experimental visualization of narrower problems

The myopathies are diseases that produce primary damage to the skeletal muscle fibre. Many examples of progressive myopathies resemble various types of muscular dystrophy seen in man.


The most common and economically important myopathies of domestic animals are caused by nutritional deficiencies of selenium or vitamin E, or both.
