Pediatric Neuromuscular Disorders

Children who suffer from neuromuscular illnesses experience issues with their muscles and nerves, which affect how their muscles function. They may have an impact on the nerves that govern various muscle types, the muscles themselves, or the way the nerves and muscles interact. While some of these disorders are inherited (given from parent to kid), others are caused by unrelated factors. Usually, these illnesses result in muscle weakness. In most cases, the symptoms progressively worsen over time.

Market Analysis: The term “neuromuscular disorders” (NMD) includes diseases that take their origin or manifest at the anatomical and functional “neuromuscular unit”, comprised of the spinal alpha-motoneuron, the peripheral nerve and its axon collaterals, the neuromuscular synapses and the associated muscle fibers. With few exceptions, neuromuscular disorders in children are rare diseases. The overall prevalence up to the age of 15 has been estimated at 7–80/100,000. The group contains many hundreds of disease entities. Of these, some 80% are inherited. X-linked Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), autosomal-recessive spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and autosomal dominant Charcot–Marie–Tooth neuropathy type 1A are the most frequent ones (incidence between 1:2,500–1:10,000); all others are much rarer and, in part, have been described in only a few families. In children, only 20% of NMDs are acquired (inflammatory, toxic, metabolic) and accessible to a causative treatment.
