Tubular aggregates (TAs) are inclusions described in skeletal muscle in a variety of disorders. In a retrospective analysis, TAs were found in 18 (0.24%) cases and involved a spectrum of clinical phenotypes. Ultrastructurally, four distinct types of aggregates were noted. There was no correlation between the clinical phenotypes, duration of illness and types of TAs.
Cramps, familial dementia, limb girdle myasthenia, lower motor neuron syndrome, myalgia, noncompressive myelopathy, periodic paralysis, tubular aggregates, ultrastructure
