Abstract

The present case is about a patient who had rolling muscle contractions, which were electrically silent. She was diagnosed as having Rippling Muscle Disease, in her case; this disorder was likely autoimmune associated. RMD can be hereditary, acquired due to de novo mutations, or have autoimmune etiology. Most of the time RMD is associated with myasthenia gravis. Depending of the form of RMD, patients respond to dantrolene and/or immunossupresants.
