Neuromyopathies, i.e. neuromuscular diseases, include a group of various diseases that affect the function of the nerves, neuromuscular junction, or muscles. Diseases often lead to progressive muscle weakness and the need for various assistive equipment. Some diseases are also associated with changes in the function of other organs, such as the heart, lungs, or central nervous system. Most of these diseases are hereditary and some develop through immune mediation or as a result of an inflammatory process. At the moment, nearly 800 different neuromyopathies have been identified, which have been further divided into 16 different disease groups.
