PURPOSE: Patients with myotonic muscular dystrophy (MMD) are reported to have early carbon-dioxide (CO2) retention compared to patients with other neuromuscular diseases with similar functional vital capacity (FVC). We analyzed several pulmonary function parameters of patients with MMD, and compared them with that of the patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) to seek the reason of early respiratory failure in the patients with MMD.
