Congenital myopathies are a group of rare, clinically heterogeneous diseases characterized by structural abnormalities in muscle histology under electron microscopy. The most common congenital structural myopathies are nemaline myopathy, central core disease and centronuclear myopathy. Due to the numerous differential diagnoses, a broad diagnostic work-up is necessary. Genetic panel diagnostics can contribute to the definitive diagnosis.
