RESUMO

Os autores relatam 12 casos de atrofia muscular espinhal infantil progressiva, diagnosticados no Hospital da Criança Santo Antonio, Porto Alegre. O diagnóstico foi realizado por exame clínico neurológico, dosagem de enzimas musculares séricas, eletroneuromiografia e biópsia muscular. Sâo analisados os aspectos clínicos de apresentação da doença, sua evolução e a investigação laboratorial, confrontando os resultados com os conceitos da literatura.


SUMMARY

Twelve children with progressive spinal muscular atrophy were seen at Santo Antonio Children Hospital, Porto Alegre. Diagnosis was based on neurological evaluation, serum enzymes, electroneuromyography and muscle biopsy. Several aspects are discussed by the authors, especially those concerning the presentation mode of the illness and the laboratory investigation. Our results are reviewed under the light of the current literature.
