A study has been made of a large kindred2 of which many members are known to have weakness and muscular atrophy. The individual family groups of this kindred are large and in some cases are of polygamous origin. This has presented an unusual opportunity for the study of the abnormality in a large group of patients, all of whom derived the trait from the same source; and to see the trait as it occurred at different ages and in different degrees of expression. A clinical description of the disease is presented as well as the pattern of its inheritance.
