5th. Summer School of Myology
- Class 2002
In Paris, June 2002 took place
the 5th Summer School of Myology, at the Institut de Myologie, Hpital
Piti-Lasalptrire, with the support of the French Association
against the Myopathies (AFM).
The program was prepared and directed
by Prs. M Fardeau, JA Urtizberea and the whole team of the Institut.
Attendants, neurologists and
pathologists, 35 persons came from all over the world.
The subjects covered the clinical,
pathological, experimental, therapeutic and genetical recent features
of muscle diseases. The speakers were known and eminent expert colleagues
from France and various countries. Their expertise in the research
fields was demonstrated in the different aspects of the ever progressing
knowledge of the muscle diseases they presented, and discussed.
The 10 days program included pathology
workshops (2), that I will try to illustrate thru the cases I have
collected with the help of Pr. Norma ROMERO from
the Inserm U.523 that "easily" introduced us to the pathological
features of the diseases. I hope that my representations will be
of help to the pathologists newcomers to the knowledge of the diseases
of the muscle, that some are infrequent.
