Abstract

Dynamin2 (DNM2) gene mutations may result in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and centronuclear myopathy. Here, we present a patient suffering from cardiomyopathy and centronuclear myopathy with repetitive discharges and mild axonal neuropathy due to DNM2 mutation. Detailed cardiological and neurological examinations, electrophysiological tests, muscle biopsy, and molecular genetic analysis were performed. The patient developed left bundle branch block at age 40 and was fitted with a pacemaker at the age of 43. The patient has severe heart failure, ptosis, strabism, facial and proximal muscle weakness. Electrophysiological investigations found myopathy, complex repetitive discharges, and axonal neuropathy. Skeletal muscle biopsy detected centronuclear myopathy and cytochrome C oxidase (COX) negative fibers. Genetic analysis detected a pathogenic c.1105C>T (p.R369W) DNM2 gene mutation and heteroplasmic multiple mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) deletion. Our data broadens the phenotypic spectrum of DNM2 mutations. The presence of the multiple mtDNA deletions may provide new aspects to understanding the pathogenesis of multisystemic symptoms in patients with DNM2 mutations.
