Two siblings with nemaline myopathy were analysed. There was a general muscle weakness and lack of muscle strength that was more obvious in the proximal muscles. One could walk independently and one with minimal support. Patients developed a serial of postural adaptations. No correlation between muscle strength and functional level was found.
