Centronuclear myopathies (CNM) are a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of congenital myopathies, defined histologically by increased number of fibres with centrally located nuclei, and type I fibre predominance in muscle biopsy. Myotubular myopathy, the X-linked form of CNM caused by mutations in the phosphoinositide phosphatase MTM1, is histologically characteristic since muscle fibres resemble myotubes.
