A 22-year-old patient with suspected myopathy was examined. A biopsy of quadriceps sinister wasperformed.There were both ultrastructurally unchanged muscle fibers with normal myofibrils and musclefragments with a disturbed sarcomere system. Most mitochondria were normal, but some revealedpartial loss of mitochondrial combs. Quite numerous fat droplets were observed.Biochemical examination of carnitine palmitoyltransferase in the muscle biopsy was performed andthe result was within the normal range - 20,63 nM/mgB/min (norm 6,5-18 nM/mgB/min) despite theincreased amount of fat droplets in the muscle.
