The disease is more common in men, probably reflecting an ascertainment bias related to exposure to prolonged exercise. The clinical manifestations are characterized by recurrent attacks of rhabdomyolysis, muscle pain, and weakness triggered usually by prolonged physical exercise and sometimes exacerbated by extremes in temperature; episodes may also be provoked or exacerbated by prolonged fasting, such as may occur with intercurrent viral illness.
Patients are asymptomatic between episodes of rhabdomyolysis. SerLeu mutation, which impairs enzyme stability. The differential diagnosis should include McArdle disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, cytochrome c oxidase deficiency see these terms , complex II deficiency, complex III deficiency and rhabdomyolysis due to excessive exercise, infections, autoimmune reactions or drug-related neuroleptic syndrome among others. Transmission is autosomal recessive.
If the disease-causing mutations are identified in an affected individual, early diagnosis by molecular genetic testing can be offered to at-risk relatives to reduce morbidity and mortality. L-carnitine administration and anaplerotic diet therapy with triheptanoin have been suggested for treatment of the disease; however benefits have not been proven.
