GARCIA GARCIA, Ramiro Jorge. Suspicion of neuromuscular disease in asymptomatic children with increase of glutamic-pyruvic transaminase or creatinine phosphokinase. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2009, vol.81, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-3119.
A lengthy increase of glutamic-pyruvic transaminase, without a proved cause, or rise of creatinine phosphokinase levels in children with a few symptoms of neuromuscular disorder or without them, is an infrequent reason of consultation in Neuropediatrics service. Authors present a summary of features reported in this respect in medical literature, and are included comments, as well as proposal of a algorithm for diagnosis.
