Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Congenital myotonic dystrophy is the most extreme and early expression of a multisystem autosomal dominant disorder. Decreased fetal and infantile movement is a defining feature. We report a case of congenital myotonic dystrophy with an unusual pattern of persistent repetitive fetal movements detected by a Doppler fetal movement detector.
