In a woman with a slowly progressive adult onset proximal myopathy, muscle biopsy showed storage of PAS positive material in type 1 fibers. This material consisted of a branched chain polysaccharide associated with a mucoprotein. No abnormality of glycogen-pathway enzymes was detected. This suggested that this polysaccharide accumulation occurred because the polysaccharide was laid down in a non-bioavailable form. The clinical and histochemical features in this patient and in the few similar reported cases indicate that polysaccharide storage myopathy is a distinct entity that is allied to the glycogen storage myopathies.
