Abstract

The goal of this article is to provide physiatrists, neurologists, and neuromuscular medicine physicians a framework that can be easily used in the process of evaluating, identifying, and treating patients with toxic myopathies. This review attempts to classify these rare but potentially deadly conditions in clinical patterns and distinguishes the cellular mechanisms in which the offending agents tend to impact the structure and function of myocytes.
