Neuromuscular disease: 2023 update




Long COVID, Guillain-Barré syndrome, Wallerian degeneration, Nodes of Ranvier, Muscle regeneration, Chaperonopathy, Target fiber, Inclusion body myositis, Facioscapulohumeral dystrophy, Myotonic dystrophy, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis


This review highlights ten important advances in the neuromuscular disease field that were reported in 2022. As with prior updates in this article series, the overarching topics include (i) advances in understanding of fundamental neuromuscular biology; (ii) new / emerging diseases; (iii) advances in understanding of disease etiology and pathogenesis; (iv) diagnostic advances; and (v) therapeutic advances. Within this general framework, the individual disease entities that are discussed in more detail include neuromuscular complications of COVID-19 (another look at the topic first covered in the 2021 and 2022 reviews), DNAJB4-associated myopathy, NMNAT2-deficient hereditary axonal neuropathy, Guillain-Barré syndrome, sporadic inclusion body myositis, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. In addition, the review highlights a few other advances (including new insights into mechanisms of fiber maturation during muscle regeneration and fiber rebuilding following reinnervation, improved genetic testing methods for facioscapulohumeral and myotonic muscular dystrophies, and the use of SARM1 inhibitors to block Wallerian degeneration) that will be of significant interest for clinicians and researchers who specialize in neuromuscular disease.
