As ultra rare conditions, muscle GSDs must be managed by a specialist. However, issues can arise in primary care, so general practitioners need to be well briefed. This booklet addresses that need in McArdle disease.
The booklet takes a few moments to load, you can then turn through the pages, search it and even install a copy on your computer (see the controls at foot).
