Multi-minicore disease is an inherited disorder caused due to the mutation of certain genes. The disease results in the weakening of skeletal muscles in the body that severely hamper the patient's mobility. The disease has many forms, of which the most common is the classic form. This manifests itself in infancy as stiffness in the neck and spinal muscles. The disease is progressive and causes respiratory distress. It can also create delay in learning movements like sitting, standing and walking. Currently, there is no cure available. Proposed treatments can have dangerous side-effects.
