    Abstract

    Study of the serum creatine kinase levels in young patients with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy suggests that enzyme assay may be valuable as a screening procedure for assessing the status of relatives of an affected individual who have no previous clinical history, and that consequently it may be of use in genetic counselling.
