    Ryanodine Receptor mutation

    After reviewing some cases presenting to Bristol with Rhabdomyolysis I wondered if this child had genetics sent for Ryanodine Receptor gene (RYR gene). This can cause malignant hyperthermia and in our case the boy resented with muscle pain on exertion and recurrent rhabdomyolysis. The article below is useful.
