Case study- neurological and muscular disease.

Choose one disease of those listed. Invent a patient. You do not need all the patient data
but do include typical symptoms and diagnostic findings. You may include graphs or images.  We will discuss an example case in class. Introduce the patient and describe the context of  the case. Describe the history and results of any examinations performed. Justify your  diagnosis. Suggest underlying causes, make a prognosis and suggest treatment. Ensure to  relate clinical findings and treatment to the underlying pathophysiology.
