I believe I can answer this one too.
Muscular Dystrophy is a general term covering ANY muscle disease.
A myopathy is a muscle wasting disease.
A Myositis is a muscle inflammation disease.
Therefore....myopathy and myositis are BOTH muscular dystrophies.
Congenital means "apparent at birth".
So...Congenital Myopathy is a muscle wasting disease visible in a new-born baby.
ps - don't mean to sound cold about it...just giving you the facts.
