Abstract

The term 'neuromuscular diseases' defines disorders of the extended motor unit. Newborns with disorders of peripheral nervous system (PNS) (motor neurons, nerve roots, plexuses, peripheral nerves, neuromuscular junction, and skeletal muscles) present most frequently with hypotonia, weakness, contractures, respiratory and feeding difficulties.
