Procedure for analysis of muscle biopsies in the neuropathology laboratory. Muscle biopsies are processed by cryostat. A large number of slides are necessary for the different stainings, and a series of routine techniques are performed for the initial evaluation (histochemical and histoenzymatic techniques). Depending of the results of the routine panel, other more specific protocols can be applied to obtain additional information.
