Introduction: Electrodiagnostic evaluation provides an important extension to the neurological examination for the evaluation of pediatric neuromuscular disease. Many pediatric neuromuscular diseases are analogous to those seen in the adult. However, the relative frequency of these illnesses varies greatly when different age populations are compared. The purpose of the present study is to provide a retrospective analysis of children referred to our electromyography (EMG) laboratory for electrophysiological examinations.
