Abstract: Myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is a slowly progressive neuromuscular disease. The overall aim of this thesis was primarily to describe the characteristics, prevalence, and development of orofacial functions in a group of children and adolescents with DM1 and secondly to investigate the effect of lip strengthening exercises. In total, the study population consisted of 66 individuals with DM1, five with Möbius syndrome, six with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy and 106 healthy controls.... more
