General information

Myotonia is a hereditary muscle disease that causes a disturbance in the development of chlorine channels. Due to poorly developed chlorine channels, an uncontrolled muscle tension arises which worsens when aroused.

Clinical features

Most common clinical signs are the “recurrent episodes of recumbency and difficulty to rise due to muscle stiffness”. Occasionally, when the horse is stimulated, it "seemed hyperreactive and temporary protrusion of the third eyelid occurred due to retraction of the eye uni- or bilaterally".
