Centronuclear myopathy is a condition that primarily affects skeletal muscles and may be associated with mutations in the DNM2 gene (for autosomal dominant pattern) or mutations in the BIN1 gene (for autosomal recessive pattern) Patients with autosomal dominant centronuclear myopathy may have droopy eyelids(ptosis) and weakness in the muscles that control eye movement (ophthalmoplegia) --as mentioned in your other post.
