Executive dysfunction and avoidant personality trait in myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM-1) and in proximal myotonic myopathy (PROMM/DM-2).
DM2, also called proximal myotonic myopathy, is rarer than DM1 and generally manifests with milder signs and symptoms, and is caused by an expanded CCTG repeat (from 75 to 11,000 repeats) in the first intron of the zinc finger protein 9 ( ZNF9 ) gene on chromosome 3q21.
