QSM diagnosed in a non-Jewish family originating from East India has also been mapped to the same chromosomal locus.16 Furthermore, the same chromosomal location has been reported for the distal myopathy (DMRV) diagnosed in Japanese patients (HIBM2C).26 The Tunisian Arab disorder is probably also linked (Hentati, personal communica-tion).27 It seems that the recessive HIBM forms in the different communities are allelic variations. On the other hand, linkage studies have allowed the exclusion of the 9p1-q1 locus in the recessive disease described in the French-Canadian family with brain MRI abnormalities.16 Thus, not all recessive forms of HIBM map to chromosome 9p1.

Some of the dominant disorders have been mapped. Both the Welander and the tibial muscular dystrophy are now linked to different sites on chromosome 2.28,29 A family of the form described as HIBM1A (Denver family) was briefly reported to have linkage to a site on chromosome 8.30 The HIBM1C reported from Sweden has been mapped to chromosome 17p13.1.31 The Italian family (HIBM1E) is linked to chromosome 19p13.10 In the disorder called limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 2G, which is linked to chromosome 17q11-12,32 many fibers contain rimmed vacuoles, but dystrophic changes are also abundant (another 'possible' HIBM).
