The authors characterise the medical history of 3 boys (age range: 3 months - 3 years) in whom elevated aminotransferases activity, suggesting hepatitis, was detected. The differential diagnosis and laboratory findings enabled the diagnosis of muscular dystrophy as a cause of elevated activity of these enzymes in blood serum.
