Conclusions

There exists a plethora of diseases affiliated with CM-I, many of which have been mentioned in this article and certainly more to be discovered in the future. While the final outcome of CM-I may be the same, the strength of the correlation and pathophysiological mechanisms of each differs greatly and some may be spurious associations. Thus, the need for additional genetic research and investigation of CM-I continues.
