In brief: Many changes seen

Many changes may be seen; there may be increased scar tissue between the muscle fibers and the fibers may be disorganized with some fibers actually being dead and nonfunctional.

In brief: Atrophy

The type ii fibers are atrophic.
In severe muscle disease causing paralysis and precipitated by steroids for asthma, there are other changes.
