Fibrillation potentials are also commonly encountered in necrotizing myopathies, such as the inflammatory myopathies, critical illness myopathies and muscular dystrophies. This is likely due to segmental necrosis of muscle fibers, leading to effective denervation of the distant segments as they become physically separated from the neuromuscular junction. Also, damage to the terminal intramuscular motor axons, presumably by the inflammatory process, may also result in muscle fiber denervation. In disorders of the neuromuscular junction such as myasthenia gravis or botulism, fibrillation potentials are rare.
