ABSTRACT: Patient registries are a resource to better study neurologic disease and may facilitate the development of future treatments. Clinicians should become comfortable with the strengths and limitations of patient registries and be able to discuss them with their patients. This article discusses the use of patient registries through the example of registries for patients with neuromuscular disease.
