About Muscular Dystrophy

The muscular dystrophies (MD) are a group of more than 30 genetic diseases characterized by progressive weakness and degeneration of the skeletal or voluntary muscles that control movement. Some forms of MD are seen in infancy or childhood, while others may not appear until middle age or later. The condition is caused by genetic mutations that interfere with the production of muscle proteins necessary to build and maintain healthy muscles. The disorders differ in terms of the distribution and extent of muscle weakness (some forms of MD also affect cardiac muscle), age of onset, rate of progression, and pattern of inheritance. Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the most common form of MD and primarily affects boys; Facioscapulohumeral MD usually begins in the teenage years and Myotonic is the most common adult form of MD. The most common types of MD are Duchenne (DMD), Becker, Myotonic, Congenital, Emery-Dreifuss, Fascioscapulohumeral, Limb-Girdle, Ocular and Oculopharyngeal.
