Distrofias musculares

Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy: a molecular and immunohistochemical approach. In Deletions were found in The cases without deletions, which included the only woman in the study with DMD, had dystrophin deficiency. The symptomatic female carriers had no deletions but had abnormal dystrophin distribution in the sarcolemma discontinuous immunostains. The following diagnoses were made for the remaining cases without deletions with the aid of a muscle biopsy: spinal muscular atrophy, congenital myopathy; sarcoglycan deficiency and unclassified limb-girdle muscular dystrophy.

The heart muscle, however, can be affected similarly to the way it can be in DMD. BMD's onset varies widely from 5 to 60 years of age, 1 and the course is slower and less predictable than that of DMD. Generalized weakness first affects muscles of the hips, pelvic area, thighs, and shoulders. Calves are often enlarged.
