23 Possible Causes for Areflexia due to Muscle Weakness

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy Type 1A

    Merosin-deficient congenital muscular dystrophy type 1A (MDC1A) is the most common form of congenital muscular dystrophy. MDC1A is caused by mutation of the laminin alpha-2 gene (LAMA2), localized to chromosome 6q22-23. The diagnosis of merosin-deficient CMD is based on the clinical findings of severe congenital[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
