  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    Becker and Kiener initially described Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) in 1955. [1, 2] BMD is an inherited disease with a male distribution pattern and a clinical picture similar to that of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). BMD is generally milder than DMD, and the onset of symptoms usually occurs later. The clinical[…][]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    Mutations in CAV3 gene encoding the protein caveolin-3 are associated with autosomal dominant limb girdle muscular dystrophy 1C, rippling muscle disease, hyperCKemia, distal myopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and rare autosomal recessive limb girdle muscular dystrophy phenotypes. In a 57-year-old patient with[…][]
