  • Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Spinal muscular atrophy is characterised by slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy of the limb muscles associated with motor neurone loss in the spinal cord.[patient.info] Bulbar muscular atrophy affects the bulbar and facial muscles with motor neurone loss in the brainstem.
