  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Early signs may include pseudohypertrophy (enlargement of calf muscles), low endurance, and difficulties in standing unaided or inability to ascend staircases.[] There is pseudohypertrophy of tongue (macroglossia in 30% cases) and calf muscles (60% cases).[] Clinical examination reveals muscle pseudohypertrophy affecting the calf muscles and there may be atrophy of more proximal muscles such as the quadriceps.[]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Pseudohypertrophy of the calf muscles is due to fibrous tissue and fat infiltration. Involvement of the heart consists of usually terminal cardiomyopathy.[] Calf muscles initially enlarge and the enlarged muscle tissue is eventually replaced with fat and connective tissue (pseudohypertrophy).[]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Spinal musular atrophies are a group of genetic disorders distinguished by progressive degeneration of anterior horn cells in the spinal cord. Proximal weakness of the extremities that may require use of assistive devices and minimal respiratory difficulties appearing between 18 months and 30 years of age are[…][]

  • Adult Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    Adult spinal muscular atrophy is a genetic neurodegenerative disorder characterized by muscle wasting and weakness. In adults, normal life expectancy is achieved, as only mild weakness may be encountered. The diagnosis rests on confirming genetic mutations.
