  • A 35-year-old man presents to his primary care physician's office for difficulty chewing and walking and mild musclar pain. He notices himself dragging his feet while walking and pain in his legs. He experiences stiffness in his jaw and his hands.[medbullets.com]

  • Despite this diversity, they all share many features: they are mostly mediated through brain dysfunction or abnormalities, are often chronic in course, typically benefit from multi-component interventions, and are amongst the most neglected conditions[books.google.com]


Sinus Arrest
  • Sinus arrest with junctional escape beats was noted. He was diagnosed as X-linked recessive EDMD (MIM 310300). A 28-yr-old female showed severe wasting and weakness of humeroperoneal muscles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • The symptoms are similar to DMD but often milder, and patients are less likely to have mental retardation and have a better prognosis (30-40 years instead of teens).[lecturio.com]
  • Prognosis - Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy- type 2C Patients may also present with elevated CK levels without weakness but with myalgia and cramps, distal weakness, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, or rippling-muscle disease.[checkorphan.org]
  • Prognosis and management, therefore, are not uniform across the subtypes of LGMD2. Nonetheless, early identification of complications and risk factors is crucial.[mdfgauteng.org]
  • […] autosomal dominant mutation in DMPK gene on chromosome 19 leads to a CTG trinucleotide expansion Pathogenesis unclear, but it is believed that the abnormal mRNA transcript of DMPK impairs RNA splicing, which leads to missplicing of other RNA transcripts Prognosis[medbullets.com]
  • Prognosis The prognosis of LGMD varies tremendously. Most people with LGMD, however do not have severe symptoms and most experience a normal lifespan. Cardiac and respiratory difficulties can, however, decrease the lifespan.[encyclopedia.com]
