  • 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]
  • Only the first and second heart sounds were present. The lung fields were clear and the liver was not palpable.[chs-journal.com]
  • Exercise-induced cramps may be present. Calf hypertrophy affects some patients. Adults usually remain ambulant. Causes - Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy- type 2C Muscular dystrophy is caused by various genetic mechanisms.[checkorphan.org]
  • Six (35.3%) of the patients had ECG signs of pulmonary hypertension, ventricular ectopic beats and sustained paroxysmal sinus tachycardia. Others include inverted T-waves; tall R-waves in leads V1-V2 which this patient had and deep Q-waves in V4-V6.[chs-journal.com]
Long Arm
  • A genomewide scan identified a region on the long arm of chromosome 6 that is significantly associated with the presence of myopathy (D6S262; maximum LOD score [Z(max)] 4.99 at maximum recombination fraction [theta(max)] .00), identifying FDC-CDM as a[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Gower’s sign was positive. Winging of scapula was present. Power was 3/5 at both shoulders, 4/5 at both elbows, 5/5 at both wrists, 3/5 at both hip joints, 3/5 at both knees, 5/5 at both ankles.[jcdr.net]
  • In his adolescence, he developed proximal leg weakness with Gowerssign (i.e., with hip girdle weakness, the patient arises from a stooped or a squatting position by using his hands to “climb up the legs”).[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com]


  • Part one discusses the approach to neuromuscular disorders, covering principles and basics, neuromuscular investigations, and assessment and treatment of neurological disorders.[books.google.com]
  • In acquired myopathies, treatment is targeted toward the underlying cause. Treatment of statin myopathies is dependent on creatine phosphokinase levels and degree of muscle symptoms. Consider lower doses when initiating statin therapy.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]
  • More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2C is available below.[checkorphan.org]
  • Early and prompt treatment and early surveillance is much better than waiting for problems to occur and then trying to deal with them.[treat-nmd.eu]
  • You may also want to contact a university or tertiary medical center in your area, because these centers tend to see more complex cases and have the latest technology and treatments.[rarediseases.info.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]
  • […] 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]
  • Prognosis depends on the type of LGMD and whether there is cardiac or respiratory involvement.[jcdr.net]

  • Thus, although no current guidelines are available, oral anticoagulant is advisable in such cases with AF for stroke prevention.[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com]
  • This would entail close surveillance to recognize symptoms and to prevent detrimental sequelae. 2.[pubs.sciepub.com]
  • Carriers do not have any symptoms since they have one unchanged gene, which produces enough normal protein to prevent the symptoms of LGMD.[encyclopedia.com]
  • Treatment options that may be recommended for people with LGMD1B may include: [1] Weight control to avoid obesity Physical therapy and stretching exercises to prevent contractures of the elbows Use of mechanical aids such as canes, walkers, and wheelchairs[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]
