Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a severe type of muscular dystrophy. The symptom of muscle weakness usually begins around the age of four in boys . Fukuyama type muscular dystrophy (FCMD) is a congenital progressive muscular dystrophy characterized by brain malformation (cobblestone lissencephaly).

He showed hypotonia from birth, achieved head control at age 2 years, and sat fuouyama at age 4 years, but was unable to slide on his buttocks. Genetic epidemiology of congenital muscular dystrophy in a sample from north-east Italy. Female carriers of an X-linked recessive condition, such as DMD, can show symptoms depending on their pattern of X-inactivation.

Duchenne muscular dystrophy

Differential diagnoses include Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies, and other muscular dystrophies associating a type II lissencephaly known as dystroglycanopathies; see these terms. Two independent point mutations This hypothesis is supported by the fact that fukutin-deficient chimeric mice show a ed phenotype that closely resembles WWS [ Takeda et al ].

Cardiac involvement in Fukuyama-type disrofia muscular dystrophy. Yoshioka and Kuroki performed clinical and genetic studies in 41 families with FCMD in Japan in an attempt to distinguish it from the Walker-Warburg syndrome and muscle-eye-brain disease, both of which, like FCMD, show an association of type II lissencephaly and ocular anomalies.
