Autosomal Recessive Limb-girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2g

Description

Autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2G (LGMD2G) is a mild subtype of autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy characterized by a variable onset (ranging from infancy to adolescence) of progressive proximal upper and lower limb muscle weakness and atrophy. Mild scapular winging, calf hypertrophy, and lack of respiratory and cardiac involvement are also observed.
