AUTOSOMAL RECESSIVE LIMB-GIRDLE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY TYPE 2W


Alternate names

AUTOSOMAL RECESSIVE LIMB-GIRDLE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY TYPE 2W Is also known as lgmd2w

Description

Autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2W is a subtype of autosomal recessive limb girdle muscular dystrophy characterized by childhood onset of severe, progressive, proximal skeletal muscle weakness and atrophy of the upper and lower limbs with later involvement of distal muscles and development of severe quadraparesis, calf hypertrophy, triangular tongue, and dilated cardiomyopathy. Skeletal muscles undergo diffuse, bilateral, symmetric and severe atrophy with fat infiltration.

Most common symptoms of AUTOSOMAL RECESSIVE LIMB-GIRDLE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY TYPE 2W

  • Muscle weakness
  • Skeletal muscle atrophy
  • Talipes equinovarus
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Elevated serum creatine phosphokinase
