The Handbook of Clinical Neurology Vol 101: Muscular Dystrophies discusses the pathogenesis and treatment prospects for muscular dystrophies. It summarizes the advances in molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, and other biological sciences, with an emphasis on their application to this group of muscle disorders and to their clinical implications. Starting with an overview of muscular dystrophies, the book’s 16 chapters discuss dystrophinopathies; sarcoglycanopathies; congenital muscular dystrophies; collagen VI-related myopathies; limb-girdle muscular dystrophy 2A; dysferlinopathies; limb-girdle muscular dystrophy 2H and the role of TRIM32; and caveolinopathies. The book also covers myofibrillar myopathies; Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy; facioscapulohumeral dystrophy and scapuloperoneal syndromes; oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy; myotonic dystrophy types 1 and 2; and distal muscular dystrophies. This book is useful to basic investigators, as it offers an increased understanding of muscular dystrophies; and to clinicians, with its emphasis on issues that are relevant to the care, diagnosis, and management of patients with these disorders. Valuable insights into the muscular dystrophies, including treatment, diagnosis, and care and patient management A comprehensive compilation of the combined wisdom of the most highly regarded physicians, experts, and scientists studying the muscular dystrophies An evaluation of the way advances in molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, and other biological sciences continue to advance the study of these disorders

Skeletal muscle is a highly plastic organ that is modulated by various pathways controlling protein turnover. Muscle loss is common in muscular dystrophy, in which marked loss of various proteins such as the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex occurs around muscle fibers. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the various muscular dystrophies, including characteristics, diagnosis, and classification. General treatment of drugs (e.g. corticosteroids) and physical therapy for muscular dystrophies are discussed. In addition, current applications for cell and tissue engineering using

The muscular dystrophies are an important group of inherited disorders. They are characterized by muscle wasting and weakness, but vary considerably in their clinical manifestations and severity. This text reviews our understanding of the most important of these disorders. In many instances, the genes and protein products responsible for the dystrophies have been identified and it is now possible to establish a precise diagnosis, detect preclinical cases, identify carriers and offer prenatal dianostic testing. The book goes on to describe

Infancy- or childhood-onset muscular dystrophies may be associated with profound loss of muscle function, affecting ambulation, posture, cardiac and respiratory functions, while those of late onset may be mild and associated with slight weakness or fatigability induced by effort. In addition to the distribution of muscle weakness, symptoms, and course of the disease, the diagnosis of muscular dystrophy is usually ascertained by histological findings. There is connective tissue proliferation in the perimysium and endomysium, variation in muscle fiber size, cytoarchitectural

The congenital muscular dystrophies are a heterogeneous group of disorders in which weakness and dystrophic pattern on muscle biopsy are present at birth or during the first months of life. This chapter reviews the most common forms of congenital muscular dystrophies, including laminin α-2 (merosin) deficiency, Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy, fukutin-related proteinopathy, rigid spine syndrome, and glycosylation disorders of α-dystroglycan. The latter group is often associated with neuronal migration defects including lissencephaly, pachygyria, cerebellar and brainstem abnormalities, and variable ocular

The muscular dystrophies (MD) are a heterogeneous group of inherited disorders characterized by findings on muscle biopsy. In general, they feature progressive muscle wasting and weakness. In addition to the musculoskeletal system, direct and indirect effects can be seen in a variety of organ systems. These issues create challenges in patients with MD for ambulation and mobility, self-care, pain, fatigue, and community involvement. Because of its progressive nature and wide variety of pathophysiological mechanisms, patients with MD require individualized rehabilitation
