In Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy calf muscles initially enlarge during the age of 5-15 (an attempt by the body to compensate for loss of muscle strength), but the enlarged muscle tissue is eventually replaced by fat and connective tissues (pseodohypertrophy) as the legs become less used (wheel chair).
