Definition

Muscular Dystrophy, Limb Girdle; Erb Muscular Dystrophy; LGMD; Leyden-Moebius Muscular Dystrophy; Pelvofemoral Muscular Dystrophy; Proximal Muscular Dystrophy; Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy is a group of inherited, progressive disorders that are characterized by weakness and wasting (atrophy) of muscles of the hip and shoulder areas; Several different forms of the disorder have been identified that are caused by abnormal changes (mutations) of certain genes; Of these disease subtypes, at least eight have autosomal recessive inheritance and at least three are transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait; In most individuals with Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy, associated symptoms and findings become apparent during childhood; However, less commonly, symptom onset may begin during adolescence or adulthood; Muscle weakness may spread from the lower limbs to the upper limbs or vice versa; Although the disorder typically progresses slowly, some affected individuals experience rapid disease progression---------[NORD]--------------------
