Muscular Disorder

A muscular disorder is a condition when the muscles weaken and get damaged over time. This neurological condition occurs due to a deficiency of dystrophin protein.

There are several types of muscular dystrophy:

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD): It is the most common form of muscular disorder among children (especially males) at birth.

Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD): It is less severe than DMD.

Congenital muscular dystrophy: This condition is found both in both males and females by the age of 2 years

Facioscapulohumeral (FSHD): This condition is also known as Landouzy-Dejerine disease. The face, shoulders and upper arms get affected in this condition.

Myotonic: It is a condition in which a person cannot relax muscles. The signs are first visible on the face and neck.

Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD): A person gets weakened and loses muscle bulk. The symptoms are first seen on the face and shoulders.



The main cause of this neurological condition is genes. It occurs when one of the genes that produce protein is defective.
