Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) Understanding
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most common form of muscular dystrophy in childhood. It is a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness. It is one of nine types of muscular dystrophy.
DMD is caused by an absence of dystrophin, a protein that helps keep muscle cells intact. Symptom onset is in early childhood, usually between ages 3–5. The disease primarily affects boys, but in rare cases it can affect girls. DMD is inherited as an X-linked disease. X-linked genetic disorders are conditions caused by an abnormal gene on the X chromosome and manifest mostly in males. Females that have a defective gene present on one of their X chromosomes are carriers for that disorder. Carrier females usually do not display symptoms because females have two X chromosomes and only one carries the defective gene. Males have one X chromosome that is inherited from their mother and if a male inherits an X chromosome that contains a defective gene he will develop the disease.
The clinical hallmarks of DMD include weakness and wasting of various voluntary muscles of the body. In most advanced stages of the disease, the heart and gut muscles will be affected. Symptoms of DMD are usually noticed in boys between 1–6 years of age. A steady decline occurs in muscle strength between the ages of 6–11 years. By age 10, braces may be needed for walking. By age 13, most boys with DMD are using a wheelchair full-time. Children with DMD are often late walkers. In toddlers, parents may notice enlarged calf muscles. This enlargement is known as pseudohypertrophy, or "false enlargement," because the muscle tissue is abnormal and may contain scar tissue. A preschooler with DMD may seem clumsy and fall often. Parents also may note that children have trouble climbing stairs, getting up from the floor or running.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) Epidemiology Perspective
