Disease Muscular Dystrophies, Limb-Girdle

Name Muscular Dystrophies, Limb-Girdle
Synonyms Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophies | Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophies | Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy | Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy | Limb-Girdle Syndrome | Muscular Dystrophies, Limb Girdle | Muscular Dystrophy, Limb Girdle | Muscular Dystrophy, Limb-Girdle | Myopathic Limb-Girdle Syndrome
Definition A heterogenous group of inherited muscular dystrophy that can be autosomal dominant or autosomal recessive. There are many forms (called LGMDs) involving genes encoding muscle membrane proteins such as the sarcoglycan (SARCOGLYCANS) complex that interacts with DYSTROPHIN. The disease is characterized by progressing wasting and weakness of the proximal muscles of arms and legs around the HIPS and SHOULDERS (the pelvic and shoulder girdles).
