Advances in limb-girdle muscular dystrophy

Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) is a heterogeneous group of rare genetic muscle diseases. These diseases manifest as a deficit and atrophy of the pelvis muscles (pelvic girdle) and the shoulder muscles (pectoral girdle). The disease manifestations vary significantly, from simple muscle fatigue to forms that can result in an inability to walk, with or without cardiac and/or respiratory complications.
