Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy

Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD or FSH) is characterised by muscle weakness that affects the muscles of the face, shoulders and arms and appears in adolescence or adulthood. This disease is due to a change in the structure of a small region of chromosome 4, the D4Z4 region.
