Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD). is an autosomal dominant form of muscular dystrophy characterized by progressive weakness and wasting of the facial. shoulder-girdle and upper arm muscles. Recently, FSHD is diagnosed by a molecular genetic test showing a deletion of integral copies to a 3.3 kb DNA repeat motif named D4Z4. We report a family showing clinical and genetic findings consistent with the FSHD.
Key Words: Autosomal dominant; D4Z4; Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy
