Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy (X-Linked Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy)

A heterogenous group of inherited muscular dystrophy without the involvement of nervous system. The disease is characterized by MUSCULAR ATROPHY; MUSCLE WEAKNESS; CONTRACTURE of the elbows; ACHILLES TENDON; and posterior cervical muscles; with or without cardiac features. There are several INHERITANCE PATTERNS including X-linked (X CHROMOSOME), autosomal dominant, and autosomal recessive gene mutations.
Also Known As:
X-Linked Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy; Scapuloperoneal Muscular Dystrophy; Muscular Dystrophy, Emery-Dreifuss; Autosomal Dominant Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy; Autosomal Recessive Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy; Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy 2; Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy, Autosomal Recessive; Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy, X-Linked; Emery-Dreifuss Type Muscular Dystrophy; Hauptmann-Thannhauser Muscular Dystrophy; Muscular Dystrophy, Emery-Dreifuss Type; Muscular Dystrophy, Emery-Dreifuss, Autosomal Dominant; Muscular Dystrophy, Emery-Dreifuss, Autosomal Recessive; Muscular Dystrophy, Scapuloperoneal; Scapuloilioperoneal Atrophy with Cardiopathy; Scapuloperoneal Syndrome, X-Linked; Autosomal Dominant Emery Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy; Autosomal Recessive Emery Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy; Emery Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy 2; Emery Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy, Autosomal Recessive; Emery Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy, X Linked; Emery Dreifuss Syndrome; Hauptmann Thannhauser Muscular Dystrophy; Muscular Dystrophy, Emery Dreifuss; Scapuloperoneal Syndrome, X Linked; X Linked Emery Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy; X-Linked Scapuloperoneal Syndrome; Emery-Dreifuss Syndrome; Muscular Dystrophy, Emery-Dreifuss, X-Linked
