About this section


Fully expand this MalaCard
Genetics Home Reference:21 Bethlem myopathy is a condition that mainly affects skeletal muscles, which are the muscles used for movement. People with this condition experience progressive muscle weakness and develop joint stiffness (contractures) in their fingers, wrists, elbows, and ankles that can restrict movement. Approximately two-thirds of people with Bethlem myopathy over age 50 will need to use a walker or wheelchair.

MalaCards based summary: Bethlem Myopathy, also known as benign congenital muscular dystrophy, is related to ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy and myopathy, and has symptoms including camptodactyly of fingers, myopathy and abnormal muscle biopsy/muscle enzymes/cpk/ldh/aldolase/creatin phosphokinase. An important gene associated with Bethlem Myopathy is COL6A3 (collagen, type VI, alpha 3), and among its related pathways are Non-integrin membrane-ECM interactions and Protein digestion and absorption. Affiliated tissues include skeletal muscle and heart.
