NIH Rare Diseases:44 Emery-dreifuss muscular dystrophy is a condition that affects the joints, muscles, and heart. joint symptoms tend to present in childhood and involve contractures of the elbows, ankles, and neck. children and adults with this dystrophy usually experience slowly worsening muscle weakness and wasting. by adulthood, most people with  emery-dreifuss muscular dystrophy develop heart problems, such as conduction defects and arrhythmias. emery-dreifuss muscular dystrophy is caused by mutations in the emd and lmna genes. it can be inherited in an x-linked, autosomal dominant, or autosomal recessive fashion. last updated: 8/16/2013

MalaCards: Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy, also known as muscular dystrophy, emery-dreifuss, is related to muscular dystrophy and emery-dreifuss muscular dystrophy 2, ad. An important gene associated with Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy is LMNA (lamin A/C), and among its related pathways are Regulation of Glucokinase by Glucokinase Regulatory Protein and Mitotic Metaphase and Anaphase. Affiliated tissues include heart, skeletal muscle and skin, and related mouse phenotypes are vision/eye and cardiovascular system.

Genetics Home Reference:22 Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy is a condition that chiefly affects muscles used for movement (skeletal muscles) and heart (cardiac) muscle. Among the earliest features of this disorder are joint deformities called contractures, which restrict the movement of certain joints. Contractures become noticeable in early childhood and most often involve the elbows, ankles, and neck. Most affected individuals also experience slowly progressive muscle weakness and wasting, beginning in muscles of the upper arms and lower legs and progressing to muscles in the shoulders and hips.
