NIH Rare Diseases:43 Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy is a disorder characterized by muscle weakness and wasting (atrophy). this condition gets its name from the areas of the body that are affected most often: muscles in the face (facio-), around the shoulder blades (scapulo-), and in the upper arms (humeral). the signs and symptoms of facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy usually appear in adolescence. however, the onset and severity of the condition varies widely. facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy results from a deletion of genetic material from a region of dna known as d4z4. this region is located near one end of chromosome 4. it is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern. last updated: 3/15/2013

MalaCards: Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy, also known as muscular dystrophy, facioscapulohumeral, is related to muscular dystrophy and retinitis. An important gene associated with Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy is DUX4 (double homeobox 4). Affiliated tissues include skeletal muscle, testes and heart.

Genetics Home Reference:21 Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy is a disorder characterized by muscle weakness and wasting (atrophy). This condition gets its name from the muscles that are affected most often: those of the face (facio-), around the shoulder blades (scapulo-), and in the upper arms (humeral). The signs and symptoms of facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy usually appear in adolescence. However, the onset and severity of the condition varies widely. Milder cases may not become noticeable until later in life, whereas rare severe cases become apparent in infancy or early childhood.
