Genetics Home Reference:21 LAMA2-related muscular dystrophy is a disorder that causes weakness and wasting (atrophy) of muscles used for movement (skeletal muscles). This condition generally appears in one of two ways: as a severe, early-onset type or a milder, late-onset form.

MalaCards based summary: Lama2-Related Muscular Dystrophy, also known as mdc1a, is related to muscular dystrophy and congenital muscular dystrophy. An important gene associated with Lama2-Related Muscular Dystrophy is LAMA2 (laminin, alpha 2). Affiliated tissues include skeletal muscle.
