NIH Rare Diseases:42 Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy is a group of disorders which affect the voluntary muscles around the hips and shoulders. the conditions are progressive, leading to a loss of muscle strength and bulk over a number of years. onset may occur in childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, or even later. males and females are affected in equal numbers. most cases of limb girdle muscular dystrophy are inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. rarely, autosomal dominant cases have been reported. while there are no treatments which directly reverse the muscle weakness associated with this condition, supportive treatment can decrease the complications. there are at least 19 different types of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy. last updated: 11/1/2010

MalaCards based summary: Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy, also known as limb-girdle muscular dystrophy autosomal recessive, is related to muscular dystrophy and miyoshi myopathy. An important gene associated with Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy is DYSF (dysferlin), and among its related pathways are Allograft rejection and Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). The compound creatinine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skeletal muscle, heart and bone, and related mouse phenotypes are behavior/neurological and cardiovascular system.

Disease Ontology:8 A muscular dystrophy that is characterized by weakening of the muscles of the hip and shoulders which comprise the limb girdle muscles.

Genetics Home Reference:21 Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy is a term for a group of diseases that cause weakness and wasting of the muscles in the arms and legs. The muscles most affected are those closest to the body (proximal muscles), specifically the muscles of the shoulders, upper arms, pelvic area, and thighs.
