Myopathy, X-Linked, with Excessive Autophagy malady
Rare diseases, Neuronal diseases categories
NIH Rare Diseases:41 X-linked myopathy with excessive autophagy (xmea) is a type of inherited myopathy (muscle disease) that mainly affects males. it is characterized by muscle weakness that slowly worsens over time. weakness involving the upper legs, affecting activities such as running and climbing stairs, may be noticed first. as the condition progresses, men with xmea may experience weakness in their lower legs and arms. some people with xmea remain able to walk in advanced age, while others require assistance in adulthood. it is caused by mutations in the vma21 gene and is inherited in an x-linked recessive fashion. last updated: 10/10/2011
MalaCards based summary: Myopathy, X-Linked, with Excessive Autophagy, also known as x-linked myopathy with excessive autophagy, is related to myopathy and danon disease, and has symptoms including x-linked recessive inheritance, myotonia and myopathy. An important gene associated with Myopathy, X-Linked, with Excessive Autophagy is VMA21 (VMA21 vacuolar H+-ATPase homolog (S. cerevisiae)).
