myotonic dystrophy type 2:
Inheritance: Autosomal dominant; Prevalence: 1-9/100000 (Europe); Age of onset: Adult; Age of death: elderly
NIH Rare Diseases:42 Myotonic dystrophy type 2, one of the two types of myotonic dystrophy, is an inherited muscular dystrophy that affects the muscles and other body systems (e.g., heart, eyes, and pancreas). it is characterized by prolonged muscle tensing (myotonia) as well as muscle weakness, pain, and stiffness. signs and symptoms usually develop during a person's twenties or thirties. muscles in the neck, fingers, elbows, and hips are typically affected; facial and ankle muscles are less commonly involved. the severity of myotonic dystrophy type 2 varies widely among affected people, even among family members. it is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern and is caused by mutations in the cnbp gene. treatment is based on each person's specific signs and symptoms. last updated: 2/10/2014
MalaCards based summary: Myotonic Dystrophy 2, also known as myotonic dystrophy type 2, is related to myotonic dystrophy and restless legs syndrome, and has symptoms including cataract, myotonia and autosomal dominant inheritance. An important gene associated with Myotonic Dystrophy 2 is CNBP (CCHC-type zinc finger, nucleic acid binding protein). Affiliated tissues include eye, heart and smooth muscle.
Disease Ontology:8 A myotonic disease that is characterized by myotonia and progressive, proximal muscle wasting and weakness affecting the skeletal and smooth muscles of the neck, shoulders, elbows and hips and has physical basis in the autosomal dominant inheritance of the cnbp (znf9) gene containing an expansion of a cctg repeat in intron one.
