Autosomal dominant Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy Summary. This disease is described under Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy. Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy, characterized by the clinical triad of joint contractures, muscle weakness and cardiac involvement. A distrofia muscular de Emery Dreifus tipo 1 (DMED1) é uma doença familiar, com transmissão recessiva ligada ao X, resultante da mutação de uma proteína.

Study of his brother, aged 21, also established a diagnosis of EDMD1.

Clinical manifestations usually occur in adolescence and include contractures, muscle atrophy and weakness, and cardiac conduction disturbances. Autosomal dominant Emery-Dreifuss syndrome: Print Send to a friend Export reference Mendeley Statistics.

Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy 5, autosomal dominant. This x-linked type of EDMD is had via mutations in the FHL1 gene, where protein gels Western blots indicate less band expression, with mutations in exon on the gene [14] [15]. Retrieved 10 May Striate palmoplantar keratoderma 2 Carvajal syndrome Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia 8 plectin: At age 7 years, she had generalized hypotonia, waddling gait, and severe limb muscle wasting and weakness. SNIP measures contextual citation impact by wighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.

Ann Intern Med ; Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy with autossomal dominant transmission. Relative proportion and main clinical features for the four mapped autossomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophies in 12 Brazilian families. Slight CK elevation, present in both ddistrofia patients, strengthens the suspicion of muscular disease.

Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy

Its functions are poorly understood, but it is assumed to play a crucial role in regulating gene expression and maintaining nuclear structure.

Criteria to establish diagnosis of EDMD have been recently postulated 2: J Med Genet ; Therefore, it should be very interesting to consider the possibility of the existence of two distinctive genetic disorders, resulting from different electromyographic and biopsy patterns as reported in literature, but giving rise to similar phenotypic expressions.

Views Read Edit View history. However, findings are similar to those cases of this disease described in literature 1,6 but, in some of them the alterations are more remarkable.

At 13 years she had a high-arched palate, moderate limb hypotonia, and weakness of the pelvic muscles. A bonus to all MIMmatch users is the option to sign up for updates on new gene-phenotype relationships. CC ]. InRowland et al.

Emery–Dreifuss muscular dystrophy

Distrofia muscular de Emery-Dreifuss: Family history dreofuss that the paternal grandmother had proximal muscle weakness and died from heart disease at age 52, and a paternal aunt had ‘walking difficulties’ since youth. J Med Genet accepted. Only comments written in English can be smery. Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy 7, AD. March Pages Additional information Further information on this disease Classification s 4 Gene s 4 Clinical signs and symptoms Other website s 2.

Although EDMD is not such a disabling disorder physically as the Duchenne and Becker forms, the combination of progressive muscle weakness and, in particular, the serious cardiac complications result in considerable morbidity and at times mortality, so that accurate identification of carrier status and prenatal prediction using closely linked probes 8,12 should be of help to family members.

Heart transplantation is justified in refractory cases. Syncopal episodes, as in the case of our patient, had their onset at age 24, with no other symptoms reported until then. Emery—Dreifuss muscular dystrophy is a condition that mainly affects muscles used for movement, such as skeletal muscles and also affects the cardiac muscle, it is named after Alan Eglin H.


LGMD1B was characterized as an autosomal dominant, slowly progressive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy with age-related atrioventricular cardiac conduction disturbances and the absence of early contractures. Neuromuscul Disord, 12pp. Charcot—Marie—Tooth disease 2A Hereditary spastic paraplegia The proband developed cardiomyopathy at age 45; her twin daughters had no signs of cardiomyopathy at age 21 years.

Skeletal muscle involvement included humeroperoneal wasting and weakness, scapular winging, rigidity of the spine, and elbow and Achilles tendon contractures. J Med Genet, 26pp.

Twenty-nine members of the family were examined, of whom 11 were classified as affected and 4 had both cardiac and peripheral muscle symptoms. Cardiac dysrhythmias, cardiomyopathy and muscular dystrophy in patients muscuar Emery-Dreifuss dystrophy and Limb-Girdle muscular dystrophy type 1B. Two patients had dilated cardiomyopathy.

The two brothers are being monitored in annual consultations in cardiology and neurology. Only the correlation with clinical data, particularly neurological data, led us to suspect an EDMD.

There were no abnormalities of the central nervous system or the spinal cord.

Examination at age 30 showed marked midface hypoplasia with a broad nasal bridge. The disorder was intermediate between typical limb-girdle muscular dystrophy e.
