EmeryDreifuss 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. Emery and Fritz E. Dreifuss.[4][5] Symptoms of EDMD begin in teenage years with toe-walking, rigid spine, face weakness, hand weakness and calf hypertrophy.[3] Among other signs/symptoms of EmeryDreifuss muscular dystrophy are:[2][6] Mutations in the EMD, LMNA, and several other genes cause the various types of EmeryDreifuss muscular dystrophy.[1] The EMD and LMNA genes provide instructions for making proteins that are components of the nuclear envelope, which surrounds the nucleus in cells Continue reading
