THREE CASE SERIES INVOLVING PROGRESIVE MOTOR DEFICIT

ABSTRACT

The muscular dystrophyes are a group of inherited, non-inflamatory disorders, consisting of progresive muscle wasting, without perripheral or central nerve involvement. We present a series of three cases involving progresive motor deficit and their different evolutions. The first case is about a 57 year old female patient, without a significant family medical history, presenting for progresive motor deficit involving the shoulder and pelvic muscles, started at the age of 20 year old, when she was diagnosed with a sporadic form of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy. The second case is about a 27 year old male, diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at the age of 15. The third case is about a 43 year old male admitted for frequent falls and weakness of the limbs, mainly distal, started 10 years ago. He was diagnosed with myotonic dystrophy. Although there is still no treatment for muscular dystrophies, the pathology is under investigation in clinical trials.
