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.

Genetic analysis showed that individuals in the group with childhood onset tended to have missense mutations, whereas those in the group with adult onset tended to have truncating mutations.

Emery–Dreifuss muscular dystrophy

In several families and sporadic cases mentioned in literature, the patterns in EMG or muscle biopsy or both were compatible with myopathy driefuss. Retrieved 10 May Mutations of the LMNA gene can mimic autosomal dominant proximal spinal muscular atrophy.

Arq Neuropsiquiatr, 64pp. This affection of the anterior horn cells and of the motor nuclei of some cranial nerves, dde present with cardiac abnormalities, in some cases, but not with atriventricular block 9. The 3 mutations were identified in all affected members of the corresponding families and were absent in unrelated control subjects.

Necrotic and regenerative fibers and increased endomysial connective tissue may also be detected. Unusual type of benign X-linked muscular dystrophy. Physical examination revealed uncharacteristic facial features, normal body mass index, irregular heartbeat on cardiac auscultation but no murmur, normal pulmonary auscultation, palpable and symmetrical radial and femoral pulses, and soft abdomen, with no organomegaly. The only symptoms he reported were sporadic dizziness and fatigue during sports activities, but no pre-syncope, syncope or palpitations.


Retrieved 19 May Bethlem J, Knobbout CE. However, that was followed by irrecoverable asystole. Tauopathy Cavernous venous malformation.

The authors noted some unique features in this family, including early age at onset, rapid progression, early muscle contractures, and a high incidence of severe cardiomyopathy. Multipoint linkage mapping of the Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy gene.

Study of his brother, aged 21, also established a diagnosis of EDMD1. OMIM is intended for use primarily by physicians and other professionals concerned with genetic disorders, by genetics researchers, and by advanced students in science and medicine. After genetic study identified the same mutation as found in his brother and established a diagnosis of EDMD1, it was decided to implant a permanent pacemaker VVIR.

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.

Br Heart J ; Immunohistochemical staining using an emerin antibody showed absence of the protein in a fragment of muscle tissue and genetic study identified a mutation associated with EDMD1. Cardiac symptoms appear between the third and fifth decades of life and may result in sudden death 5,6.

However, the authors suggested that they could be allelic disorders.

Both groups also had an increased frequency of sudden death in distroria family. Neurological disorders and cardiovascular disease EMG and biopsies indicated a myopathy.
