Pediatric Neurology – Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

October 17, 2021


In addition to that, there’s a whole bunch of different disorders that affect muscle and nerve. And probably the most common one that people know about is Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which is a disorder that affects muscles primarily in boys. And these children start out doing great, but by the time they get into their four in toddler five years, toddler years later, they start developing progressive weakness of muscle where they can’t even get up off the floor. And these disorders are now being treated where heretofore, i.e. 10 years ago, they couldn’t be treated at all. And there are treatments for these children and they are now walking into their twenties and even later, whereas before this, they were wheelchair bound by 12. So there have been improvements there.
