  • 2. INTRODUCTION MUSCLE DYSTROPHY  Are groups of inherited neuromuscular disorders  Characterized by progressive weakness and wasting of the muscles  The most common form is Duchenne muscular dystrophy
  • 3.  DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY  1 : 3500 boys, X – linked disease  Cause :  Mutation in the dystrophyn gene, located on the x - chromosome  Part of the gene is missing  Body cannot make dystrophin  Progressive degeneration of all the muscles
  • 4. SYMPTOMS Fatigue Muscle weakness & wasting Frequent falls Difficulty in walking Limitation of movement Difficulty in getting up from a lying or sitting position
  • 5. DIAGNOSIS Gower‘s sign Serum CK EMG Chromosome analysis Genetic test : dystrophin mutation Muscle biopsy
  • 6. THERAPY Steroid Physical therapy Orthopaedic appliances Breathing aids Gene therapy Stem cell therapy
  • 7. Potential uses of stem cells
  • 8. CASE JAN 2010  Boy, 7,5 yrs, 19 Kgs  Contact Dermatitis  Muscle weakness, losing weight and develop a difficulty in walking ( 2 yrs )  Referred to Dr. Soetomo Hospital Surabaya. MAY 2012  Dr. Soetomo Hospital Surabaya :  Gowers’s sign : positive  Serum CK : 109 ( normal < 171 )  EMG : myopathy  Diagnosed : DMD  NO TREATMENT
