A case of a child with Becker's muscular dystrophy is presented. Because of the genetic and clinical similarity with the more common Duchenne muscular dystrophy, these two diseases are compared. Since muscular dystrophy often initially presents with toe walking, flat-foot, and waddling gait, podiatrists may be the first physicians to see the child and provide early diagnosis.
