Distal myopathies are distal muscular dystrophies because they are genetic disorders with progressive loss of muscle tissue. The true distal dystrophies not only show a distal onset; they also remain more distal than proximal throughout the course of the disease. Currently almost 20 different entities of distal muscular dystrophies have been genetically… (More)
