BACKGROUND Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) and X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy often result from deletion mutations in the dystrophin gene that may lead to expression of an altered dystrophin protein in cardiac muscle. Cardiac involvement is present in approximately 70% of BMD and all X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy cases. To date, the timing of… (More)
