Primary dysferlinopathies are a rare heterogeneous group of autosomal recessive muscular dystrophies that are caused by mutations in the exon gene. Although no specific therapies exist for dysferlinopathies, these disorders entail multiple pathways to muscle cell death, each of which is potentially a target for. The clinical phenotype of the dysferlinopathies is quite variable. Affected individuals usually present with early involvement of the posterior calf muscles ( Miyoshi.

Management should be tailored to each individual and each specific subtype.

Am J Phys Med Rehabil. Type 1 fiber atrophy in tibial anterior parhies disproportion in proximal muscles. Over a period of years, the weakness and atrophy spread to the thighs and gluteal muscles, at which time climbing stairs, standing, and walking become difficult. Offspring of a proband. DMAT begins with anterior tibial muscle weakness which rapidly progresses to the lower and upper proximal muscles [ 11 ].

Some people with the disease can have a mild course, while others may have severe symptoms that can be fatal.


The early symptoms of these disorders are inability to stand on tip-toe, hop on one pqthies, run and difficulty to climb stairs [ 1013 ]. Miyoshi myopathy is characterized by the following: Later, the muscles involved are the vastus laterallis and the soleus muscles. In the cardiovascular magnetic resonance with late gadolinium it has been observed fibrosis of the different cardiac walls [ 45 ].

April 24, ; Published date: Differential Diagnosis Dysferlinopathy needs to be distinguished from other autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dysferln. Dysferlinopathy includes a spectrum of muscle disease characterized by two main phenotypes: Prenatal Testing and Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis Once the DYSF pathogenic variants have been identified in an affected family member, prenatal testing for a pregnancy at increased risk and preimplantation genetic diagnosis are possible.

Modifier genes are held responsible for this [ 2024 ]. As the disease progresses, muscle weakness extends to the posterior compartment involving the gastrocnemius. The other members of the family in mammals are otoferlin Fer-1L2; 2p In secondary dysferlinopathies, the reciprocal has been observed [ 7596 ].


The alterations of A1 in the A1-null mice show a great inflammatory response in muscles [ 9 ]. Laing early-onset distal myopathy MPD1. Distal myopathy with anterior tibial onset.

Carrier Heterozygote Detection Carrier testing for at-risk relatives requires prior identification of the DYSF pathogenic variants in the family.

It has been reported that patients suffer from subclinical cardiac impairment and some even have fibrosis of the cardiac muscle [ 45 ]. Neurology 60 Suppl A: Miyoshi muscular dystrophy type 1 MMD1 is also associated with muscle weakness, but the muscles involved are those away from the center of the body distal musclessuch as the legs and calves.

Dysferlin Fer-1L1which is patthies type II transmembrane protein, belongs to the ferlin family and does not belong to the dysfeflin complex. A general approach to appropriate management can prolong survival and improve quality of life.
