With over 30 distinct types as well as subtypes known and several more to be recognized and sorted, muscular dystrophy is an extremely heterogeneous group of inherited neuromuscular disorders. The book presents an elaborative analysis of the different types of muscular dystrophies, genes related to each subtype, disease diagnosis, management as well as available treatment options. Though every distinct type and subtype of muscular dystrophy is related to a distinct causative gene, most of them have overlapping clinical presentations, making molecular diagnosis certain for both patient management as well as disease diagnosis. Discussions regarding the presently available diagnostic approaches that have revolutionized clinical research are presented in this profound book along with the pathophysiology of the various muscular dystrophies, all-round functions of the involved genes as well as efforts towards efficient patient management and diagnosis.
