Ocular findings in muscular dystrophies


Ferhat Evliyaoglu, Ahmet Z. Burakgazi

Muscular dystrophies are a heterogeneous class of inherited disorders presenting with different clinical, genetic, and biochemical features. Musc ular dystrophies include Duchennemuscular dystrophy (DMD) and Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) myotonic dystrophy (DM), oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD), facioscapulohumeral muscular dy strophy (FSHD), limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD), distal muscular dystrophy, and congenital muscular dystrophy (CMD)types, each with a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations. Those muscular dystrophies can have similar symptoms or unique and specific presentations. This abstract will review the prevalence, clinical presentation, and management of ocular findings in certain muscular dystrophies.
