A Case Report of Early Therapeutic Intervention for Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy in Late Adolescence
The benefits of a strength and endurance training-based programme in the early rehabilitation of patients with Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy are described in this study (LGMD). The autosomal recessive disorder Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy-Type 2A (LGMD-2A) is caused by a mutation in the Calpain-3 gene (CAPN3), which causes partial or total protein deficiency. In India, LGMD-2A is the most common form of the disease, accounting for 47% of all cases in the heterogeneous group. We present a 22-year-old woman who has had difficulty walking for one year due to proximal muscular weakness and an increased Creatine Phosphokinase (CPK) with aberrant muscle biopsy findings. The patient was given an 8-week intervention and given a prognosis.
