2013 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 359.1
Hereditary progressive muscular dystrophy
- Pelvic muscle weakness and atrophy associated with pseudohypertrophy of the calves. Two basic types are recognized: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (Type I) Synonym: childhood pseudohypertrophic muscular dystrophy with the onset of symptoms between the ages of 3 and 5 years, the patients becoming bedridden by age of 12 and death by age 20 to 25 years. Becker muscular dystrophy (Type II) Synonyms: adult pseudohypertrophic muscular dystrophy mild or benign X-linked recessive muscular dystrophy with onset of symptoms between the ages of 20 and 30 years and relatively normal life expectancy in most cases. Atrophic changes begin in the muscles of the pectoral girdle and trunk and extend to the extremities. As their size increases, the muscles become firm and resilient, but their strength diminishes and, eventually, atrophy ensues. Inability to rise to an upright position without turning to the side, waddling gait, and progressive weakness are the characteristic features. Pseudohypertrophy of the calf muscles is due to fibrous tissue and fat infiltration. Involvement of the heart consists of usually terminal cardiomyopathy. Fasciculation and atrophy of the tongue with dysphagia, dysarthria, and thickened nasal speech are usually associated. Usually mild and static mental retardation occurs in about 30% DMD patients most children having normal, even superior intelligence.
- X-linked recessive muscle disease caused by an inability to synthesize dystrophin, which is involved with maintaining the integrity of the sarcolemma; muscle fibers undergo a process that features degeneration and regeneration; clinical manifestations include proximal weakness in the first few years of life, pseudohypertrophy, cardiomyopathy and an increased incidence of impaired mentation; Becker muscular dystrophy is a closely related condition featuring a later onset of disease (usually adolescence) and a slowly progressive course.
- general term for a group of inherited disorders which are characterized by progressive degeneration of skeletal muscles.
- A progressive disorder involving pelvic and scapular girdle muscles marked by weakness of proximal muscles of hip and shoulder areas with variable psychiatric disorders and occasional mild mental retardation. Type IA (LGMD1A) Synonym: proximal limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 1A A slowly progressive form of muscular dystrophy affecting the proximal limb muscles but sparing the face. (159000) Type IB (LGMD1B) Synonym: proximal limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 1B A slowly progressive form of muscular dystrophy differing from LGMD1A by the nasal quality of speech. (OMIM 159001) Type 2 (LGMD2, LGMD2A) Synonyms: Leyden-Mobius syndrome distal muscular dystrophy pelvofemoral muscular dystrophy pelvofemoral syndrome tibial muscular dystrophy Muscular dystrophy involving first the pelvic or, less commonly, shoulder girdle with occasional pseudohypertrophy of the calves with onset usually in childhood but sometimes in later stages of life. Muscle wasting tends to be asymmetric when the upper limbs are first involved. Progression of disease varies with inability to walk usually taking place at about 20 to 30 years of onset. Facial weakness and contractures may occur later. (OMIM 253600) Type 3 (LGMD3, LGMD2B) A slowly progressive form of muscular dystrophy involving the pelvic girdle with onset in the late teens. (OMIM 253601)
