Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy

Emery-Dreifuss is a muscle wasting condition. It usually begins in childhood or adolescence. The features, which make it unique and different from other muscular dystrophies, are the early development of muscle contractures, the distribution of muscle weakness, and the fact that the heart may be affected in a particular way.
