Khadilkar Satish V, Menezes Krishe M, Singh Rakesh K, Hegde Madhuri R


Severe childhood autosomal recessive muscular dystrophy (SCARMD) is characterized by a severe Duchene muscular dystrophy like phenotype. Most such cases represent alpha or gamma sarcoglycanopathies. Mental subnormality is very uncommon and other central nervous system deficits have not been documented in patients with SCARMD. We report a brother and sister with the SCARMD phenotype, who additionally had static mental subnormality and choreiform movements. Work-up for sarcolgycan genes, dystrophin gene and known causes of mental retardation and chorea was normal.
