Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD) Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy is a form of muscular dystrophy that typically begins before age 20 with slowly progressive weakness of the muscles of the face, shoulders, and feet. The severity of the disease is quite variable. Although most people with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) retain the ability to walk, about 20% require a wheelchair. Life expectancy is not shortened. The diagnosis can be confirmed by a DNA test.
