Becker muscular dystrophy

(bek′ĕr)

[Peter E. Becker, Ger. geneticist, 1908-2000]
ABBR: BMD An X-linked recessive form of muscular dystrophy, typically first becoming evident in adolescence as difficulty with gait or with pelvic girdle muscle strength. It is characterized pathologically by inadequate production of dystrophin and thus is similar to, but usually milder than, Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
