Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) is a genetic disease concerning slowly innovative muscle degeneration within which the muscle groups of the face, shoulder blades and higher palms are one of the such a lot significantly affected. it's the 3rd commonest inherited muscular dystrophy, affecting 1 in 20,000. the quest for the molecular foundation of the sickness is of curiosity to all genetic researchers, concerning a deletion outdoor a coding quarter leading to over-expression of adjoining genes. This quantity summarizes the present realizing of the disease, together with medical, molecular and healing points.
