Introduction: Becker Muscular Dystrophy


Becker Muscular Dystrophy: A genetic recessive disease that affects muscles. Becker Muscular Dystrophy is a subtype of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy where the mutation-caused defect in the dystrophin gene is milder than the classic cases. Hence, the dystrophin protein is less severely affected and hence muscle weakness and degeneration is milder.
