Congenital Muscular Dystrophies are a rare group of genetically inherited diseases causing muscle weakness at birth. Several defined genetic mutations cause muscles to break down faster than they can repair or grow. A child with CMD may have various neurological or physical impairments. Some children never gain the ability to walk, while others lose the ability as they grow older. Affected individuals also may suffer from respiratory insufficiency, contractures, and scoliosis. There is currently no treatment or cure.
