Abstract
We want to report one case of Duchenne type muscular dystrophy in a female. This patient was seven years of age. Clinical symptoms first appeared at age 3 and progressed insiduously. The Gower's sign was positive. She had a borther who had similar clinical signs and symptoms. He died at age 12. An increased ratio of creatine and creatinine was noted in the patient, with high titers of S.G.O.T., L.D.H. and C.P.K. The muscle biopsy findings showed typical advanced histological changes, that is, great variations in the size of muscle fibers, interstitial fibrosis and infiltration of fat.
Key Words: Duchenne type, muscular dystrophy, in a female
