Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a genetic disorder that causes severe muscle degeneration over time. Symptoms for Duchenne muscular dystrophy are usually noticed in males in early childhood between the ages of three and five and progress rapidly. Duchenne muscular dystrophy is caused by a damaged gene on the X chromosome, which prevents the body from making the protein dystrophin. Dystrophin aids in maintaining the structure of muscle cells, so without it, muscles weaken. There is no cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, but with cardiac and respiratory care along with physical and occupational therapy, individuals with the disorder are living longer.
