Radiological characteristics of facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy 2

Takeaway

  • The radiological profile of fat replacement in facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy 2 (FSHD2) is similar to that of FSHD1, with involvement of the trapezius, abdominals and hamstrings and relative sparing of the iliopsoas and subscapularis.

Why this matters

    This radiological profile of FSHD2 can be used to inform further study of disease pathology and in the design of therapeutic trials.
