Cardiac abnormalities, cardiomyopathy and skeletal muscle weakness have been described in female carriers of the Xp21 (Duchenne and Becker) muscular dystrophies (J Neurol 1975;209(4):279-285; Br Med J 1969;2:418-420; J AmMed Assoc 1996;275(17):1335-1338; Neurology 1980;30(5):497-501; Neuromusc Disord 1999;9:347-351; Arch Neurol 1989;46:673-675).
