X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy

"X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy is a form of heart disease. " Dilated cardiomyopathy enlarges and weakens the heart muscle, hindering the heart from pumping blood efficiently. Heart abnormalities in males with X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy usually begin early in life and escalate rapidly, resulting in heart disease in adolescence or early adulthood. People with X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy have no skeletal muscle loss or wasting, although they may have subtle changes in their skeletal muscle cells that are detectable by laboratory analysis. Basing on these skeletal muscle changes, X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy is sometimes described as subordinate Becker muscular dystrophy.
