Abstract

The uncommon case is described of a girl severely affected with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Cytogenetic analysis revealed no numerical or structural abnormalities of the X-chromosome in any of the cells examined (leucocytes and myoblasts). No abnormality in morphology, growth pattern or differentiation was observed in the dystrophic muscle cultures as compared with control cultures.
