Fukuyama congenital muscular dystrophy FCMD is a form of congenital muscular dystrophy. However, it has also been reported as far as Netherlands and Australia in patients without Japanese ancestry 1. Affected infants are hypotonic and have generalized symmetric weakness affecting proximal, distal, and facial muscles by 9 months of age 1,3. These features ultimately progress into childhood, and are accompanied by developmental delay and intellectual disability 1,3.
