Weakness and Progressive Muscle Tightness Diagnosed as Kennedy Disease
International Clinical Neuroscience Journal
Kennedy disease is a rare X-linked neurodegenerative disorder that affects patients in 30-50 years of age. It is caused by CAG-repeat in androgen receptor gen. There is no known effective treatment for Kennedy disease. We report a 60-year-old man who had fasciculations and proximal and distal muscle weakness. Physical examination showed involvement of the bulbar musculature accompanied by tongue atrophy and perioral muscle weakness. Furthermore, he had bilateral gynecomastia.
