Facioscapulohumeral Dystrophy

Facioscapulohumeral Dystrophy (FSHD) is one of a number of uncommon inherited disorders called muscular dystrophies. Muscular dystrophy is a progressive weakening of skeletal muscles and has varying degrees of severity. FSHD mainly affects the face muscles and the muscles around the shoulder and shoulder blade.

For more information on FSHD see the FSH Society Patient Information website .
