in 2002.[32] So far, 11 more genes have been implicat in WWS, including POMT2, FKRP, FKTN, ISPD, CTDC2, TMEM5, POMGNT1, B3GALNT2, GMPPB, B3GNT1 , and SGK196 .
Besides MDC1C and LGMD2I caused by pathogenic mutations in FKRP gene, CMD/LGMD without MR was also reported in patients with mutations of other three genes, including FKTN, ISPD , and GMPPB .
CMD/LGMD with MR is a subtype in the intermediate of the clinical spectrum of aDG-RD, characterized by early onset of muscle weakness, usually before ambulation is achieved; mental retardation and mild brain anomalies are variable.[38] The causative genes of the subtype include FKRP, POMT1, POMT2, ISPD , and GMPPB .
