Similar fatty infiltration distribution patterns, predominantly involving the posterior compartment of the thigh, were also reported in mitochondrial diseases [20] and limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD).[21],[22],[23] LGMD-2A showed more severe fatty infiltration in the adductor major, adductor longus, and semimembranosus, with sparing of the anterior compartment of the thigh, at the early stage of disease.[21],[22] Similarly, LGMD-2B presented with large variations in fatty infiltration between the anterior and posterior compartments of the thigh.[23] However, the edema distribution patterns between LGMD-2B and IMNM or MADD were different.
