One large family has been described. [49]

Onset is from the first year of life to the mid-50s.

Proximal weakness is noted early, with distal weakness as a late finding. Scapular winging may be noted.

Patients with a young onset may have rapid progression and require use of a wheelchair by their 20s–30s. They may also have facial and respiratory weakness and/or spinal deformity.
