Overview Limb girdle muscular dystrophy 2L (LGMD2L)

Limb girdle muscular dystrophy 2L (LGMD2L) known as anoctaminopathy is an autosomal recessive form of limb girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD).

The age of onset of muscle weakness is variable but most commonly in adulthood, between 20 and 50 years of age.

Based on our current knowledge about this form of LGMD, life expectancy is generally within a normal range because the heart and breathing muscles are usually not affected.
