PMID:  3399077     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a unique presentation of X-linked recessive dystrophy as neonatal rhabdomyolysis. There was induration of the proximal musculature in an otherwise well neonate and striking CK elevation, without myoglobinuria. Muscle biopsy at age 1 year showed dystrophic alterations, and X chromosome analysis showed a deletion within or adjacent to the Duchenne/Becker locus.
