Answer

Autosomal dominant LGMD is less common than autosomal recessive LGMD, accounting for about 10% of all cases. In general, patients with autosomal dominant LGMD have a later onset and slower course than those of autosomal recessive LGMD. Creatine kinase (CK) elevations are also not as great in autosomal dominant LGMD as in autosomal recessive LGMD.
