Becker muscular dystrophy
Becker muscular dystrophy primarily causes progressive skeletal and cardiac muscle degeneration. Common presentations include proximal muscle weakness or myalgias, cardiomyopathy, elevated serum levels of creatine kinase, or, more rarely, malignant hyperthermia after exposure to halothane anesthesia. It is an X-linked recessive neuromuscular disease.
