Genetic Disease: Any disease that is handed down to oneself through the chromosomes of ones parents
Multiminicore disease (MmD): A rare congenital muscle disorder involving weakness and wasting of skeletal muscles. The term minicore comes from the small core structures that occur in the muscle tissue. There are four subgroups of the disorder: classic form (rigid spine syndrome), progressive form with hand involvement, antenatal form with arthrogryposis multiplex congenital and the ophthalmoplegic form. The rate of progression and severity of symptoms is variable.
