Duchenne and Becker Muscular Dystrophy
Patients with Duchenne or Becker Muscular Dystrophy, as well as carrier females.
- Genetic mutation [ Time Frame: Registrants are requested to update their medical history every 6-12 months, and they will be followed throughout their lifetime. ]Genetic mutation data is collected by patient report and verified by curation/review of genetic test report when provided. Genetic test report is requested for each registrant and is required for participation in global DMD (TREAT-NMD) registry.

- Cardiovascular status [ Time Frame: Registrants are requested to update their medical history every 6-12 months, and they will be followed throughout their lifetime. ]Multiple questions regarding cardiovascular symptoms, age at diagnosis of cardiomyopathy, use of cardiac medications, date of most recent echocardiogram and/or cardiac MRI, and the LVEF and/or LVSF value.
- Respiratory status [ Time Frame: Registrants are requested to update their medical history every 6-12 months, and they will be followed throughout their lifetime. ]Assessed from questions about use of breathing devices, age at which breathing devices were started, date of most recent pulmonary function test (spirometry), and the FVC value (% predicted and raw FVC in liters).
