Overview

Epidemiology and Demographics

AMC is relatively rare occurring in 1 out of every 3,000 live births. Amyoplasia, characterized by fatty and fibrous tissue replacement of the limb muscles, is the most common form (43%).[1] The majority of affected individuals survive but a minority die, usually due to respiratory muscle involvement.
