Description 18 TWENTIETH ANNUAL REYNOLDS LECTURE Fi gure 5 shows an individual affected with this type of dystrophy, and Figures 6 and 7 show a pedigree history of a large kindred showing the same trait. It has taken many years to accumulate this data. Our policy has been to communicate personally with every available member of the kindred and to provide for an examination by the clinician whenever possible. Almost without exception members of the kindred have been cooperative and helpful. This is but one of over a dozen unrelated kindreds showing the same trait on which we have taken data. Of the 1,249 individuals considered in this kindred, 159 are known to have had muscular dystrophy. The inheritance is that of a Mendelian dominant. A kindred of this type is valuable not only because it provides large numbers and makes the genetic pattern easier to determine, but it makes diagnosis easier for the physician. It gives him an opportunity to see the disease in all of its different forms of expression. Because of this he is able to detect and identify isolated cases of varying degrees of expression.
