Duchenne Muscular Destrophy

Dear Health Team,
I've noticed week ago about a story of a child who was really healthful but when he reached 2.5 years his muscles started to stop working so he is not capable to walk or even sometimes to eat and also he lost his vision. Therefore, their perants went to various types of physicans but with no benefit ..
so i am right for diagnosing this as a Duchenne Muscular Destrophy?
Thanks alot,
Lamar

There are some muscular dystrophy websites that are entirely devoted to the various types of MD.  I have a friend who had MD, the hip-leg kind, so his was a little different from Duchenne.  But I just don't recall blindness being a part of that kind... I could be wrong, which is why I'm telling you to find some websites that will define the dozen or so types of MD.  They give age of onset and all the symptoms that go with them.  I'm sorry I don't have a link handy that will do that for you, but they're out there.  

But you were right to come to the neuro forum, because the blindness suggests a brain problem of some kind, rather than a muscle wasting disease problem.  A neurological problem might affect the limbs and eyesight, so at the very least, the child should be taken to a neurologist to explore the brain origin of his symptoms.  And maybe someone else here will identify with what they sound like to them.

I've reached a website diagnosing this as Muscular Destrophy but what i am saying is this genetic disorder or a common disease?
it's necessery to be know because his family is really in bad situation and they are wasting their money with nothing up.
I hope to find something new here.
