Caption: Muscular dystrophy. Light micrograph of a section through muscle tissue affected by Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Some of the muscle fibres (bright pink) have been destroyed and replaced by fibrous tissue (light pink). DMD is a severe genetic disorder typified by muscle wasting and loss of function. It almost exclusively affects males.
