Abstract in Portuguese
Em 32 pacientes com Distrofia Muscular de Duchenne, em corticoterapia, avaliou-se a evolução da força muscular, ao longo de 14 meses, mensalmente no primeiro semestre e a cada dois meses no segundo e terceiro semestre. Testes empregados: escala "Medical Research Council", Hammersmith "motor ability score", levantamento de peso cronometragem do tempo para manobra de Gowers e para percorrer 9 metros. O estudo revelou tendência de estabilidade da força muscular durante o acompanhamento e que para avaliar objetivamente a força muscular são suficientes intervalos de três meses no primeiro semestre de corticoterapia e, posteriormente, de seis meses enquanto durar o tratamento

Abstract in English
In 32 patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and receiving steroid therapy we assessed muscle strength along a follow-up of 14 months using Medical Research Council scale, Hammersmith functional motor scale, timed testing for rising from the floor and walking 9 meters, as well as rising weights. The tests were repeated monthly along the first 6 months and every two months by the rest of the follow-up. The study revealed a trend to functional stability and that the muscle strength can be evaluated at 3 and 6 months of treatment and then every 6 months while the steroid therapy is maintained
