Muscular dystrophies have always been marginalized culturally and socially, particularly in underdeveloped and developing countries. Pakistan is facing significant dearth of “appropriately” trained neurologists and neuromuscular pathologists. A careful and methodical link between clinical, pathological and molecular analysis must be established before making a diagnosis in such cases. Increased collaboration between local and international neurology societies may add value to collaborative neuromuscular research and education in Pakistan, both in community and health sectors. These goals are all achievable but require persistence, dedicated workforce, and positive efforts to meet them.
