This paper reviews the extant literature on the psychological aspects of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and discusses the clinical implications of its impact on children and their families. DIVID is the commonest form of muscular dystrophy and the most severe, following a progressive and fatal course of muscular weakness and deterioration. Research on psychological aspects of DMD is rather old and restricted to a small number of studies of varying methodological quality. However, the clinical presentation of DMD, the developmental stage of the child, social/environmental restrictions and family interactions have all been implicated in psychological difficulties within this group. Seminal work and directly relevant research from other areas is discussed and suggestions are made to guide both research and service provision.
