TRIM 32-related Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD R8/2H) is a rare genetic muscle disease reported in fewer than 100 patients worldwide. Here, we report a male patient with progressive proximo-distal lower limb weakness with onset in the third decade who had mixed myopathic and neurogenic pattern in electrophysiology and muscle biopsy. Clinical exome sequencing revealed a homozygous pathogenic single base pair insertion in exon 2 of the TRIM32 gene confirming the diagnosis of LGMD R8. This is a novel frameshift mutation and one of the very few cases of LGMD R8 reported from India.
