NYT73 - (NYT73) UNDATED -- June 23, 2004 -- MUSCLES-GENE -- The powerful legs of a baby boy, in an undated photo, who at the moment the little boy was born, a hospital staff knew there was something unusual about him. His muscles looked nothing like the soft baby muscles of the other infants in the nursery. They were bulging and well defined, especially in his thighs and upper arms. "Everybody noticed," said Dr. Markus Schuelke, a pediatric neurologist at Charit University Medical Center in Berlin. The baby,it turned out in the first such documented case in a human, had a double dose of a genetic mutation that causes immense strength in mice and cattle.
