  • Batten turner syndrome

    Batten Turner Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that is characterized by progressive vision loss and neurological problems. The exact cause of the condition is unknown, but it is believed to be caused by a mutation in a gene called CLN3. Batten Turner Syndrome typically begins in childhood, and affects both males and females equally. There is currently no known cure for the condition, but treatments are available to help man  Read More

  • Faciodigitogenital syndrome

    Aarskog syndrome is an extremely rare genetic disorder marked by stunted growth that may not become obvious until the child is about three years of age, broad facial abnormalities, musculoskeletal and genital anomalies, and mild intellectual disability.  Read More

  • Holoprosencephaly

    Holoprosencephaly is a neuroanatomical malformation of the forebrain or frontal lobe. Impaired signaling between the neural crest and neural ectoderm is the cause of the disorder. it occurs during the period of gastrulation, two or three weeks after conception. Incomplete midline cleavage of the forebrain and craniofacial midline defects are the primary clinical features. Many genetic defects have been attributed to the disease. Nongenetic causes  Read More

  • Mannosidosis

    Alpha-mannosidosis is a rare genetic disorder characterized by a deficiency of the enzyme alpha-D-mannosidase. Alpha-mannosidosis is best thought of as a continuum of disease that is generally broken down into three forms: a mild, slowly progressive form (type 1); a moderate form (type 2); and a severe, often rapidly progressive and potentially life-threatening form (type 3). The symptoms and severity of the disorder are highly variable. Sympt  Read More

  • Marinesco-sjogren syndrome-myopathy

    The unusual hereditary disorder known as Marinesco-Sjogren syndrome-myopathy affects a number of the body's organ systems. Among the more common signs of cerebellar ataxia include cataracts, delays in learning skills requiring the coordination of muscular and mental activity (psychomotor development), hypotonia, decreased muscle tone, and progressive muscle weakness. Many affected individuals exhibit additional physical proble  Read More

  • Microcephaly

    Microcephaly is an uncommon neurological ailment in which an infant's head is significantly smaller than other kids of the same age and gender. Microcephaly, which is sometimes discovered at birth, arises when there is an issue with brain growth in pregnancy or when the brain stops expanding after birth.A range of genes and environmental influences can contribute to microcephaly. Children with microcephaly frequently hav  Read More

  • Neonatal progeroid syndrome

    Neonatal Progeroid syndrome, otherwise termed as Wiedemann-Rautenstrauch, is a rare genetic condition denoted by an aged appearance at the time of birth. Symptoms involve the growth restriction specific to the uterus, feeding ordeals, varying craniofacial features, hypotonia (low muscle tone), developmental impediments and mild to extreme intellectual disabilities. Risk factors of Neonatal Progeroid Syndrome  Read More

  • Niikawakuroki syndrome

    Kabuki syndrome is a rare, multisystem disorder characterized by multiple abnormalities including distinctive facial features, growth delays, varying degrees of intellectual disability, skeletal abnormalities, and short stature. A wide variety of additional symptoms affecting multiple different organ systems can potentially occur. The specific symptoms associated with Kabuki syndrome can vary greatly from one person to another. The exact cause  Read More

  • Rubinstein taybi syndrome

    Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome is a genetic disorder characterized by shortened stature, mild to severe intellectual disabilities, peculiar facial features, broader thumbs and first toes, abnormalities of the eyes, kidney and heart complications, dental issues, and obesity. The life expectancy of affected children does not exceed 5 years of age. Mutations of certain genes in the DNA are the primary cause, making it a ge  Read More
