  • 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

  • Batten-spielmeyer-vogt's disease

    Batten disease, a rare genetic disorder, belongs to a group of progressive degenerative neurometabolic disorders known as the neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses. These disorders share certain similar symptoms and are distinguished in part by the age at which such symptoms appear. Batten disease is sometimes considered the juvenile form of the neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCLs). The NCLs are characterized by abnormal accumulation of certain fatt  Read More

  • Craniofacial syndrome

    Chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome is associated with a range of problems including: congenital heart disease, palate abnormalities, immune system dysfunction including autoimmune disease, low calcium (hypocalcemia) and other endocrine abnormalities such as thyroid problems and growth hormone deficiency, gastrointestinal problems, feeding difficulties, kidney abnormalities, hearing loss, seizures, skeletal abnormalities, minor facial differe  Read More

  • Dup(5p) syndrome

    Trisomy 5p is a rare chromosomal disorder in which all or a portion of the short arm (p) of chromosome 5 (5p) appears three times (trisomy) rather than twice in cells of the body. Often the duplicated portion of 5p (trisomy) is due to a complex rearrangement involving other chromosomes. These individuals have a variable phenotype depending on which chromosome is involved, the size of the duplication and whether there is loss of material from t  Read More

  • Encephalitis periaxialis diffusa

    Schilder's disease is a rare progressive demyelinating disorder which usually begins in childhood. Schilder's disease is not the same as Addison-Schilder disease (adrenoleukodystrophy). Symptoms may include dementia, aphasia, seizures, personality changes, poor attention, tremors, balance instability, incontinence, muscle weakness, headache, vomiting, and vision and speech impairment. The disorder is a variant of multiple sclerosis. Encephalitis  Read More

  • Febrile seizures

    Febrile seizures are convulsions brought on by a fever in infants or small children. How common are febrile seizures? Approximately one in every 25 children will have at least one febrile seizure, and more than one-third of these children will have additional febrile seizures before they outgrow the tendency to have them. Febrile seizures usually occur in children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years and are particularly co  Read More

  • Greenfield disease

    Metachromatic leukodystrophy, the most common form of leukodystrophy, is a rare inherited neurometabolic disorder affecting the white matter of the brain (leukoencephalopathy). It is characterized by the accumulation of a fatty substance known as sulfatide (a sphingolipid) in the brain and other areas of the body (i.e., liver, gall bladder, kidneys, and/or spleen). The fatty protective covering on the nerve fibers (myelin) is lost from areas o  Read More

  • Group b strep infection

    Group B strep facts Group B strep are bacteria found normally in the intestine, vagina, and rectal area in about 25% of all healthy women. Group B strep infections can affect neonates and adults. Most pregnant women who are colonized by the bacteria have no symptoms. The infection can be spread to infants before or during delivery. Signs and symptoms in babies may include fever, breathing  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

  • Infantile acquired aphasia

    Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS) is a childhood disorder characterized by the loss of comprehension and expression of verbal language (aphasia) in association with severely abnormal electroencephalic (EEG) findings that often result in seizures.  Read More

  • Infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis

    Santavuori disease, a rare genetic disorder, belongs to a group of progressive degenerative neurometabolic diseases known as the neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL). These disorders share certain similar symptoms and are distinguished in part by the age at which such symptoms appear. Santavuori disease is considered the infantile form of the neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses. The NCLs are characterized by abnormal accumulation of certain fatty,  Read More

  • Microcephaly

    Microcephaly is a condition where the head (circumference) is smaller than normal. Microcephaly may be caused by genetic abnormalities or by drugs, alcohol, certain viruses, and toxins that are exposed to the fetus during pregnancy and damage the developing brain tissue. Signs and symptoms of microcephaly may include a smaller than normal head circumference that usually remains smaller than normal as the child grows, d  Read More

  • Ring 21 chromosome

    Short stature, delayed puberty in men, small heads, seizures, learning problems, underdeveloped sex organs, susceptibility to infections, and/or short hair are some signs and symptoms of Ring chromosome 21 that may be present.Some persons exhibit traits and symptoms resembling those of others with Down syndrome. Ring chromosome 21 can be randomly acquired (by chance) during the development of egg or sperm cells or  Read More
