  • Deafness-dwarfism-retinal atrophy

    Deafness-dwarfism-retinal atrophy or Cockayne syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by an abnormally small head size (microcephaly), a failure to gain weight and grow at the expected rate (failure to thrive) leading to very short stature, and delayed development. 1. The signs and symptoms of this condition are usually apparent from infancy, and they worsen over time. 2. Most affected individuals have an  Read More

  • Escobar syndrome

    Multiple pterygium syndrome is a very rare genetic disorder characterized by minor facial anomalies, short stature, vertebral defects, multiple joints in a fixed position (contractures) and webbing (pterygia) of the neck, inside bend of the elbows, back of the knees, armpits and fingers. Multiple pterygium syndrome usually follows autosomal recessive inheritance but can also follow autosomal dominant inheritance.  Read More

  • Faciodigitogenital syndrome

    Since there is currently no permanent treatment for Facio Digito Genital syndrome, care is offered to enhance quality of life. A specialized team of healthcare professionals is needed to give a synchronized treatment for the patient's distinctive anomalies and associated symptoms: 1. Therapy of strabismus is used for disorders where the eyes are positioned erratically, impairing vision. In order to restore normal v  Read More

  • Frontofacionasal dysostosis

    There's a partial cure available for frontofacionasal dysostosis. The treatment totally depends on the type of abnormality you're suffering from: 1. Bone malfunctions: Workout, vitamin and nutrient supplements, and drugs are used to treat established osteoporosis. Exercise and supplementation are frequently recommended to help prevent bone malfunctions. Other than that, at times surgeries are also recommended if t  Read More

  • Hutchinson-gilford progeria syndrome (hgps)

    Progeria, or Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS), is a rare, fatal, genetic condition of childhood with striking features resembling premature aging. Children with progeria usually have a normal appearance in early infancy. At approximately nine to 24 months of age, affected children begin to experience profound growth delays, resulting in short stature and low weight. They also develop a distinctive facial appearance characterized by  Read More

  • Male turner syndrome

    Noonan syndrome is a common genetic disorder that is typically evident at birth (congenital). The disorder is characterized by a wide spectrum of symptoms and physical features that vary greatly in range and severity. In many affected individuals, associated abnormalities include a distinctive facial appearance; a broad or webbed neck; a low posterior hairline; a typical chest deformity and short stature. Characteristic abnormalities of the he  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 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

  • Russell-silver dwarfism

    Russel-silver dwarfism, also known as Russel-silver syndrome, is a developmental disease. As the name suggests, a person born with the disease grows dwarf, with an average height in adulthood being 3 feet. The baby is born with macrocephaly and an underdeveloped body by size. Other clinical features include unusually prominent forehead (frontal bossing), progressive limb length discrepancy, growth failure, and feeding difficul  Read More
