  • Cri Du Chat Syndrome

    It presents with a distinctive catlike high-pitched cry, psychomotor delays, microcephaly, craniofacial abnormalities, and, in many cases, ocular findings.[] The typical cri du chat syndrome, due to 5p15.2 deletion, includes severe intellectual disability, facial dysmorphisms, neonatal hypotonia and pre- and post-natal growth retardation[] A deletion of this chromosomal region has been associated with the cri-du-chat syndrome (CDCS), a segmental aneusomy syndrome of 5p that is associated with an unusual high-pitched[]

  • Hypernatremia

    Your baby has a high-pitched cry, muscle weakness, or unusual irritability or drowsiness. You have dry eyes or mouth. You have nausea, and you are vomiting.[] pitched cry  Irritability  Loss of consciousness  Fever  Hyperreflexia  Seizures, ataxia, tremor  Neurological deficits  Muscle cramps  Doughy skin Clinical practice[] Symptoms may include muscle weakness, irritability and agitation, high-pitched cry, insomnia, and lethargy. A rise in SNa draws water out of cells.[]

  • Hypoglycemia
