  • Diagnosis and treatment The condition is diagnosed by the presence of the typical physical characteristics, and the unusually slow growth. Confirmation is by molecular genetic testing.[news-medical.net]
  • Treatment usually involves physical therapy and minor surgeries to the affected organs, like cataract removal.[checkorphan.org]
  • TREATMENT Treatment is supportive and symptomatic. Individuals with the disorder often require tube feeding. Because COFS is genetic, genetic counseling is available. PROGRESSION COFS is a fatal disease. Death usually occurs by 5 years of age.[secure.ssa.gov]

  • Prognosis The prognosis varies with the severity of the genetic disorder, the success in avoiding UV light and vigilance of screening.[patient.info]
  • The prognosis for those with Cockayne syndrome is poor, as death typically occurs by the age of 12.[en.wikipedia.org]
