Treatment

  • Treatment and management No treatment has been developed. Further research to better understand the cause and genetic basis of this disorder is necessary.[encyclopedia.com]

  • You may also want to contact a university or tertiary medical center in your area, because these centers tend to see more complex cases and have the latest technology and treatments.[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis Prognosis is poor; the syndrome is almost always lethal soon after birth. The documents contained in this web site are presented for information purposes only.[orpha.net]

Etiology

  • Etiology It is most likely that the condition is hereditary, transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait. Antenatal diagnosis Antenatal diagnosis is possible by ultrasonographic monitoring for cerebral and vertebral malformations.[orpha.net]
  • There is strong evidence that this syndrome has autosomal recessive etiology, and our case does not contradict that hypothesis. You may contact the first author (during and after the meeting) at[ashg.org]
