Baraitser Brett Piesowicz Syndrome

Overview

Type of disease: Rare conditions

Baraitser Brett Piesowicz syndrome, also known as congenital intrauterine infection-like syndrome, is a rare disorder. Babies affected by Baraitser Brett Piesowicz syndrome are born with a neurological (brain) disorder, a small than average shaped head, and areas with a high amount of calcium in their skull. The small skull size leads to brain disorders because there is not enough space for the brain to develop properly. This also leads to seizures and other problems, at least through their first year of life. Talk with your doctor to find the best treatment if your baby has been diagnosed with Baraitser Brett Piesowicz syndrome.
