Chromosome 11q Partial Deletion
Type of disease: Rare conditions
Chromosome 11q partial deletion, also known as Jacobsen syndrome, is a rare genetic condition. This condition results from a mutation or error in a person’s DNA or genes. This can cause birth defects affecting the head, face, eyes, and hands, as well as abnormally slow growth and moderate to severe delays in skill learning. Although there is currently no cure for Jacobsen syndrome, there are various resources to help manage the condition and treat birth defects. Doctors seek help from various therapists and community services to provide support and care for families affected by Jacobsen syndrome.
