Chromosome 12, Ring
Type of disease: Rare conditions
Chromosome 12 ring 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 such as short stature, microcephaly, or a highly arched palate, as well as mental deficiencies and an abnormally crooked pinkie-finger (clinodactyly). Although there is currently no cure for chromosome 12 ring 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 chromosome 12 ring syndrome.
