Craniosynostosis Autosomal Dominant

Overview

Type of disease: Rare conditions

Craniosynostosis – Autosomal Dominant is a rare disorder passed on genetically characterized by early fusion of the skull bones. Early fusion of the skull bones can lead to problems with brain development. Hence, individuals may have problems with reasoning and solving problems, as well as performing day-to-day tasks. The disorder is often diagnosed early in childhood, since the symptoms are very apparent. Signs like walking and talking late, slow mastering of basic tasks, and having difficulty remembering things may also suggest this disorder in children. Treatment is developed on a case-by-case basis and depends on the specific needs of the patient. Doctors seek help from various therapists and community services to provide support and care for families affected by intellectual disability.
