Mental retardation psychosis macroorchidism

Overview

Type of disease: Rare conditions

Mental retardation – psychosis – macroorchidism refers to a form of intellectual disability that is characterized mainly by below-average mental ability, unstable mental state, and abnormally large testes. Individuals with this form of intellectual disability often have problems perceiving reality. Like other individuals with intellectual disability, an individual with this condition often has problems with reasoning and solving problems, as well as performing day-to-day tasks. The condition is also often diagnosed during childhood. Doctors diagnose this form of intellectual disability if an unstable mental state and unusually large testes are observed. Signs like walking and talking late, slow mastering of basic tasks, and having difficulty remembering things may also suggest this condition in children. Treatment depends on the specific needs of the patient. Psychiatrists may suggest patients to undergo psychotherapy sessions or take anti-psychotic medications. Doctors seek help from various therapists and community services to provide support and care for families affected by intellectual disability.
