Mental retardation short stature deafness genital
Type of disease: Rare conditions
Mental retardation - short stature - deafness - genital refers to a form of intellectual disability that is characterized mainly by below-average mental ability, short body frame, an inability to hear, and abnormalities of the male reproductive organs. 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 often diagnosed during childhood. Doctors diagnose this form of intellectual disability if hearing problems and genital abnormalities 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 developed on a case-by-case basis and depends on the specific needs of the patient. Ear specialists may suggest patients to use a hearing aid to improve hearing. Doctors seek help from various therapists and community services to provide support and care for families affected by intellectual disability.
