Rett Syndrome

Rett syndrome (Rett syndrome, Rett's disorder) is a progressive neurological disorder. The symptoms of this disorder are easily confused with those of autism and cerebral palsy. The clinical diagnosis includes small head, hands, and feet. Stereotypical repetitive hand movements such as mouthing or wringing are also included. Girls are very prone to seizures, GI disorders, and are typically nonverbal. About 50% of the girls/women are ambulatory.
