Rett Syndrome and Women’s Health

As adult women with Rett syndrome age, their overall health and cognitive abilities improve, but they continue to lose coordinated movements, according to a study published on 20 November in Clinical Genetics. This is the first long-term study to document the effects of Rett syndrome in adulthood. Rett syndrome, a developmental disorder that primarily affects young girls, is characterized by low social interaction, limited ability to communicate, and severe motor deficits such as floppy arms and legs and repetitive hand movements. Symptoms of the disorder typically appear between 6 and 18 months of age. Because it appears in childhood, most studies of the syndrome have focused on cases in children.
