What causes rett syndrome?
The life expectancy for girls with Rett Syndrome is about 44 to 48 years old. The syndrome causes physical and mental developmental problems.
Rett syndrome in boys is known as Rett syndrome. Male fetuses with Rett syndrome do not typically survive until birth unless they have an extra X chromosome (XXY).
Yes, his niece Courtney has rett syndrome.
i really dont know. the parents can be normal even if the child has rett syndrome. rett syndrome is caused by a mutation.
If a family has a daughter that is afflicted with Rett Syndrome prenatal testing is available. Testing is also available for sisters of girls with Rett Syndrome. Rett Syndrome is a genetic disorder and nearly all cases are caused by a mutation in the MECP2 gene. Less than 1% of cases are passed from generation to generation.
An interesting fact about Rett syndrome is that it is normally found in females because females have two X chromosomes. If a male were to get Rett Syndrome they wouldn't survive because males have only one X chromosome.
One of every 10,000 to 15,000 infant girls will develop Rett syndrome. It affects all racial and ethnic groups worldwide. Rett syndrome is rarely seen in boys. The chances of a family having a second child with Rett syndrome are less than one percent. Why Does Rett Syndrome Mostly Affect Girls and Not Boys? Girls have two X chromosomes in every cell. If they have Rett syndrome, some of the cells will use the defective… Read More

As of 2014, there are no reported famous people who suffer with Rett syndrome. This condition affects the central nervous system.
Population of USA 313,232,044 Known cases of Rett Syndrome in USA 4,000 Percentage of USA population of known cases of Rett Syndrome 0.0012770085553571269 Resources of population: http://www.indexmundi.com/united_states/demographics_profile.html http://www.rettsyndrome.org/content/view/21/816/
According to the Rett syndrome association (a UK charity), Rett syndrome is caused by a random genetic mutation and is not hereditary. As such it cannot be passed onto your child. Please see the related link. It is highly unlikely but is possible to have Rett syndrome and due to X inactivation not show any symptoms. Therefore, you could pass on the same mutation/deletion to your daughter who may show symptoms even though you do… Read More

According to Chuck CurleyExecutive Director of IRSF (International Rett Syndrome Foundation) in 2007 there were nearly 4000 known cases of Rett Syndrome in the United states. DR Helen Leonard, a disability researcher from Australia's Institute for Child Health Research has collected info on the rett girls and the populations vary from country to country . Her international database, InterRett, though has collected numerous cases of Rett Syndrome. As of September 2008, InterRett had ascertained 1691… Read More
The symptoms, characteristics and outcomes of these two conditions are quite different. Down syndrome is a developmental disorder. Rett syndrome is classified more specifically as a pervasive developmental disorder. A child with Down syndrome can also have a pervasive developmental disorder. At least one girl has been confirmed as having both Down syndrome and Rett syndrome by laboratory testing. Rett syndrome is a neurological and neurodevelopmental disorder that mostly occurs in females and is the… Read More
It is dominant in females and males die before they can pass it on.

Hemophilia and Rett Syndrome.
It is a severe neurological disorder affecting females mainly. A: Rett syndrome is a neurological and neurodevelopmental disorder that mostly occurs in females and is the result of a chromosomal abnormality. It is caused by mutations in the methyl-CpG binding protein 2 (MECP2) gene in many of the cases. Infants with Rett syndrome seem to grow and develop normally at first but then they begin to lose skills and abilities before age three. The child… Read More
50-80% of children with the disorder will eventually have seizures
There are many different chromosomal abnormalities in a RETT patient it includes ring chromosome(especially X chromosome),dicentric,chromosomal and chromatid breaks etc...
No Actually there is testing to determine if your child has rett syndrome, although prior to 1999 they were no tests available. Fortunately there have been great strides in genetic testing and with advanced medical research and the discovery of the Mecp2 gene by Huda Zoghbi and her team of lab research assistants, the situation has changed. Currently there is a prenatal test that can be taken to determine if the fetus tht you carry… Read More
one interesting fact is that it strikes at random, it has nothing to do with the child's family history.
No, Rett Syndrome is not the same as autism. However, both are pervasive developmental disorders (also known as autism spectrum disorders) and have certain characteristics in common. See the related question "What are autism spectrum disorders?" in the links below for descriptions of each of the disorders.
According to the International Rett Syndrome Foundation, it occurs in 1 out of every 10,000 to 23,000 female births. It is very rare, so the rate of occurrence is not known absolutely. Almost all of those alive with Rett Syndrome are female; males who have the genetic mutation do not have a second X chromosome to compensate for the defective gene so they usually die before birth or shortly thereafter. The males that survive almost… Read More

the mutation that causes the disorder is located on the X chromosome. While boys have an X and a Y chromosome, girls have two X chromosomes, only one of which is active in any given body cell.
The risk that the parents of a daughter with RS will have a second child with the disorder is less than 1%.
Yes my daughter has it all of the time. She doesn't do it when she is sleeping. Only when awake. She has Rett Syndrome.
The forms of autism are Perfond autism, Classical auism, Pervasive Development Disorder, Asperger Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, Ragressive Autism, Rett Syndrome and many more.
Deletion Mutation causes DiGeorges Syndrome.
also referred to as Rett's disorder or by the compound name of autism , dementia , ataxia , and loss of purposeful hand use.
* Down Syndrome -- an extra 21st chromosome * Angelman Syndrome -- an absence of chromosome #15 in the brain * Fragile X Syndrome -- a deficiency in one of the x chromosomes * Rett Syndrome -- deletion of an entire x chromosome (mainly strikes females) * Patau Syndrome -- tripling of chromosome #13 (infants appear mutilated)
Rett syndrome. Is a disorder of the nervous system that leads to developmental reversals, especially in the areas of expressive language and hand use.
Andreas Rett died in 1997.
Andreas Rett was born in 1924.
In most cases, the diagnosis cannot be made with certainty until the child is three to five years old
Mental deficiencies or self esteem issues can be causes of the Peter Pan Syndrome. This syndrome exists when grown men act as children.
RS is classified by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV), as a developmental disorder of childhood.
