Rett Syndrome -- Clinical & Biological AspectsBook - 1993
This volume provides a detailed survey of the clinical development of Rett syndrome from its earliest manifestations in childhood to adulthood. The volume surveys the developmental profile of the disease, its characteristic cluster of symptoms and signs, and categorizes the four main clinical stages in the development of motor disability. Particular emphasis is given to Rett syndrome variants and other clinical conditions which manifest themselves in a similar way to Rett syndrome. The development of scoliosis with age and disease stage is analysed. The neurophysiologic, neuropathologic and neurochemical characteristics are also examined. In addition, the volume looks at the molecular genetics of the syndrome, drug treatment and possible future developments.
