Publication History

Published Online:


As patients with genetic syndromes age new problems can arise. This review will consider six of the more common genetic syndromes likely to survive to adulthood and suggest appropriate management strategies. In this review, we will consider multiple malformation syndromes that are relatively common, likely to survive to adulthood and able to live at least partly independently. We will limit our discussion to four chromosomal malformations and two dominantly inherited disorders due to gene mutations.
