In brief: Depends on
The presence of serious congenital heart or kidney defects, narrowing of the ateries to the kidneys causing high blood pressure, vertebral abnormalities causing severe scoliosis that can compromise lung function.
These are seen in the most severe cases. Early detection & medical or surgical treatment of these associated problems greatly reduce morbidity ( illness) & mortality.
