In brief: Complex genetic prob
Rett syndrome is a disorder of the nervous system that leads to developmental reversals, especially in the areas of expressive language and hand use.
Rett syndrome occurs almost exclusively in girls and may be misdiagnosed as autism or cerebral palsy.Studies have linked many rett syndrome cases to a defect in the mecp2 gene. This gene is on the x chromosome. Females have two xs. Males do not live.
