What is Rett Syndrome?

Rett syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that primarily affects girls. It is characterized by normal early development followed by a loss of acquired skills, such as the ability to speak and use hand movements purposefully. Rett syndrome is a lifelong condition that requires specialized care and support. The exact cause of Rett syndrome is not fully understood yet. However, it is known that this gene provides instructions for making a protein that is essential for the normal function of nerve cells. Rett syndrome is not usually inherited from parents and is observed to occur sporadically.
