Cornelia de Lange syndrome clinic

Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS) is a genetic disorder present from birth, but not always diagnosed at birth. It causes a range of physical, cognitive and medical challenges, and affects both genders equally. CdLS is seen in all races and ethnic backgrounds. Common symptoms include failure to thrive, developmental delay, limb abnormalities and autism. The occurrence of CdLS is estimated to be one in 10,000 live births.

The Cornelia de Lange syndrome clinic at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City is an annual clinic held in March. Patients have access to a collaborative team of specialists with expertise in orthopaedics, developmental pediatrics, neurology, gastroenterology, ear nose and throat, genetics, social work, physical and occupational therapy, dental care and nutrition. Additionally, parent representatives from the CdLS Foundation are available to meet with families before and after the clinic.
