Case Report - Recent experience with Rett syndrome at a tertiary care center|
Kumar Sudhir, Alexander M, Gnanamuthu C
Rett syndrome (RS), a neurological developmental disorder, is one of the commonest causes of cognitive impairment in girls and women. These patients are often initially misdiagnosed as idiopathic mental retardation, cerebral palsy, or autism. Despite several reports from the West, there are very few reports from the Indian population. We present four female children with RS and emphasize the importance of early diagnosis.
