Transcript of Allan-Herndon-Dudley Syndrome
Hypotonia (low muscle tone)
Unable to hold up head at 6 months
Impaired ability to control voluntary movements
Lack of control of voluntary leg movements
Weak infant neck muscles
Inability to walk
Inability to talk
Symptoms: AHDS was among the first X-linked disorders to be discovered in 1944.
There has been research for cures and treatments for Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome, but there has been no found cures, and there has also been research on the mutations in different Allan-Herndon-Dudley carrying families. Research: Pedigree Charts of 6 AHDS carrying families: There has been 25 families with 89 individuals that have been recorded with AHDS.
The life expectancy of an individual with AHDS is usually relatively long, but they are usually unable to walk and are wheelchair-bound. There should be more research for AHDS because there is barely any as of now. There is no treatment and definitely no cure. The symptoms of AHDS are very painful and cause for the individual to never not have help and they will never have a completely normal life.
