Transcript of coffin-lowry syndrome or C.L.S


what is coffin-lowry syndrome
Coffin-lowry syndrome is a rare genetic disorder. CLS is mostly found in males. It makes males skinnier than most and purduces more personal communication.
Females can also have C L S, but its not as noticable because females have 2 X chromosomes and males only have 1.
Children with C L S are often happy and easygoing.
The father of an affected male will not have the disease or be a carrier of it.
In a family with more than one affected sibling, the mother is the carrier of the disease. 70%-80% of families have no history of CLS, yet 20%-30% of that number have more than 1 affected family member.

Female Carriers
Female carriers have a higher rate of passing on CLS then found in the general population, 6 out of 68 women have passed it on. That also goes for other diseases such as: Schizophrenia and Bipolar disease.

Affected Children usually have:
-Spine closer to the front of the body sometimes creates a hunched position.
-Narrow waist/pelvis.
-Thicker skull.
-Different ears (either bigger or smaller)
-Short, soft, fleshy hands, especially at the palm
-life span is reduced to 18 to 34 years.
-and muscles can also be tighter in the legs.

Why i chose Coffin-Lowry Syndrome is because of my brother (Caleb). CLS is rare genetic disorder that affects many people including my brother. I wanted to share the knowledge that I have learned over the years about how my brother is special.
