Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study utilised developmental profiling to examine symptom presentation in 14 girls with genetically confirmed Rett Syndrome and whose family was participating in the Australian Rett Syndrome or InterRett database. Regression was mostly characterised by loss of hand and/or communication skills (13/14) except one girl demonstrated slowing of skill development. Social withdrawal and inconsolable crying often developed simultaneously (9/14) with social withdrawal of shorter duration than inconsolable crying. Previously acquired gross motor skills declined in just over half of the sample (8/14), mostly observed as a loss of balance. Early abnormalities such as vomiting and strabismus were also seen. Our findings provide additional insight into the early clinical profile of Rett syndrome.
