Name Syndromic autosomal recessive mental retardation
Description Mental retardation (MR) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by low intelligence quotient (IQ) and deficits in adaptive behaviors. To date, several genes have been identified for autosomal recessive mental retardation (ARMR). These genes have a variety of functions and participate in multiple biochemical pathways. ARMR is subdivided into syndromic and non-syndromic forms, depending on whether further abnormalities are found or not. Syndromic ARMR is characterized by recognizable dysmorphic features, neurological complications, and/or metabolic abnormalities.
