FG syndrome

FG syndrome is a rare genetic disorder characterized by Facial abnormalities, Growth retardation, and Mental retardation. It is caused by a mutation in the FGFR1 gene and affects about 1 in every 400,000 births.

Symptoms typically include a small head size, a wide forehead, deep-set eyes, a small nose, and a thin upper lip. Growth retardation begins in the womb and leads to very slow overall growth and a short stature.
