As a result, babies have severe intellectual disability, developmental delay, multiple seizures and hypotonia. Characteristic facial features and mental retardation is indicative of a karyotypic evaluation. Microdeletion of chromosome 17p13.3 confirms the diagnosis. Management includes genetic counselling, frequent medical check-up, palliative treatment with physiotherapy and seizure control.
