About CdLS

CdLS is a genetic syndrome that occurs in about 1 in 10,000 births. Common medical problems include gastroesophageal reflux, bowel obstruction, hearing loss, and congenital heart defects. Although individuals with CdLS range from mildly to severely affected, most have similar physical characteristics: small size, hands and feet; thin eyebrows that meet in the middle; long eyelashes; upturned nose; and thin, downturned lips. Some individuals have limb differences, including missing fingers or arms, and partial joining of the toes.
