Rett Syndrome in Boys: A Rarity
Keywords:Rett Syndrome, Stereotypic Hand Movements, Developmental Regression
Rett syndrome (RTT) is a disorder of neurodevelopment in which there is a regression of previously acquired skills after a period of normal development. Originally, RTT was thought to be present exclusively in females. However, advances in phenotypic identification and genetic testing revealed cases of males. A case series of RTT which comprises two cases in boys and one case in a girl is reported here. There is a need to recognize this uncommon disorder and differentiate it from other neurodegenerative disorders.
