Down syndrome patients who survive into late adulthood codci develop alzheimer syndrome. They may have dementia. Usually, mental development and physical development are slower in people with down syndrome than in those without it. A wide range other defects, such as congenital heart diseases, respiratory disorders, and leukemia, may be associated.

A chromosome disorder associated either with an extra chromosome 21 or an effective trisomy for chromosome However, many people with down syndrome live productive lives well into adulthood. Even though people with down syndrome may have some physical and mental features in common, symptoms of down syndrome can range from mild to severe.
Typical facies with upslanting palpebral fissures is the characteristic feature of this syndrome hence the offensive designations “mongoloid idiocy” and “mongolism”. Abnormalities are variable cdici individual to individual and may include mental retardation, retarded growth, flat iccd9 face with short nose, prominent epicanthic skin folds, small low-set ears with prominent antihelix, fissured and thickened tongue, laxness of joint ligaments, pelvic dysplasia, broad hands and feet, stubby fingers, transverse palmar crease, lenticular opacities and heart disease.
Patients with down syndrome have an estimated 10 to fold increased risk for leukemia; most have symptoms of alzheimer’s disease by age Clinical conditions caused by an abnormal chromosome constitution in which there is extra or missing chromosome material either a whole chromosome or a ixd9 segment. Down syndrome is set of mental and physical symptoms that result from having an extra copy of chromosome A chromosomal abnormality consisting of the presence of a third copy of chromosome 21 in somatic cells.
They may be born with heart disease.

Down syndrome occurs in approximately 1: Clinical manifestations include hypotonia, short stature, brachycephaly, upslanting palpebral fissures, epicanthus, brushfield spots on the iris, protruding tongue, small ears, short, broad hands, fifth finger clinodactyly, simian crease, and moderate to severe intellectual disability. Pathologic features include the development of neurofibrillary tangles in neurons and the deposition of amyloid beta-protein, similar to the pathology of codci disease.
Chromosome disorder associated either with an extra chromosome 21 or an effective trisomy for chromosome 21; clinical manifestations include hypotonia, short stature, brachycephaly, upslanting palpebral fissures, epicanthus, brushfield spots on the iris, protruding tongue, small ears, short, broad hands, fifth finger clinodactyly, simian crease, and moderate to severe mental retardation. A codidi dysgenesis syndrome resulting from a triplication or translocation of chromosome Also known as trisomy 21 syndrome.
Cardiac and gastrointestinal malformations, a marked increase in the incidence of leukemia, and the early onset of alzheimer disease are also associated with this condition. Down syndrome cannot be cured. A disorder that results from a chromosomal abnormality.
They may have hearing problems and problems with the intestines, eyes, thyroid and skeleton.
