Health Issues

Summary

The health issues of Kabuki Syndrome are variable. Many different health issues have been observed among children with Kabuki syndrome, however an individual child may have only a sub-set of those issues. Those born with heart malformations, cleft lip/palate, or other obvious physical anomalies, will be more likely to receive an early diagnosis. For others, this process may take longer.

Hint for Parents

I Have a Partner?!

Don’t forget to spend alone-time together. Having a happy marriage is always important, but even more so when dealing with the added stress of raising a child with special needs.
