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

Respite is Not a Four-Letter Word!

The most effective caregivers are those who recognize the need to recharge their own batteries.
