Meet Carter, born 11/07 so he is 16 months as I write this, diagnosed with Mowat Wilson Syndrome.



This is from Wikipedia, please ask any questions you may have. I may edit this post later to add info, but at the moment I am tired.

Mowat Wilson syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that was clinically delineated by Dr. D. R. Mowat and Dr. M. J. Wilson in 1998.[1] This autosomal dominant disorder is characterized by a number of health defects including Hirschsprung's disease, mental retardation, seizure disorder, delayed growth and motor development, congenital heart disease, genitourinary anomalies and absence of the corpus callosum. Distinctive physical features include microcephaly, narrow chin, cupped ears with protruding lobes, deep and widely set eyes, open mouth, wide nasal bridge and a shortened philtrum.
