This table lists symptoms that people with this disease may have. For most diseases, symptoms will vary from person to person. People with the same disease may not have all the symptoms listed. This information comes from a database called the Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) . The HPO collects information on symptoms that have been described in medical resources. The HPO is updated regularly. Use the HPO ID to access more in-depth information about a symptom.

Research helps us better understand diseases and can lead to advances in diagnosis and treatment. This section provides resources to help you learn about medical research and ways to get involved.
Support and advocacy groups can help you connect with other patients and families, and they can provide valuable services. Many develop patient-centered information and are the driving force behind research for better treatments and possible cures. They can direct you to research, resources, and services. Many organizations also have experts who serve as medical advisors or provide lists of doctors/clinics. Visit the group’s website or contact them to learn about the services they offer. Inclusion on this list is not an endorsement by GARD.

I have been pregnant three times. My first pregnancy ended in miscarriage at 10 weeks. My second pregnancy resulted in my daughter. She has some developmental delays specifically in speech and language. My third pregnancy ended at 15 weeks with an anencephalic baby. That pregnancy was terminated. My question is, could the miscarriage, my daughter's delays, and the anencephalic baby all be related to each other? Or are each of these instances random and just "bad luck?" Should I seek genetic testing before trying for another baby? See answer
If anencephaly occurred in a previous pregnancy, what are the chances of this condition affecting the next pregnancy if we take the recommended medication? How long should the medication be taken before attempting another pregnancy? See answer
My mother had a baby with anencephaly. Does this increase the chances for me to have a baby with this condition? See answer
