Costello syndrome belongs to a group of related conditions called the RASopathies. These conditions have some overlapping features and are all caused by genetic changes that disrupt the body's RAS pathway, affecting growth and development. The features of Costello syndrome overlap significantly with two of the RASopathies, cardiofaciocutaneous (CFC) syndrome and Noonan syndrome.
