  • I am a genetic counselor.  We recently made a diagnosis of Sjogren-Larsson in a young child, and I am on the search for patient information for her family.  I have found very little information so far (besides medical journal articles).  Would you be able to point me to any other source of information (besides FIRST) where I can find information to pass along to this family?  The family will be coming back early next week to discuss the diagnosis.
