- Developmental delay
- Intellectual disability
- Autism or related behavior issues
What causes 1q21.1 microduplication syndrome?
People who have 1q21.1 microduplication syndrome have an extra piece of chromosome 1. The extra piece can affect learning and how the body develops. Researchers are trying to learn more about what the genes in this extra piece do.
Do all people who have 1q21.1 microduplication syndrome have symptoms?
Not necessarily. Some people do not have any symptoms. Some people may not learn that they have this chromosome change until it is found in their children.
Do all the people in a family that has the chromosome change have the same symptoms?
Not necessarily. Family members who have the same chromosome change can have different symptoms.
Many people have learning issues. But most do not have intellectual disability. 20% have intellectual disability
Some people who have the syndrome have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or autism. 40% have autism 30% have ADHD
Some people have some trouble understanding and forming words. 38% have trouble forming words
