Support Resources




GeneReviews are a great resource to bring to your child’s clinicians. These publications provide a summary of current research on genetic conditions and information on ongoing care.

Cardiofaciocutaneous (CFC) syndrome (GeneReviews linked here), is caused by one of four known genes, including a gene change in MAP2K1.

Check out the GeneReview for Cardiofaciocutaneous Syndrome.


Research Article Summaries

We currently do not have any article summaries for MAP2K1, but we add resources to our website as they become available.

The information available about MAP2K1 is limited, and families and doctors share a critical need for more information. As we learn more from children who have this gene change, we expect our list of resources and information to grow.
