What is NR4A2-related syndrome?
NR4A2-related syndrome happens when there are changes to the NR4A2 gene. These changes can keep the gene from working as it should.
NR4A2 plays a key role in the development of the brain. This gene is particularly important in brain cells that help control movement, emotion, and memory.
NR4A2-related syndrome can have moderate to severe effects on the development of communication skills, social skills, and learning skills. Because the NR4A2 gene is important in the development of the brain, many people who have NR4A2-related syndrome have:
- Language impairment
- Intellectual disability
Do people who have NR4A2-related syndrome look different?
People who have NR4A2-related syndrome generally do not look different.
