What is SRCAP-related Syndrome?
SRCAP-related syndrome happens when there are changes to the SRCAP gene. These changes can keep the gene from working as it should. SRCAP-related syndrome is also known as Floating-Harbor syndrome.
The SRCAP gene plays a key role in cell growth.
Because the SRCAP gene is important in the development of brain cells, many people who have SRCAP-related syndrome have:
- Language problems
- Intellectual disability
- Delay in bone growth that ends between ages 6 and 12
- Short height
- Skeletal changes
- Changes in facial features
Do people who have SRCAP-related syndrome look different?
People who have SRCAP-related syndrome may look different. Appearance can vary and can include some but not all of these features:
- Triangular face
- Deep set eyes
- Wide mouth
- Low set ears
- Long nose
Some people have behavior problems including temper tantrums; attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, also called ADHD; obsessive compulsive disorder, also called OCD; autism; and anxiety.
People who have SRCAP-related syndrome are often short.
Most people who have SRCAP-related syndrome have some degree of intellectual impairment.
