Neurogenetic disorders are conditions caused by changes in genes and chromosomes. These changes can affect the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles and can cause health problems at birth or later in childhood. There are different types of neurogenetic conditions but only some are inherited. Symptoms vary and can get worse or improve with time. Some neurogenetic disorders include:

  • Autism
  • Brain malformation
  • Developmental delay
  • Neurofibramotosis
  • Epilepsy
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Neuromuscular disorders
  • Pediatric stroke
  • Neurodegenerative disorders

Treatments depend on the specific condition and most often include procedures or medicines to reduce and control symptoms.
