hemihypertrophy and BWS

Alina_n profile image

My son has 3 years old age and he has BWS. We didn't know about this syndrom until now.

We received the results from genetic test a month ago. He has hemihypertrophy ( the entire right side is a little bigger in circumference than the left side. Is more visible to the right cheek - more prominent. He is not speaking for his age too much--just 15-20 words. I do not know if this is related to the syndrome or not. We are making from now one abdominal screening at 3 months and blood test at 3 months.

We are living in Romania, Timisoara, in this city there are only 3 case with this syndrome, and the doctor does;t have much experience in this way.
