Down Sindrome

Were you looking for information about Down Syndrome? Down sindrome is a common misspelling of Down syndrome.
 
Down syndrome, a disorder that occurs as a result of extra genetic material, is the most frequent genetic cause of mental retardation and associated medical problems. It is caused by the presence of an extra 21st chromosome (trisomy 21) and is usually the result of a random event that occurs during the formation of reproductive cells. There is no cure for this disorder, so treatment focuses on controlling symptoms and medical conditions that result from it.
