What is Coffin Lowry Syndrome? (Definition)
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Coffin-Lowry syndrome is a condition which can affect many different parts of the body. The signs and symptoms are usually more severe in males than in females, although the features of this disorder range from very mild to severe in affected women.
Males with Coffin-Lowry syndrome typically have severe to profound intellectual disability and delayed development. Women may be cognitively normal, or they may have intellectual disability ranging from mild to profound. Beginning in childhood or adolescence, some people with this Coffin Lowry Syndrome experience brief episodes of collapse when excited or startled by a loud noise. These attacks are called stimulus-induced drop episodes (SIDEs).
