What is Cohen Syndrome? (Definition)
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Cohen syndrome is an inherited condition or disorder which can be identified by developmental delay, intellectual disability, small head size (microcephaly), and weak muscle tone (hypotonia). Other features of this condition can include progressive nearsightedness (myopia), degeneration of the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye (retinal dystrophy), an unusually large range of joint movement (hypermobility), and distinctive facial features. Characteristic facial features of Cohen syndrome include thick hair and eyebrows, long eyelashes, unusually-shaped eyes (down-slanting and wave-shaped), a bulbous nasal tip, a smooth or shortened area between the nose and the upper lip (philtrum), and prominent upper central teeth. The combination of the last two facial features results in an open-mouth appearance.
