Shprintzen-Goldberg syndrome is a disorder associated with premature closure of sutures of the skull and marfanoid habitus.
We have a group on facebook. Suddently we are not alone: ) Shprintzen goldberg syndrom Greetings Lisbeth
I am on FB too https://www.facebook.com/ginger.macgowan?fref=ts If you want to friend me The othe people on the page are in Denmark mostly and one in France and just added one in Germany yesterday. It is very hard to find any one who understand this syndrome and will look at the child as a "whole". My daughter has had 2 cranio surgeries also, How is your son doing?
I did go on fb and ask to join. I have been in tears since I read the e-mail this morning! My son Adin is 5 in July, overcoming is what we do best over here! We struggle to find Drs. Who are willing to understand the uniqueness of this syndrome. Finding out that you have been in touch with Dr. Shprintzen is amazing! I'm amazed to find another person in the states as well... The overwhelming sense of "being the only one" was a tough pill to swallow. Can't wait to chat more!
I hope you join our FB group if not, I would love to talk to you hear. Finding people is difficult and navigating some of the sites can be difficult. I adopted my now almost 7 year old daughter who have Dx with SGS, and we have many issues and have overcome some issues, it is great to have someone else to talk to so you don't feel so alone getting thru some of the difficulties. Can't wait to hear more about your child!!!
I found you on FB!! I sent him (DR) an email and he responded their is a post on FB too from another mom who found him. He is very willing to communicate, I signed release forms and then I haven't heard back. I have several appts coming up, so I was going to wait until results to contact him again. My daughter has long fngers and toes and toes are now becoming hammered and locked, flat feet, deforming ankles, knees popp out of joint, she has 3 different curves of scholiosis (new xray) eye site is bad, Myopia, and Optic nerve hyperplasia, and Strabismus, she also has extrusion of the chest cavity, Craniosynostosis, was born with Gastroschisis, she is delayed in many areas. Like I said she is adopted, so she was also drug and alcohol exposed before birth, which may have different effects on her delays. Wow, that is all a mouth full. Haha. I sent you a FB request also, as that is much easier for my to log on to. But either way works for me. I just love having extra info and someone who understands the struggles we go thru. Your daughter is very cute by the way!

We would love to have you join us on Facebook if you use it. at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1391983947709314/ Where are you located?

Hi, a little about myself. I'm 26 years old. I have had many medical problems in my past, and some still on going. I was diagnosed as a new born with Marfans but did not fit all the criteria. It wasnt until April 2008 that a geneticist informed me that I had SGS. As I do research I find that I fit just about every category of medical problem listed. What about yourself? Do you have any further research on SGS?
Hi there. Sorry for my bad english. I am from Germany and my daugther Rosalie was born in November 2011. The first time no one knows what she had. They just listed some syndromes they knew. Then in September 2013, after a surgery in Berlin there came a doctor and she looked at Rosie an told us what she could have. And after taking some blood and an analysis we are sure that it is the SGS. Now we are searching for people with the same syndrome. In Germany there is no one:-( Please write me and tell me about your live with SGS :-)
CoRDS, or the Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford, is based at Sanford Research in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It provides researchers with a centralized, international patient registry for all rare diseases. This program allows patients and researchers to connect as easily as possible to help advance treatments and cures for rare diseases. The CoRDS team works with patient advocacy groups, individuals and researchers to help in the advancement of research in over 7,000 rare diseases. The registry is free for patients to enroll and researchers to access.
Enrolling is easy.
After these steps, the enrollment process is complete. All other questions are voluntary. However, these questions are important to patients and their families to create awareness as well as to researchers to study rare diseases. This is why we ask our participants to update their information annually or anytime changes to their information occur.
Researchers can contact CoRDS to determine if the registry contains participants with the rare disease they are researching. If the researcher determines there is a sufficient number of participants or data on the rare disease of interest within the registry, the researcher can apply for access. Upon approval from the CoRDS Scientific Advisory Board, CoRDS staff will reach out to participants on behalf of the researcher. It is then up to the participant to determine if they would like to join the study.
