Background: Some patients with unusual genetic conditions are referred to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). They may not be eligible to join current research studies. Testing such patients is a good way to improve the skills of research staff. The findings could lead to new processes and research.
To recruit a diverse group of pediatric subjects with genetic disorders. To give clinic staff hands-on experience working with these patients.
Children any age with a known or suspected genetic disorder.
Participants will be screened with medical history and physical exam. They may have lab and other tests.
Family members may give DNA samples.
Participants will have:
Height, weight, and other measurements taken.
A clinical evaluation of their disorder.
They may have:
Blood, urine, and saliva samples taken
Imaging tests. These may include x-rays, scans, ultrasound, or skeletal survey.
A sleep study
A visit with other specialists at NIH
A genetic test from a commercial lab
Medical photographs taken
Participants may have follow-up visits. They may get medical or surgical treatment.
