What is the name of the genetic disorder?
Question Date: 2003-12-19
Answer 1:

There are a lot of genetic disorders, and they each have their own names, so it depends what disorder you're asking about. Plus, scientists are discovering that a lot of illnesses that we used to think were not genetic actually ARE caused by our genes. That means that the list of genetic disorders is getting longer all the time. If you write back with a description of the disorder, I might be able to tell you its name and a little information about it.
