Pagon Syndrome

Walker-Warburg syndrome (WWS) is a rare genetic multisystem disorder characterized by muscle disease and brain and eye abnormalities. The specific symptoms and severity of WWS vary greatly from case to case. The most consistent features are a smooth appearance of the surface of the brain due to lack of normal folds (lissencephaly), malformations of other brain structures (cerebellum and brain stem), various developmental abnormalities of the eyes, and progressive degeneration and weakness of the voluntary muscles (congenital muscular dystrophy). WWS is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait.

Palsy

This disorder is usually a result of injury to the brain during early development in the uterus, at birth, or in the first two years of life. Cerebral Palsy is not progressive.

Paludism

Malaria is a communicable parasitic disorder spread through the bite of the Anopheles mosquito. Major symptoms may vary depending on which species of parasite causes the infection and the stage of development of the parasite. Chills and fever commonly occur, although not every case follows the same pattern. Although the disorder was once thought to be under control throughout the world, malaria is a widespread infection especially in the tropics where certain types of mosquitos are becoming resistant to pesticides. The annual number of cases reported in the United States has increased in recent years.
