Causes of the syndrome:
is caused by an error in cell division called non dis junction. This leaves a sperm or egg cell with an extra copy of chromosome 21 before or at conception.
- Decreased or poor muscle tone.
- Short neck, with excess skin at the back of the neck.
- Flattened facial profile and nose.
- Small head, ears, and mouth.
There isn't a cure for down syndrome. There's not really any treatment for it.
