What is Aarskog syndrome?
Aarskog syndrome is a genetic condition that includes health issues like short stature, facial, skeletal, genital differences, and sometimes mild intellectual disability. Aarskog syndrome affects males and females, but males tend to be more severely than females. Not all people with Aarskog syndrome are affected similarly and health problems can be different even within familes.
