Andermann syndrome

Overview

What is Andermann Syndrome?

Andermann Syndrome is a genetic condition that is characterized by the missing or underdeveloped tissue connecting the left and right sides of the brain (corpus callosum) and progressive damage to the nerves that are responsible for muscle movement and sensation. This condition is most often seen in the Saguenay-Lac-St.-Jean and Charlevoix regions of northeastern Quebec.
