Canavan disease

Symptoms

Are there learning problems associated with Canavan disease?

Children with the infantile form of Canavan disease usually do not develop the ability to talk. They may also develop vision loss. Although rare, hearing loss has also been reported.

Children with the milder form of Canavan disease may have some problems with speech and may have learning difficulties.
