Does everyone with Alpha-mannosidosis have growth problems?
When people with Alpha-mannosidosis are born, they may be larger than other children their age or growth faster than other children in the first few years of life. However, as people with Alpha-mannosidosis get older, they may have growth restriction, or not grow as much as others. A person with Alpha-mannosidosis will have their growth checked at every visit with their physician. The physician will monitor for delayed or abnormal growth. If you have a concern about abnormal growth, ask you or your child's physician to discuss growth progress .
