FAQs on Aarskog - Scott syndrome

1. Which doctor treats Aarskog–Scott syndrome

Aarskog–Scott syndrome is a genetic defect that may become evident at different stages of life. Multiple specialities are involved. A pediatrician may turn suspicious with a child born with congenital anomalies like heart defects or a cleft palate. Sometimes, a diagnosis results when there is a detailed search into the cause of short stature, undescended testes, and other physical abnormalities. A team of specialist including a physician specialized in Internal Medicine, surgeon and dentist may all be involved in the treatment of this condition.
