Aarskog Syndrome is a genetic disorder that mainly affects males. It affects the development of many parts of the body.
Aarskog–Scott syndrome is an inherited disease that affects the development of many parts of the body. A person's height, muscles, skeleton, genitals, and appearance of the face are affected by this genetic disease.
Aarskog–Scott syndrome is also called Aarskog syndrome, faciodigitogenital syndrome, shawl scrotum syndrome and faciogenital dysplasia. The syndrome is named after Dagfinn Aarskog and Charles I. Scott, Jr. who independently described the condition in 1970 and 1971, respectively.
Genetic testing for specific mutations may help in the diagnosis of the condition. Treatment targets the correction of various abnormalities in the body. Genetic counselling is indicated for individuals or families who carry genes for Aarskog–Scott syndrome.
