Alabama Disability Attorney VESTAVIA Caudal Regression Syndrome

Alabama Disability Attorney VESTAVIA Caudal Regression Syndrome

Alabama Disability Attorney VESTAVIA HILLS: Caudal regression syndrome is a disorder that impairs the development of the lower (caudal) half of the body. Affected areas can include the lower back and limbs, the genitourinary tract, and the gastrointestinal tract.

In this disorder, the bones of the lower spine (vertebrae) are frequently misshapen or missing, and the corresponding sections of the spinal cord are also irregular or missing. People with caudal regression syndrome can also have an abnormal side-to-side curvature of the spine (scoliosis). The spinal abnormalities may affect the size and shape of the chest, leading to breathing problems in some individuals.

Some individuals who suffer from mild cases of Caudal Regression Syndrome may not experience any symptoms; other affected individuals may be born with inward- and upward-turning feet (clubfeet), or the feet may be outward- and upward-turning (calcaneovalgus). Some people experience decreased sensation in their lower limbs.

Often the kidneys are malformed; defects include a missing kidney kidneys that are fused together or duplication of the tubes that carry urine from each kidney to the bladder. These kidney abnormalities can lead to frequent urinary tract infections and progressive kidney failure. Damage to the nerves that control bladder function, a condition causes affected individuals to have progressive difficulty controlling the flow of urine.

In severe cases, both males and females have a lack of development of the genitalia.
