In 70 percent of DS cases, this is the only disorder the individual
has. However, other conditions and syndromes have been found in
association with DS. These include malformation of the skeleton,
ears, eyes, kidneys and nervous system, as well as:
Okihiro's syndrome, an association of DS with forearm malformation
and hearing loss,
Wildervanck syndrome, fusion of neck vertebrae and hearing loss,
Holt-Oram syndrome, abnormalities of the upper limbs and heart,
Morning Glory syndrome, abnormalities of the optic disc or "blind
Goldenhar syndrome, malformation of the jaw, cheek and ear, usually
on one side of the face.
