3. Low-Set Ears
Low-set ears are most commonly associated with conditions like the Turner and Down syndromes, and both these ailments are caused due to chromosome impairments. However, patients suffering with Down syndrome tend to have several other physical and development problems.
Turner syndrome tends to cause disruptions with the formation of the neck and head, along with problems related to growth and puberty. Low-set ears can also be caused by Jacobsen and Shprintzen-Goldberg syndromes, which also lead to several problems affecting development and growth.
4. Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome
Often, babies can be born with certain conditions that tend to have adverse effects on their development and growth. The Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome is one of the most common birth defects, and it basically causes the emergence of tiny holes and creases around the year. The baby can be larger than normal, have low blood sugar levels and an unusually big tongue.
Research suggest that this syndrome doesn’t lead to any chronic or major health ailments for individuals who are born with it.
However, as the baby begins to grow, one side of his/her body is likely to be bigger than the other, and he/she will be at a greater risk to develop certain tumors.
