Rett syndrome is a disorder of brain development that occurs almost exclusively in girls. After 6-18 months of apparently normal development, affected girls develop problems with language, learning, coordination, and other brain functions. Repeated hand wringing or washing motions are characteristic of this condition. Research suggests that Rett syndrome occurs most often in females. Males with mutations in the related gene, MECP2, often die before birth or in infancy.
