Pitt Hopkins is a rare, neuro-developmental disorder caused by a mutation of the TCF4 gene on the 18th chromosome. It is characterized by developmental delay, problems with motor coordination (ataxia) and balance, breathing abnormalities, seizures, gastrointestinal issues, lack of speech, and distinctive facial features. Pitt Hopkins is a random mutation and affects all races and both genders equally. Because loss of TCF4 prevents neurons from functioning currently, our scientist believe that studying Pitt Hopkins will also give us important insight into other neurological disorders with no known etiology like Alzheimers, Autism and Epilepsy.
