What are the RASopathies?

The RASopathies are a group of rare genetic conditions caused by mutations in genes of the Ras-MAPK pathway. Abnormalities of this pathway has/have profound effects on development and can cause one of several different syndromes, including: Cardio-Facio-Cutaneous (CFC), Costello, Legius, Nerofibromatosis type1 (NF1), Noonan, and Noonan with Multiple Letiginies (formerly called LEOPARD syndrome). These syndromes share many clinical features in common with one another, such as distinct facial features, developmental delays, cardiac defects, growth delays, neurologic issues, and gastrointestinal difficulties. While these individual syndromes are rare, as a group, the RASopathies are among the most common genetic conditions in the world.

Our Mission

RASopathies Network is a non-profit organization working to connect researchers and families while collaborating on treatment for the syndromes of the Ras/MAPK pathway. It is a place for families and researchers to learn and share information to improve the quality of life for those affected by a RASopathy. Our mission is to advance research of the RASopathies by bringing together families, clinicians and scientists. Learn more at http://rasopathiesnet.org
