Rett’s syndrome: a case report.

Ghosh S, Kalita H.


Rett’s syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder that occurs almost exclusively in females and has a typically deteriorating course. We describe a case of Rett’s syndrome in a girl of three years. She had normal development till two years of age. She was presented to Psychiatry outpatient department (OPD), Assam Medical College and Hospital (AMCH) with loss of her acquired hand skills and speech since last one year. She also developed purposeless stereotypic movements of hands and unable to hold objects in her hands. Gradually she has developed broad based gait and teeth grinding. This has been the first case of Rett’s syndrome reported in North East India and West Bengal.
