    • “ It occurs in about one in every two hundred conceptions.” (Grace D. Matzen, M.A.; updated by Rebecca Kuzins)
  • 4. Symptoms
    • “ The slanted appearance of the eyes first reported by Down is caused by a prominent fold of skin called an epicanthic fold (a fold in the upper eyelid near the corner of the eye). This fold of skin is accompanied by excess skin on the back of the neck and abnormal creases in the skin of the palm. In addition, the skull is wide, with a flat back and a flat face. The hair on the skull is sparse and straight.” (Grace D. Matzen, M.A.; updated by Rebecca Kuzins)
  • 5. Treatment/Therapy
