Please reply to this message by email as I don' t know how often I'll be able to check back here.
I was hoping someone has heard of this disorder. I have searched and searched but cannot put a name to it. The symptoms are:
- some sort of septal defect which resolved by itself (we don't know which kind it was)
- club fingers and toes (although the toes aren't as noticable as the fingers)
- short stature (although that may just be because his mother is short, but he's 5'6"ish)
- oligodontia (he's missing his wisdom teeth)
Those are the only symptoms we've noticed, but the real reason we're trying to find out what it might be is because our daughter seems to have club toes herself and we're afraid she has something wrong with her heart too (of course, the doctors are all poo-pooing us without really checking her out... we do have an appointment with a new doctor now and we're hoping she'll check our daughter out more thoroughly)
His mother drank while she was pregnant and tried to kill him and his twin brother, who died in utero... that is probably what caused his defects, but that doesn't explain why our daughter has club toes.
Thanks for your help
