This is a genetic disorder (other names Shpritzen or a variant of Di George syndrome) where the development of the palate, the immune system and the heart may not be normal. You need to discuss the exact abnormalities found with your doctor, although we can correct some of the deformities and treat some of the problems associated with the syndrome we cannot correct the genetic abnormality. It is important to know how severely a child may be affected.
