Clinical Information for Lack of expected normal physiol dev in childhood and adults (R62)

Failure to Thrive - A condition of substandard growth or diminished capacity to maintain normal function.

Failure to Thrive - A condition of substandard growth or diminished capacity to maintain normal function.

Mongolian Spot - A bluish-gray to gray-brown benign, melanocytic nevus found usually in the LUMBOSACRAL REGION of dark-skinned people, especially those of East Asian ancestry. It is usually congenital or appears shortly after birth, and disappears in childhood.

Tetralogy of Fallot - A combination of congenital heart defects consisting of four key features including VENTRICULAR SEPTAL DEFECTS; PULMONARY STENOSIS; RIGHT VENTRICULAR HYPERTROPHY; and a dextro-positioned AORTA. In this condition, blood from both ventricles (oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor) is pumped into the body often causing CYANOSIS.

Hypertelorism - Abnormal increase in the interorbital distance due to overdevelopment of the lesser wings of the sphenoid.

Livedo Reticularis - A condition characterized by a reticular or fishnet pattern on the skin of lower extremities and other parts of the body. This red and blue pattern is due to deoxygenated blood in unstable dermal blood vessels. The condition is intensified by cold exposure and relieved by rewarming.

Livedoid Vasculopathy - A rare cutaneous thrombotic disease due to occlusion of dermal vessels. It is characterized by purpuric maculae and ulcerations especially during summer which form scars called atrophie blanche. It is more associated with other syndromes (e.g., PROTEIN C DEFICIENCY; HYPERHOMOCYSTEINEMIA).

Sneddon Syndrome - A systemic non-inflammatory arteriopathy primarily of middle-aged females characterized by the association of LIVEDO RETICULARIS, multiple thrombotic CEREBRAL INFARCTION; CORONARY DISEASE, and HYPERTENSION. Elevation of antiphospholipid antibody titers (see also ANTIPHOSPHOLIPID SYNDROME), cardiac valvulopathy, ISCHEMIC ATTACK, TRANSIENT; SEIZURES; DEMENTIA; and chronic ischemia of the extremities may also occur. Pathologic examination of affected arteries reveals non-inflammatory adventitial fibrosis, thrombosis, and changes in the media.

Gestational Weight Gain - Increase in body weight of the mother during the course of her PREGNANCY.

Weight Gain - Increase in BODY WEIGHT over existing weight.

Pregnancy - The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.

Body Weight - The mass or quantity of heaviness of an individual. It is expressed by units of pounds or kilograms.

Lumbosacral Region - Region of the back including the LUMBAR VERTEBRAE, SACRUM, and nearby structures.
