Raising Awareness for Hunter Syndrome
Finding an underlying cause to your child’s long list of childhood illnesses and repeat visits to your pediatrician can be tough. But it’ll also be a huge relief when you’re able to pin-point the problem. Dr. Barbara Burton, MD, Professor of Pediatrics, Northwestern University; Dr. David Molter, Professor of Otolaryngology, Washington University School of Medicine, at St. Louis; Carrie Dunn, a Parent/Caregiver – and her son, Jackson Dunn-Kraus, join us to discuss Hunter syndrome. Seven-year-old Jackson has Hunter syndrome — a serious genetic disorder that primarily affects males. Hunter syndrome is difficult to diagnose because some of the symptoms like ear infections, adenoidectomies and hernias can be common in children. It’s important to see a doctor who can help recognize the particular combination of symptoms seen in this rare disease. The more awareness that exists for Hunter syndrome, the more likely that patients and their families can reach a diagnosis sooner with the help of their doctor. That’s coming up on The Balancing Act.
