I think every pregnant woman is afraid of genetic disorders, yet many of them aren’t so lucky to avoid these disorders. it’s really edifying to read this article about these rare genetic disorders.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of most interesting and extremely rare genetic disorders from their list. The first one is Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. The subdivisions of this disorder are arthrochalasia type, cardiac valvular form, classic type, dermatosparaxis type, hypermobility type, kyphoscoliotic type, progeroid form, and vascular type. EDS symptoms depend on what subtype the person has, but they can range from chronic joint pain to fragility of the skin. Unfortunately I know Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome too well, believe me it’s terrible. The second one is CADASIL. Cerebral Autosomal-Dominant Arteriopathy with Subcortical Infarcts and Leukoencephalopathy is what the abbreviation CADASIL means. This rare genetic disorder affects the brain, particularly the small blood vessels in it. Stroke, cognitive impairment, migraine with aura, and psychiatric disturbances are symptoms of a person with CADASIL. At last, but not least we are mentioning Jumping Frenchmen of Maine. Jumping Frenchman of Maine is not a person jumping but it is a genetic disorder. Basically a person with the disorder suffers from extreme startle reaction. The cause is still unknown, but the disorder will usually occur in the teenage years.
