Williams syndrome is caused by a genetic abnormality, specifically a deletion of about 27 genes from the long arm of one of the two chromosome 7s. Treatment includes special education programs and various types of therapy. The most common symptoms of Williams syndrome are heart defects and unusual facial features. Other symptoms include failure to gain weight appropriately in infancy failure to thrive and low muscle tone. People with Williams syndrome tend to have widely spaced teeth, a long philtrumand a flattened nasal bridge.
Most people with Williams syndrome are highly verbal relative to their IQ, and are often very sociable, having what has been described as a "cocktail party" type personality. People with Williams syndrome experience many cardiac problems, commonly heart murmurs and the narrowing of major blood vessels as well as supravalvular aortic stenosis. Other symptoms may include gastrointestinal problems, such as severe or prolonged colic abdominal pain and diverticulitisnocturnal enuresis bed wetting and urinary difficulties, dental irregularities and defective tooth enamelas well as hormone problems, the most common being high blood calcium.
People with Williams syndrome often have hyperacusia and phonophobia which resembles noise-induced hearing lossbut this may be due to a malfunctioning auditory nerve. Ophthalmologic issues are common in Williams syndrome. Because of the multiple genes that are missing in people with Williams syndrome, there are many effects on the brain, including abnormalities in the cerebellumright parietal lobeand left frontal cortical regions. This pattern is consistent with the visual-spatial disabilities and problems with behavioral timing often seen in Williams syndrome.
Frontal-cerebellar pathways, involved in behavioral timing, are often abnormally developed in people with Williams syndrome, which may be related to their deficits in coordination and execution of fine motor tasks such as drawing and writing. In addition, people with Williams syndrome often exhibit gross motor difficulties, including trouble walking down stairs, as well as overactive motor reflexes hyperreflexia and hyperactive, involuntary movement of the eyes nystagmus.
Williams syndrome is also noteworthy for exhibiting abnormalities in the parietal-dorsal areas of the neocortex, but not the ventral areas. The parietal-dorsal area handles visual processing that supports visual-spatial analysis of the environment, while the ventral is related to semantic recognition of visual stimuli, as well as the recognition of faces. Thus, people with Williams syndrome are often able to visually identify and recognize whole objects, and refer to them by name, but struggle with visuospatial construction seeing an object as being composed of many smaller parts, and recreating it and orienting themselves in space.
People with Williams syndrome are often affable and hyperverbal, demonstrating the decreased inhibition ability that stems from dorsal-frontal deficits. Increased volume and activation of the left auditory cortex has been observed in people with Williams syndrome, which has been interpreted as a neural correlate of patients' rhythm propensity and fondness of music. Similar sizes of the auditory cortex have been previously reported only in professional musicians.
The earliest observable symptoms of Williams syndrome include low birth weight, failure to thrivetrouble breastfeeding, nocturnal irritability and gastroesophageal reflux. Facial dysmorphies thought to be characteristic of the syndrome are also present early in development, as is heart murmur. Research on the development of the syndrome suggest that congenital heart disease is typically present at an early age, often at the infant's first pediatric appointment. Heart problems in infancy often lead to the initial diagnosis of Williams syndrome.
Developmental delays are present in most cases of Williams syndrome, and include delay of language abilities and delayed motor skill development. People with Williams syndrome develop language abilities quite late relative to other children, with the child's first word often occurring as late as three years of age.
Language abilities are often observed to be deficient until adolescence, in terms of semanticsmorphologyand phonologythough not in vocabulary. Williams syndrome is also marked by a delay in development of motor skills. Infants with Williams develop the ability to lift their heads and sit without support months later than typically developing children.L ips. They shape a third of your face.

Blame dwindling collagen and stretching ligaments. Curious as to the state of your own philtrum? Open your mouth: "On someone with a proportionate philtrum, a sliver of the upper incisors can be seen when lips are gently parted and the mouth is in repose," says Devgan.
