Abstract

Childhood disintegrative disorder (CDD) (ICD-10 F84.3) is defined by a period of normal development before onset followed by gradual loss of previously acquired skills with the development of characteristic abnormalities of social, communicative and behavioural functioning. We report two children with apparent CDD, who showed amelioration of behaviour, language and motor regression after corticosteroid treatment.
