Author information

Center for Human Genetics, University of Leuven, Belgium.


In this report we present data on the longitudinal evolution of the mental versus the chronological age in 10 fragile X boys diagnosed before the age of 6 years and compare these findings to the longitudinal evolution in children with Down syndrome (6 patients) and Williams syndrome (4 patients). The present findings suggest that the evolution of the velocity of development is more decreased in fra(x) boys compared to the two other groups.
