  • Chromosome 5q deletion syndrome: A rare chromosomal disorder where the long arm (q) of chromosome 5 is deleted resulting in various abnormalities.
  • Circulation symptoms: Symptoms affecting the circulatory system
  • Congenital conditions: Any condition that you are born with such as birth defects or genetic diseases.
  • Congenital heart defects: Heart defects that a baby is born with.
  • Cornel syndrome: A very rare disorder observed in only a few families. The condition is characterized by deafness, heart problems and droopy eyelids

  • Secobarbital -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Secobarbital during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Turner Syndrome: Rare chromosome syndrome with one X but no second X or Y chromosome.
  • Valsartan -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Valsartan during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Velocardiofacial syndrome: A genetic disorder which can present with a wide range of phenotypic manifestations which has lead to a number of different names being assigned to the various presentations e.g. DiGeorge Syndrome and Cayler Anomaly Face Syndrome.
