On this page, you will find information about a genetic change that was identified in a UDN participant. We are trying to find others with the same or similar condition.

Sharing information on this website is not a requirement of UDN participation. Only descriptions about participants who give explicit consent will appear here.

Changes in the PDE3A gene were identified in a male, age 15 with gastrointestinal dysmotility and chronic constipation (read full description).
