Around 5 months old, the participant was noticed to have low muscle tone (hypotonia), developmental delays, and difficulty growing (failure to thrive). He also had respiratory failure due in part to compression of his left mainstem bronchus by his aorta, which was corrected with surgery. During his first year of life, he had multiple and prolonged hospitalizations.
His low tone has been improving, but continues to be an issue. He began walking at 18 months old but has poor coordination and cannot walk up steps independently. He can now hold a pen and scribble and has average cognitive abilities. He has delays in his verbal skills.
