Early on in life, the participant had a gastrostomy tube (G tube) placed because she was not growing as expected. Around this time, she was diagnosed with anemia and a high white blood cell count (leukocytosis). Currently she is very short and has pain in her knees and ankles. She also has hyper-extensible joints and thin, fine hair.
The participant was delayed in meeting some of her early motor milestones. She sat up on her own at 12 months and walked at 24 months. Currently she is in preschool and making progress.
