Autistic Disorder in Noonan Syndrome

M Ghaziuddin et al. J Intellect Disabil Res.


Few reports have described the psychiatric co-morbidity of Noonan syndrome. While mental retardation is a common feature of Noonan syndrome, the diagnosis of autism using operational criteria has not been reported. In this paper, the authors describe the association of Noonan syndrome with autism. They propose that the co-morbid diagnosis of autism should be considered during the clinical assessment of persons with Noonan syndrome.
