DiGeorge Syndrome | Conditions We Treat | Pediatric Endocrinology Specialty | UC Davis Children's Hospital

DiGeorge syndrome

This genetic syndrome, also known as 22q11 deletion syndrome, occurs when a small amount of genetic material is missing and can be associated with several hormone conditions. These conditions include hypoparathyroidism (insufficient production of parathyroid hormone resulting in low calcium levels), growth hormone deficiency, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism. Hormone levels, growth and other signs and symptoms of these conditions are checked at regular intervals since children may be affected differently. If any of these conditions are present and treatment is indicated, medication is available and closely managed by a pediatric endocrinology specialist.
