My son was born with Down syndrome and at 7 months was diagnosed with cataracts in both eyes, the right cataract requiring removal at 11 months. He has been diagnosed with PDD/NOS by two clinicians and he has also had an obstructive ulcer. I just recently became aware of the association of galactosemia and cataracts. Previously I had assumed that the cataracts were due to Down syndrome. But now I am wondering what the best test would be to determine whether my son might have a form of galactasemia. My husband also has strong traits of Aspergers and my husband's brother had had a diagnosis of schizophrenia. (now deceased)
