Hi Lisa,
I don't know what this disease is but when I did a search on google it showed

If you go to the following website you will get the Disease characteristics, Diagnosis/testing, Management of Disease, and Genetic counseling. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK1523/

Also there is a specific website for this disease called "22Q Foundation" Their website is www.22q.org/

I hope this helps. If you have any problems finding the websites, let me know and I'll help if I can.

hi selma,thankyou for replying..and my daughters syringomyelia is most definitely linked to her syndrome..as well as all her other complications but without a doubt it is related..its just that her 22q11.2/goldberg and shprintzen syndrome is so rare,doctors dont even know the answers..but if u look at charlieraes post..most of what is listed my daughter has and then some...as my eldest daughter did also but with heart related problems.  i know i will maybe never find answers in this life...more and more research and developement is being done..its took me so many years of fighting for answers and now i know why i havent got them...because they arent there yet...one doctor told me years ago my daughters condition should be called maria jones syndrome(her name by the way ha!).. doesnt stop me searching..or even tryin to help others xxx
