Rett syndrome (RTT) is a rare genetic postnatal neurological disorder of the grey matter of the brain that almost exclusively affects females. It is most often misdiagnosed as autism, cerebral palsy, or non-specific developmental delay. There is a simple blood test to confirm the presence of the MECP2 mutation associated with Rhett syndrome; however, since it is known that the MECP2 mutation is also seen in other disorders, the presence of the MECP2 mutation in itself is not enough for the diagnosis of Rett syndrome. The month of October is set aside to further educate about this rare disease.
