Autism 10

Common Name(s)

Autism 10

Autism, the prototypic pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), is usually apparent by 3 years of age. It is characterized by a triad of limited or absent verbal communication, a lack of reciprocal social interaction or responsiveness, and restricted, stereotypic, and ritualized patterns of interests and behavior ({2:Bailey et al., 1996}; {9:Risch et al., 1999}). 'Autism spectrum disorder,' sometimes referred to as ASD, is a broader phenotype encompassing the less severe disorders Asperger syndrome (see ASPG1; {608638}) and pervasive developmental disorder, not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS). 'Broad autism phenotype' includes individuals with some symptoms of autism, but who do not meet the full criteria for autism or other disorders. Mental retardation coexists in approximately two-thirds of individuals with ASD, except for Asperger syndrome, in which mental retardation is conspicuously absent ({6:Jones et al., 2008}). Genetic studies in autism often include family members with these less stringent diagnoses ({10:Schellenberg et al., 2006}). For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of autism, see {209850}.
