Genetic Syndromes: Signs and Symptoms

What are the signs and symptoms of genetically linked heart conditions?

The symptoms of heart conditions that are associated with genetic disorders are the same as in heart conditions that are not caused genetically.

Common symptoms associated with heart conditions and genetic disorders include:

  • A blue tint to the skin called cyanosis
  • Shortness of breath
  • Trouble feeding and gaining weight in infants
  • Excessive sweatiness
  • Abnormal facial features or multiple organ system involvement

Talk to your doctor if your child has a genetic condition and any of these symptoms.
