    Introduction

    Fragile X syndrome is also called as Martin–Bell syndrome, or Escalante's syndrome is a genetic syndrome. Nearly half of all children with fragile X syndrome meet the criteria for a diagnosis of autism. It is an inherited cause of intellectual disability especially among boys. It is caused by defect in chromosome Xq 27.3 .

    Treatment

    Fragile X syndrome is a genetic disorder which occurs as a result of a mutation of the fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1)gene on the X chromosome, most commonly an increase in the number of CGG tri nucleotide repeats in the 5' un translated region of FMR1.

    Statstics

    A Belgium screening study in 2003 estimated an overall prevalence of FXS in the general population of 2.3/10,000 (or 1 in 4,425). Other estimates suggest it is present in 1 in 4,000 males and 1 in 8,000 females but that this may be an underestimation. Prevalence depends on the population studied.The premutation is far more common.
