What is Alström Syndrome?

Alström Syndrome is a rare, hereditary genetic disorder first described by Dr. Carl Henry Alström in Sweden in 1959.  Since that time, there have been just over 1,000 individuals diagnosed with Alström Syndrome in medical history.  

 

This rare disease is one of the most brutal diseases there is, as it touches every organ in the body.  Most children are lost in their late teens and early twenties due to these medical complications. Alström Syndrome can affect people of all nationalities, ethnic groups, and races.
