Cri du Chat syndrome is a rare genetic disorder caused by the deletion of some, or all, of the 5th chromosome. This can lead to a variety of health complications to developmental delays and a distinctive cat cry in newborns. A spectrum disorder, those with CdCs can have completely different difficulties compared to another, with the majority also being diagnosed with ASD.
