Odd teeth: A mother’s Internet sleuthing led to her daughter’s troubling diagnosis
At first Erica, who was born in 2006, seemed much like her older brother and two sisters. One of the few differences was that she was “extremely fussy” and far more prone to respiratory infections. She also seemed slower to develop:
8 months - Unable to sit without being propped up until 8 months
9 month checkup - She was unable to crawl on all fours: instead she dragged herself by her arms, not using her legs. All other milestones were normal
12 months - She had no teeth, was unable to stand without support or crawl on all fours. Muscle tone was abnormal. She was unusually small and she barely spoke. The teeth that had erupted were in the back of her mouth, not the front, as is typical
Can anyone venture a guess? It is an extremely rare disease!
