Introduction:

Aase syndrome or Aase-smith syndrome is a rare genetic disorder. Anemia and bone deformities are the important characteristics of this syndrome. Aase syndrome patients have one or more physical disabilities such as slow growth in childhood, but mental retardation and other neurological problems are not related with it. It is also known as congenital anemia-Triphalangeal thumb syndrome.

Anemia, slow growth, presence of three bones within the thumbs, pale skin, narrow shoulders, deformed ears, reduction of red cells in blood etc. are important symptoms of Aase syndrome.


Causes:

Cause of Aase syndrome is unknown. It is not a fully inherited diseas, in some cases have been shown to be inherited. The most important feature of this syndrome is Anemia. Anemia caused by underdevelopment of the bone marrow, which is where blood cells are formed.


Treatment:

Frequently apply pure blood, Hematopoiec stem cell transplantation (transplantation of blood stem cells derived from the bone marrow or blood. Prednisone (Prednisone is in a class of drugs called steroids) is also used to treat anemia related with Aase syndrome. But prednisone should only be used after finding the benefits and risks with a doctor who has experienced in treating anemic patients.


Prevention:

Chantix, the medicine manufactured by Pfizer Incl. is meant for triggering off smoking cessation and as it is an FDA approved quit smoking medicine, you can administer the anti-smoking drug without any hesitation and successfully get rid of nicotine addiction. However, significant chantix tidbits available at http://www.chantixmagic.com clarify that the medicine is meant to be taken only after getting hold of a Chantix prescription from the doctor.
