My two year old son has various symptoms during illnesses and other symptoms of other disorders:
> top four scissor teeth missing (no teeth in the jaw), bottom scissor teeth mishapen and pointed (preliminary diagnosis of ectodermal dysplasia)
> continuous bouts of pneumonia, MRSA, ear infections, runny nose and oral anitbiotics aren't very effective. He is usually hospitalised and given intrivenise antibiotics to which he reacts very quickly.
> when he does become ill, his white blood cell and platelette counts are very high. Blood tests indicated toxic granulation of the neutrofils.
> bouts of constipation for no obvious reason
> tested positive for Tuberculosis in February 2006, but no confirmation of where the TB was situated. (confusion caused with excessive sweating and hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, but sweating stopped when TB commenced) . After 6 months on TB medication, he has become ill again and we are awaiting test results.
The list goes on....
