One week ago my wife gave birth to a beutiful girl. However she (Elena) was born with clubfeet, an almost complete stiffness of the jaw muscle which makes it almost impossible to open her mouth, and the fingers of her right hand are webbed and the hand itself hangs completely down as the muscle (or maybe tendons) from the elbow down to the back of the hand is completely inactive or maybe not even developed. It has also been observed that she does not fully empty her bladder, and quiet often I have seen her roll her eyes upwards. She is at present in a childrens clinic where she is being cared for and where she is receiving daily massages which have succeeded in opening her mouth slightly. Apart from that, all her other organs including her brain are working perfectly and she looks normal in every way save for what I described above. The doctors at this point are still not sure what kind of syndrome this is if it is a syndrome at all. Is there anyone out there that has known or seen a a new born baby with these exact symptons and could therfore give me any useful information on this supposed syndrome which seems to indicate a general muscular problem?
My wife(41) gave birth to Elena 10 days overdue by cesarian and its her first child. My wife neither smokes, drinks or takes any medication and there is no trace of this problem in any of our relatives.
Will appreciate any info on this problem
