Welcome to the Cantu Syndrome Interest Group web-site.

We are a group of clinicians and scientists interested in the causes and potential for treatments for Cantu Syndrome. We are launching this website and the Cantu Syndrome Interest Group at this time, since recent developments in the understanding of the underlying mechanisms brings new hope for potential therapies.

We encourage affected individuals and their families, and caring clinicians to come together and join this effort, both to raise awareness and help each other deal with the symptoms, and to help search for improved outcomes.

The more people that are aware of Cantu Syndrome, the better, and this in turn will ensure that families, physicians and other health care professionals are educated about this condition.

We will post information as relevant to provide support and an exchange of information among families who are affected with Cantu Syndrome. We encourage anyone with a diagnosis consistent with Cantu syndrome to contact Dr. Dorothy K. Grange at or (1) 314-454-6093 for further information and to join the Cantu Syndrome Registry to learn about potential testing and clinical trials that will be developed.
