For Medics and Researchers

With so few cases of r(20) syndrome diagnosed worldwide, healthcare professionals may only ever encounter one of two patients over the course of their medical career. It is therefore vitally important that the latest and trusted information on r(20) syndrome is available to those clinicians managing r(20) patients in their care.

In line with one of the key aims of the charity Ring20 aim to be able to provide on the following pages of our website, as much information as possible on r(20) syndrome to all healthcare professionals working in this field, to assist them in their work from diagnosis, to treatment, management and care of their patients.
