Dr. Barth is the pediatric neurologist who first comprehensively described the condition that now bears his name, Barth syndrome. He has published extensively on the disorder and has treated a number of boys with Barth syndrome, many of them from the same extended family in the Netherlands. He retired from some of his official responsibilities in November 2002, but he continues to be a devoted and vital part of the Barth Syndrome Foundation.
