Interdisciplinary Barth Syndrome Clinic at Kennedy Krieger
The Barth Syndrome Clinic at Kennedy Krieger Institute is an interdisciplinary clinic dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of Barth syndrome. Barth syndrome is a rare X-linked genetic disorder caused by the deficiency of a complex lipid called "cardiolipin." Because cardiolipin is the major phospholipid of mitochondria, the elements of all cells that make energy, many systems in the body can be affected. For 75 years, Kennedy Krieger's has been helping patients with physical and cognitive disabilities. This expertise, combined with our newly expanded, modern facilities, offer our patients access to top experts in their fields and innovative rehabilitative services, all under one roof.
