Barth Syndrome

Barth syndrome is a genetic condition that mainly affects males. Some of the symptoms of the condition include enlarged heart, low blood cell count, weakness of muscles, and fatigue. Additionally, there can be increased levels of chemicals like 3-methyglutaconic acid and 2-ethyl hydracrylic acid in the urine or blood. Barth syndrome is caused by changes (mutations) in the TAZ gene and has an X-linked inheritance pattern.
