The age at the start of symptoms is since birth and it´s commom in both sexes. * Show the syndrome problem in individuals, their clinical and behavioral characteristics. Contribute to a better understanding of the Aase Syndrome with syndromes that lead to similar symptoms.
Methodology: This literature review on the syndrome was performed with research of information in published scientific articles.
Result: Analyzed some common and rare symptoms, reports of observed cases of Aase-Smith syndrome, jointly with their respective symptoms and other syndromes, in addition whit the authors’ arguments in their articles that interpose, for example, about the genetic inheritance of the syndrome is dominant or recessive.
Conclusion: The relationship between Aase syndrome and congenital hypoplasia anemia is not fully understood by the scientists and the syndrome represents a challenge in the approach to treatment, since this syndrome has no cure and does not present a standard treatment approach.
Keywords: Aase syndrome, Aase-Smith, Symptoms.
