Fragile X syndrome
Fragile X syndrome is the most common inherited cause of cognitive impairment in males. The most common problems are cognitive impairment and behavioral disturbances, with 4% to 8% of cognitive impairment or developmental delay caused by fragile X mutation. The clinical severity is directly related to the number of repeats in the FMR1 gene.
