Children with Down syndrome are known to have intellectual disability and a wide variety of malformations, such as congenital heart defects, small ears, small mouths, and other physical findings, along with medical conditions such as hypothyroidism, hip dislocation, hearing loss, cataracts, atlantoaxial instability, and leukemia. In 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) updated its guidelines for health supervision of the child with Down syndrome to assist the pediatrician to care for the child with Down syndrome (https://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/128/2/393).
