General Discussion
COST disorder is an unusual condition that arises during very early fetal advancement as well as impacts a number of body organ systems. The term CHARGE comes from the very first letter of some of the more common functions seen in these children:

(C) = coloboma (generally retinochoroidal) and cranial nerve flaws (80-90 %).
(H) = heart defects in 75-85 %, especially tetralogy of Fallot.
(A) = atresia of the choanae (obstructed nasal breathing passages) (50-60 %).
(R) = retardation of growth (70-80 %) and also development.
(G) = genital underdevelopment due to hypogonadotropic hypogonadism.
(E) = ear problems and sensorineural hearing loss (>> 90 %).

Medical diagnosis is based on a particular collection of functions (see listed below). In addition to the COST features above, a lot of children with FEE syndrome have other functions, consisting of unique face functions: asymmetric facial nerve palsy, cleft lip or taste buds, esophageal atresia (blind-ending food pipe) or tracheoesophageal fistula (connection between the wind pipe as well as the food pipeline). The symptoms of FEE syndrome vary substantially from one child to an additional. The reason for CHARGE is normally a new mutation (change) in the CHD7gene, or seldom, genomic changes around chromosome 8 where the CHD7 genetics is located.
