Individuals with Down syndrome (DS) are at risk for a variety of neurologic conditions across the lifespan ranging from epilepsy to Alzheimer's disease. Down Syndrome Regression Disorder (DSRD) is a rare condition affecting teens and young adults with DS that causes a rapid deterioration in their ability to function along with insomnia, catatonia, hallucinations, and new autistic features. This condition is severe but treatable.
