Mental Retardation - cataracts - calcified pinnae - myopathy refers to a form of intellectual disability that is characterized mainly by below-average mental ability, clouding of the eye lens, muscle problems, and excess calcium formed in the outer ear. Problems with the muscles start in the lower legs and can spread to the hands. Like other individuals with intellectual disability, an individual with this condition often has problems with reasoning and solving problems, as well as performing day-to-day tasks. The condition is also often diagnosed during childhood. Doctors diagnose this form of intellectual disability if eye, ear, and muscle problems are observed. Signs like walking and talking late, slow mastering of basic tasks, and having difficulty remembering things may also suggest this condition in children. Treatment is based on a case-by-case basis and depends on the specific needs of the patient. Eye and muscle specialists can provide treatment for the cataracts and muscle-related symptoms. Often times, surgery can be used to correct those symptoms. Doctors seek help from various therapists and community services to provide support and care for families affected by intellectual disability.
