Menkes Disease - A Day in the Life

NOVEMBER 05, 2015
Daniel DeFacto

Menkes disease (aka kinky hair disease) is a disorder that affects copper levels in the body that in turn can create a plethora of developmental problems.

During the Global Genes Patient Summit we talked with Daniel DeFabio, father of a boy with Menkes disease, about the condition and a typical day in his son's life.

November is Menkes awareness month. For more information, visit www.themenkesfoundation.org
