8 month old sitting or turning over. Genetic or chromosomal disorder suspected. Excessive hair growth on the feet. Why?

my 8 month old grandson is not developing well - cannot sit up and is not trying to turn over. He has had some testing which seems to be indicating he has some kind of genetic or chromosomal disorder that will leave him developing very late and with the intellectual level of a 10 year old. It was noticed he had excessive hair on his fee when in utro. What is this can you explain?

Thank you for your query.

The description that you provide suggests development delay in your grandson. There can be a number of causes for it which involves prenatal, natal and postnatal stages. A detailed history and investigations is required to conclude a possible cause for the delayed development. As genetic disorder is suspected let us wait for the reports of the genetic investigations.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your grandson all the best.
