Thank you for your query.

It is not easy to fit a case in one syndrome very easily. In Retts Syndrome there are some features of small hand and feet which is probably not in your daughter's case. A lot of variations are there and hence it shall take some observation and time to fit a case in a particular syndrome or a diagnosis.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter all the best.
