        For parents, caregivers, health care providers, and teachers, concerns and questions often arise regarding the care and well-being of individuals with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome. 

Adolescents and adult women with CdLS have the same gynecologic issues as all women. In some cases their symptoms can be difficult to diagnose and in other cases routine symptoms can be quite burdensome.



Gynecologic examinations and PAP tests are recommended in asymptomatic women from age 21. If results are normal, the PAP test is only recommended every three years. In some individuals, an exam under anesthesia is needed in order to be able to do an adequate examination.
