Zellweger syndrome is a disease in which one of 13 genes (the PEX genes) has a defect. Zellweger syndrome is one of four diseases in which one of these 13 genes is affected. The group of the four diseases is referred to as PBD (Peroxisome Biogenesis Disorders). Zellweger syndrome is the most severe of the PBD group; meaning that a person suffering from Zellweger syndrome would have the most extreme defect. Defects include wide set eyes, high foreheads, underdeveloped eyebrow ridges, mental retardation, and seizures. There is currently no cure for Zellweger Syndrome and the mortality rate is very high.
