4H Leukodystrophy

4H Lekodystrophy involves hypomyelination, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and hypodontia. It is also known as POLR-3Related Leukodystrophy. 4H syndrome symptoms include delayed or abnormal puberty, issues with central nervous system signal transmission, abnormal development of teeth, and symptoms tend to progressively get worse over time. There is not yet a known cure.
