Down syndrome is a genetic disorder that causes lifelong mental retardation, developmental delays and other problems. Down syndrome varies in severity, so developmental problems range from moderate to serious. Down syndrome is the most common genetic cause of learning disabilities in children.
Children with Down syndrome have a distinct facial appearance. Though not all children with Down syndrome have the same features, some of the more common features are:

Upward slanting eyes, unusual for the child's ethnic group
Unusually shaped ears
Children with Down syndrome may also have:
Poor muscle tone
Broad, short hands with a single crease in the palm

Infants with Down syndrome may be of average size, but typically they grow slowly and remain shorter than the other children of a similar age.
