Summaries for Asperger Syndrome

GARD : 20 Asperger syndrome is part of the autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a group of disorders that affects the development of social and communication skills. Unlike many children with ASD, children with Asperger syndrome do not have early language delays, and often have well developed language skills and normal to above average intelligence. However, they may use unusual speech patterns and have a hard time understanding irony, humor, and sarcasm or gestures and social cues important to normal conversation. Many children with Asperger syndrome develop an obsessive interest in one topic or object. They may use high-level vocabulary or complex statistics in conversation. Children with Asperger syndrome may have delayed motor skills and thus can appear uncoordinated and clumsy compared to their peers. Other features of Asperger syndrome include difficulty interacting with peers, inappropriate social or emotional behavior, and engaging in repetitive routines. Both children and adults with Asperger syndrome are at an increased risk for depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), mood and anxiety disorders, and other mental health disorders. The cause of Asperger syndrome, like most ASDs, is not fully understood, but there is a strong genetic basis, which means it does tend to run in families. Multiple environmental factors are also thought to play an important role in the development of all ASDs. Treatment for Asperger syndrome depends on each person's age and needs, and the recommendation is for treatment to begin as early as possible. Many people with Asperger syndrome can learn strategies to manage their symptoms. Treatment may include behavioral therapy, speech and language therapy, support in school, and mental health counseling. Medications may sometimes be used for behavioral or mood disorders. Of note: the newest edition, updated in 2013, of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V), which is used predominantly in the United States (US), replaced the terms Asperger syndrome and other pervasive developmental disorders with the umbrella diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. This means that currently, Asperger syndrome is not officially considered a separate disorder in US, but instead it is now part of the autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, many doctors still use this term. The World Health Organization International Classification of Diseases, (ICD-11) which is used in other countries throughout the world still uses Asperger syndrome as a subtype of ASD.

MalaCards based summary : Asperger Syndrome, also known as asperger's disease, is related to autism spectrum disorder and autism. An important gene associated with Asperger Syndrome is ASPG2 (Asperger Syndrome, Susceptibility To, 2), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Cell adhesion molecules and Transmission across Chemical Synapses. The drugs Risperidone and Milnacipran have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, cortex and amygdala, and related phenotypes are behavior/neurological and growth/size/body region

Disease Ontology : 12 An autism spectrum disorder that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development.

NINDS : 53 Asperger syndrome (AS) is a developmental disorder.  It is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), one of a distinct group of neurological conditions characterized by a greater or lesser degree of impairment in language and communication skills, as well as repetitive or restrictive patterns of thought and behavior.  Other ASDs include:  classic autism, Rett syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (usually referred to as PDD-NOS). Unlike children with autism, children with AS retain their early language skills. The most distinguishing symptom of AS is a child’s obsessive interest in a single object or topic to the exclusion of any other.  Children with AS want to know everything about their topic of interest and their conversations with others will be about little else.  Their expertise, high level of vocabulary, and formal speech patterns make them seem like little professors.  Other characteristics of AS include repetitive routines or rituals; peculiarities in speech and language; socially and emotionally inappropriate behavior and the inability to interact successfully with peers; problems with non-verbal communication; and clumsy and uncoordinated motor movements. Children with AS are isolated because of their poor social skills and narrow interests.  They may approach other people, but make normal conversation impossible by inappropriate or eccentric behavior, or by wanting only to talk about their singular interest.    Children with AS usually have a history of developmental delays in motor skills such as pedaling a bike, catching a ball, or climbing outdoor play equipment.   They are often awkward and poorly coordinated with a walk that can appear either stilted or bouncy.

KEGG : 36 Asperger syndrome (AS), a behavioral disorder that is related to autism, is associated with abnormal social functioning and repetitive behaviors but not with a decrease in intelligence or linguistic functionality. AS may be present with several comorbid disorders including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, and Tourette syndrome. The standard pharmacotherapies typically administered to other comorbid disorders are also prescribed to AS patients. Although medication therapy may be beneficial in stabilizing AS patients, it does not cure the disorder. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) may be an effective behavioral approach to implement, and it may also reduce the number of pharmacotherapies necessary for AS patients. Although medication therapy may be beneficial in stabilizing AS patients, it does not cure the disorder. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) may be an effective behavioral approach to implement, and it may also reduce the number of pharmacotherapies necessary for AS patients. The pathophysiology of AS remains unclear and the causes of AS are not known. The male-to-female ratio is 8:1 in AS. Genetic factors appear to play a role in AS because of their tendency to run in families and the high concordance in twins. However, a specific gene for AS has not been identified. Recent studies have suggested that the mutations in two X-linked genes, neuroligins NLGN3 and NLGN4 are associated with autism and AS.
