Mental retardation Mietens Weber type

Common Name(s)

Mental retardation Mietens Weber type

Mental retardation - Mietens Weber type refers to a form of intellectual disability that is characterized mainly by below-average mental ability, a damaged cornea, involuntary eye movement, elbow problems and an unusually short stature (dwarfism). Thus, individuals with this form of intellectual disability often have problems performing physical activity and have problems with vision. Like other people with intellectual disability, an individual with this condition often has problems with reasoning and solving problems, as well as performing day-to-day tasks. This condition is often diagnosed during childhood. Doctors diagnose this form of intellectual disability if an unusually small stature and eye problems are observed. Signs like walking and talking late, slow mastering of basic tasks, and having difficulty remembering things may also suggest this condition in children. Treatment is based on a case-by-case basis and depends on the specific needs of the patient. Physical therapists often help patients develop an exercise program to increase muscle strength. Eye specialists may suggest surgery to fix the damaged cornea to allow for better vision. Doctors seek help from various therapists and community services to provide support and care for families affected by intellectual disability.
