Cutis Laxa is a disorder of the connective tissue which renders the tight elastic tissues of the ear, lungs and skin to become loose. This condition causes deep underlying problems rather than external problems. Developmental delays, fragile bones, loose joint and girth defects are apparent symptoms. The condition can create cardiac problems and may also lead to the abnormal narrowing of arteries. The mutation of the gene which is involved in formation and functioning of elastic fibers causes Cutis Laxa.
