Children may have some signs and not others, but to be diagnosed with a syndrome they would need to have a certain number of signs. However, a child could have some of the signs and symptoms and not have a syndrome. </p><p>Syndromes are genetic conditions, meaning that they involve a gene or chromosome mutation. Some of these are hereditary, but most are spontaneous. </p><p>Geneticists can help confirm a diagnosis of a syndrome, while genetic counsellors can provide information about syndromes. </p><p>For more information, please see the section on <a href="/Article?contentid=1580&language=English">Genetics & Heart Conditions. </a></p><h2>What are heart-related syndromes?</h2><p>Heart-related syndromes are genetic conditions that, in addition to affecting other parts of the body, can also affect the heart.
