    Terrible Tantrums caused by rare DNA disorder

    This is so sad for boy and mum and dangerous but it also might be a start to a clue about criminally violent behavior and how some can't help themselves. Only a handful have been diagnosed and it was only discovered in the last few years.
    Doctors have said that Max Blakely, four, acts irrationally and violently against his will because of a one-in-a-million chromosome defect that they identify as '2p16.3 microdeletion'.

    'And when he does, I have to watch him like a hawk. He knows no boundaries when it comes to danger, so can easily hurt himself or someone else.

    Max's mother Sandra also says that Max has misaligned toes - another common symptom.

    'I've had bruises from where he's picked up heavy things and thrown them at me, he's lifted a knife before . . . the list is endless.

    Mrs Blakely believes Max is one of only a handful of people across the UK to have been diagnosed with the condition.
    Notice how Mrs. Blakely (where is Mr. Blakely, does he have any thoughts and does he even exist?) is the only person quoted in this article?

    Guess the DailyMail couldn't find even ONE professional to comment publically on the story.

    A spokesperson for rare chromosome charity Unique said: 'A 2p16.3 microdeletion is an extremely rare genetic condition.

    'Only in the last few years, due to advances in technology, has it been possible to detect and diagnose this disorder.'

    Although symptoms can vary, Max displayed some obvious indications in his early development that he had the defect.

    The four-year-old was slow to sit up on his own after he was born and took longer than the average child to learn to walk.

    He also did not talk until 12 months ago.

    Max's mother Sandra also says that Max has misaligned toes - another common symptom.

    And....

    A naughty boy whose extreme tempers see him kick and scream while flailing around on the floor has been diagnosed with a chromosome defect so rare it doesn't have a name.
    The article is sarcasm. No doctors or other experts are quoted.

    Extreme sarcasm. If tests were done to diagnose a "chromosome defect" the labs/universities that did the test would be mentioned.

    The "warrior gene" is far more well known and yeah it is associated with violent behavior.

    It sounds like a new diagnoses and most experts are hesitant to give an opinion until they have done substantial research. I'm glad to hear some other diagnoses other than video games and tv. Children have been violent long before there even was tv and video games. Just look at what the bible says what happened to Cane and Able.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    The article isn't sarcasm. It's an interview with a mother.
    There has only been a handful of kids with many different conditions.
    That doesn't mean they don't exist, it means they are very rare.

    How can misaligned toes be COMMON when only a handful have been diagnosed?

    I wonder if this could be linked to mental illness and/or personality disorders.

    Many inborn errors of metabolism and other chromosomal deletions/disorders have a "tantrum" element to them. They are looking at schizophrenia as some type of chemical disorder.
