Fragile-X Syndrome (FRAXA) is the most common chromosomal cause of mental retardation, with an incidence of 1/1000 live births. The genetics, molecular biology, neurochemistry, physical, behavioral, and psychiatric phenotypes will be described with implications for management and treatment. In addition, the newly discovered Fragile-X-E (FRAXE) Syndrome, a mental retardation syndrome at an adjacent chromosomal site, will be discussed.
