Abstract

Although respiratory abnormalities and autonomic dysfunction in patients with congenital central alveolar hypoventilation disorders persist throughout life, the prognosis for these children has improved considerably in recent years. This improvement may be attributed to wider recognition of such disorders, specialized centers treating such children, and improved technology to treat and monitor these children throughout life.
