Morgan-Hatfield-Blumenthal Syndrome: An Introduction

Morgan-Hatfield-Blumenthal Syndrome, more commonly called MHBS and colloquially known as Morgan's, was first identified and classified in 208 by Heidi Morgan, Frank Hatfield and Lettie Blumenthal. It is a neurodevelopmental disorder, characterised by a loss of higher-level cognitive abilities, typically puzzle- and problem-solving, some literacy, planning , organisation and memory.

MHBS is a spectrum disorder; its severity can vary wildly. Some higher-functioning patients may only exhibit the key symptoms of impaired puzzle-solving, which often presents similarly to abnormally low intelligence.

Current estimates are that MHBS affects one person in 100, but this figure remains controversial due to the diagnostic difficulties. There has been a slight rise in diagnosed cases over the past decade, but this is usually ascribed to refinements in clinical testing procedures.

There is no cure for MHBS, although some patients have reported mild improvement from following dietary and exercise regimens or combination drug therapies.
