What is PURA Syndrome?

PURA Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that affects neurodevelopment. It was first described in medical literature in October of 2014. PURA syndrome arises when there is a genetic alteration affecting one of a person’s two copies of the PURA gene. The defect can be a single letter spelling change within the gene, a small insertion or deletion within the gene, or even a larger deletion removing one whole copy of the gene (and potentially many neighbouring genes as well).

Educate. Advocate. Connect.

Research is vital to improving the lives of those with PURA Syndrome. Learn how you can help by getting involved with our Global Registry.

Our community grows every year and we want to do whatever we can to support one and other along the way. Together we are stronger!
