Critical Years for Rothmund-Thomson Syndrome Foundation

Please Support RTS Research!


Dr. Wang and Ta-Tara Rideau are working on a new project involving patients with RTS who have developed osteosarcoma.  Through the years they have lost contact with many families and asked the Foundation if we would reach out on their behalf.  They are trying to gather tumor-specific information for the project and request that patients currently (or previously) diagnosed with osteosarcoma contact Ta-Tara via email at  This is time sensitive, so please reach out to Ta-Tara as soon as you can.  This is a step in the process of securing grants from the National Institute of Health (NIH) to further our understanding of RTS.

Rothmund-Thomson Syndrome (RTS) is a rare genetic disorder that can affect people of all races and nationalities. Symptoms often first appear during infancy, usually between three and six months of age, in the form of a skin rash on the cheeks. Patients can have just a few or several features of the syndrome.


The Mission of the Rothmund-Thomson Syndrome Foundation is to foster worldwide awareness and education about RTS and related disorders and to encourage research through support of scientists and physicians devoted to studying the clinical spectrum, molecular and cellular basis of RECQL4 and related syndromes.
