Welcome to the FDRF
Help Diagnose Rare Diseases
We've developed a free online tool to help diagnose rare diseases. You can access a beta version of it here.
Our tool uses a new method for helping match a set of signs and symptoms to a disease. We've also written extensive information about each disease in the tool (see Rare Diseases tab). All of our web pages for different diseases have photographs of patients, X-rays, and other images that will help a person trying to make a diagnosis.
We also provide free information about child growth. We have a large collection of growth charts from countries around the world (including charts for growth in different diseases).
The Forgotten Diseases Research Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We're a small organization and any donation would be greatly appreciated and would be used to improve our diagnosis tool.
Along the way, we're also providing
free information about child growth. We have a large collection of growth charts from countries around the world. Our
goal is to become the largest repository of growth charts on the planet.
International Growth Charts
Children from different places or of different ethnicities grow differently - sometimes very differently. If you've moved to a new country, the local growth charts may not make accurate assessments about your child.
Our collection of global growth charts currently has charts from 25 countries from all over the world. We have charts for Asians, Africans, Europeans, Indians, North Americans, South Americans, and others. We also have charts for Down syndrome and Cri du Chat syndrome. More countries and more charts for specific medical conditions are coming!
