Étiologie des troubles de l’oralité alimentaire dans le syndrome de Barth

Abstract : Barth syndrome (BHTS) is a rare mitochondrial, multisymptomatic genetic disease (250 patients worldwide). While the cardiac and hematological implications are at the forefront of the clinical picture, complaints about feeding are common. This study aims to determine the role of possible disorders of oro-myo-facial functions in eating disorders in BHTS.
The thirty-eight subjects who participated in the study completed a specifically designed questionnaire and were examined during filmed interviews. The analysis of these data allows the presence of eating disorders to be objectified and suggests that disorders of oro-myo-facial functions are one of the factors at play in these difficulties. Early management of the orofacial sphere, particularly gnoso-practical, seems necessary for this population in order to support the development of oral feeding abilities. However, oro-myo-facial dysfunctions alone do not account for the eating disorders identified in this population, given the multifactorial origin of these disorders. Further investigations will therefore be necessary in order to clarify their etiology.
