What Is Barth Syndrome?

Barth syndrome is a condition that results in weakness of muscles (especially the heart), neutropenia (a reduction in white blood cells that fight bacterial infections), and below average height and weight. The June 5 episode of Guy's Grocery Games on the Food Network showed Chef Justin Warner donating the money he won to Barth syndrome. The 8th International Barth Syndrome Scientific, Medical & Family Conference will be held July 18-23 in Clearwater. For more information about this condition, go to
