The Nail Patella Syndrome Worldwide was established to support individuals with NPS. It provides medical information, networking opportunities, and friendship. The group publishes a quarterly newspaper and has also published a medical brochure. The organization is based in California, but serves members from around the world. Nail Patella Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that is usually apparent at birth or during early childhood. It is often misdiagnosed. Although the associated symptoms and physical characteristics may vary, characteristic abnormalities include improper development of the fingernails, toenails, kneecaps, and certain bones at the bend of the elbow. In addition, this syndrome sometimes results in abnormalities of the eyes and kidneys among other symptoms.
