    One of the most common syndromes, as well as the least common diagnosed. I feel like something should be done about this. Even though there is no way of curing stickler syndrome, there are ways of controlling it, and with the serious complications which go along with this syndrome I feel like diagnosing it would be necessary. This glog was really well done!
