Herbal Remedies for Russell Silver Syndrome

Russell silver syndrome is a condition that is characterized by intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). Intrauterine growth restriction is a genetic condition that is caused during intrauterine life due to improper nutrition to the fetus. Obstetrics is a science of studying the health concerns of mother and fetus. The delivery of a child is based on various factors. A child's birth weight is one of the most important factors that affect the mortality and morbidity of the child. Apart from premature delivery, IUGR is the second cause of low birth weight babies. Intrauterine growth restriction can cause many anti-partam, Intrapartum, and postpartum complications in a fetus such as oligohydramnios acidosis, RDS, Russell silver syndrome, hyperviscosity syndrome, etc. But in this article, we are going to discuss one of the IUGR complications that are RSS i.e. Russell silver syndrome and its ayurvedic management.


Russell silver syndrome is a rare congenital growth disorder. This syndrome is one of 200 types of dwarfism and also one of the five types of primordial dwarfism. Males and females seem to be affected equally in number. It is associated with poor growth before birth and also after birth. This is genetically heterogeneous means that different genetic abnormalities can cause this syndrome. It was first described by Henry Silver in 1953 and Alexander Russell in 19541. These two discoverers saw different aspects of the same condition.

Russell Silver Syndrome


In the last few years, it has become possible to confirm the cause of this syndrome because of genetic testing. Two main genetic changes are currently known to cause this syndrome. One is chromosome 7 and another one is chromosome 11. These two chromosomal defects can cause this syndrome.


Signs and symptoms of RSS can vary from person to person. Symptoms of RSS are intrauterine growth restriction combined with the following symptoms:

  • Birth weight less than 2 kg
  • Baby refuses to feed
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Excessive sweating
  • Short stature
  • Scoliosis
  • Curving of the little finger (clinodactyly)
  • Body asymmetry that is arms and legs of different lengths
  • Delayed bone age
  • Psychosocial challenges
  • Poor appetite
  • Triangular face with a small jaw and pointed chin
  • Low muscle tone
  • Constipation


  • Temple syndrome


The diagnosis is made through clinical examination. But clinical examination alone can lead to overlaps with syndromes similar to this syndrome such as temple syndrome and 12q14 microdeletion syndrome. For this, you should go to test for 11p15 loss of methylation and mUPD7. If the report comes negative, then tests for mUPD16, mUPD20, and also testing for 14q32 should also take place for Temple syndrome for differential diagnosis. But mostly this syndrome is diagnosed by some clinical examination.


The treatment of choice is symptomatic. The caloric intake of children must be carefully controlled for providing the best opportunity for growth. If a child is unable to feed through the oral route then parenteral feeding should be done such as the percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy. In limb length differences or scoliosis, physiotherapy can alleviate the symptoms. At last, surgery is needed to improve the posture of the baby.

  • Use of dry foodstuffs should be avoided
  • A nutritious diet such as milk and meat soup should be used
  • Milk mixed with mulethi (glycyrrhiza glabra), the fruit of Kashmari (platenus orientalis) with sariva Hemidesmus indicus) and sugar
  • Meat soup should be given
  • Acharya Charaka has mentioned that when Vata is vitiated then the fetus gets emaciated. For the growth and development of this, the milk should be medicated with Sita (Saraca asoca), Kashmari (Platenus orientalis), and madhuka (Madhuca longifolia) and prescribed to the patient.
