    Down syndrome, also known as Trisomy 21, is the presence of a third copy of chromosome 21, typically caused by nondisjunction during the production of gametes. Down syndrome is associated with several specific physical characteristics, including decreased muscle tone, flat facial features, an upward slant to the eyes, abnormally shaped ears, a single deep crease across the center of the palm, folded skin on the inner corners of the eyes, and ability to extend joints beyond the usual, among others.
