In the Omim database you can look up symtoms and case histories.
Since the entry is rather long I will give you the keywords
that you can use to get a hit.

312750 RETT SYNDROME [RTT; RTS; AUTISM, DEMENTIA, ATAXIA, AND LOSS OF
PURPOSEFUL HAND USE]

The Omim  database is available at many gopherholes or Web servers.
