*syndrome

Also, "an as yet" reads very strange. I suggest "is a yet unexplained..."

"syndrome" corrected, thanks.
"an as yet" is perfectly good English. Here are some other examples:

Okay. "as-yet" with a hyphen might be better, since it forms an adjective (a lot of the results you provided also do it this way). It would make it more eye-friendly, in my opinion.

changed to " as-yet"
