Trisomy 21 (Downs Syndrome) is a genetic disorder caused when abnormal cell division results in extra genetic material from chromosome 21. Down syndrome causes a distinct facial appearance, intellectual disability, developmental delays, and may be associated with thyroid or heart disease. Medical specialists will conduct additional screenings.
Trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome) is a chromosomal condition associated with abnormalities in many parts of the body. Individuals with trisomy 18 often have slow growth before birth (intrauterine growth retardation) and a low birth weight.
Trisomy 13 (Patau Syndrome) is a severe chromosomal condition, with multiple malformations due to an additional copy of all or part of chromosome 13. The cause of this additional copy of chromosome 13 is unknown. Babies are usually identified at birth due to several recognizable physical features but the diagnosis is confirmed with genetic testing.
IT IS RECOMMENDED A POSITIVE READING SHOULD BE FOLLOWED UP BY ADDITIONAL SCREENINGS AND PROFESSIONAL ADVICE FROM YOUR MEDICAL PROVIDER.
