Cytogenetic Testing

CLINICAL INDICATORS FRO CYTOGENETIC TESTING (CHROMOSOME ANALYSIS)

Chromosome analysis is recommended as a routine method to diagnose (consider or rule out) genetic contributions in cases of different conditions:

  • Stillbirth and family history of neonatal deaths;
  • Identification of the newborn’s sex in cases of abnormal genitalia growth- and development-related problems identified at an early age;
  • Growth and physical development delay;
  • Dysmorphic features;
  • Multiple malformations;
  • Short stature;
  • Underdeveloped or ambiguous genitalia;
  • Intellectual disability;
  • Delayed sexual development.

 

Family History – if a patient’s first-degree relative has a chromosome abnormality, the patient must complete chromosome analysis;

Advanced Maternal Age Pregnancy – (in women after 30-35) is a risk factor contributing to chromosome abnormalities, which is why prenatal screening and, if necessary, diagnostic of possible chromosome abnormalities of the fetus must be completed.
