Prenatal Testing with panorama – Trisomy


A trisomy is a genetic condition caused by extra copies of a chromosome. Down syndrome, one of the most well-known genetic conditions, is caused by an extra copy of chromosome 21. Generally, the larger the extra chromosome is in size, the more severe problems it will cause. For instance, chromosome 21 is the second smallest autosomal chromosome, and babies with Down syndrome often lead healthy and productive lives. However, babies with Trisomy 13, or Patau syndrome, will typically pass away within the first few weeks of life.
