Genetic Syndromes 

Genetic syndromes are caused by an abnormality in the genome, such as a missing or extra piece or copy of a chromosome or an error in the DNA.

The syndromes and the impact of their associated abnormalities can vary greatly, and often require additional medical attention at the time of delivery. 

The St. Louis Fetal Care Institute has the experience and technology to prenatally diagnosis these syndromes as well as assist the family in preparing for delivery and beyond.

Genetic diagnoses that the St. Louis Fetal Care Institute follows include:

Trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome)

Trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome)

Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome)

Monosomy X (Turner syndrome)

22q deletion syndrome (DiGeorge syndrome)

Skeletal dysplasias (e.g. achondroplasia, osteogenesis imperfecta, thanatophoric dysplasia, etc.)
