Chromosome Abnormalities and Genetic Counseling
Background: World Health Organization estimates that million couple worldwide currently suffer from infertility. Recurrent pregnancy loss RPL is also another major concern. Chromosomal rearrangements play a crucial role in primary and secondary infertility and RPL. Methods: Karyotyping was performed for cases with the history of infertility and RPL over a period of one year. Samples were processed according to procedures of AGT cytogenetic laboratory manual. Conclusion: Evaluation of chromosomal abnormalities in couple is warranted prior to planning pregnancy especially for assisted reproductive management cases.
Prenatal Genetic Counseling in Congenital Anomalies
Medical geneticists and genetic counselors regularly see families attending the genetic counseling clinic with questions about chromosome abnormalities. These families may themselves have had a child affected with a chromosome condition; or, there may have been a history elsewhere in the family. The presentation may have been due to infertility or reproductive loss. Questions may include the following: What is known about this condition? What caused this to happen?
The number of cloned genes and genetic loci associated with inherited retinal disease as a function of time. Data and figure courtesy of Stephen P. Example of somatic mosaicism for a cytogenetic abnormality in a 4-month-old boy seen at the ophthalmology clinic for evaluation of bilateral uveal colobomata. He had a history of failure to thrive, agenesis of the corpus callosum, conductive hearing loss, dysmorphic facial and skeletal features, small kidneys, and hypospadias. Although a karyotype of peripheral blood lymphocytes was normal A , a repeat study on a skin biopsy specimen revealed almost complete absence of 1 homologue of chromosome 13 B. Because this abnormality would be predicted to delete the retinoblastoma gene locus on 13q14, the patient began surveillance for the presence of ocular tumor.

The impact of genetic variability on embryogenesis and fetus development established medical genetics as essential for the prevention of congenital anomalies, early detection and appropriate management. Advances in ultrasonography equipment and technique allow early detection of many congenital malformations. In addition, genetic testing can be performed in a prenatal setting on a variety of biological samples obtained by invasive and noninvasive procedures: chorionic villus sampling, amniocentesis, cordocentesis, or maternal blood collection i. In the past, only a small percentage of congenital anomalies had a readily identifiable etiology; genetic diagnostic procedures can provide at least some of the answers for the remaining unsolved cases. Undoubtedly, the need for appropriate case management and counseling justifies the importance of uncovering the underlying genetic cause of birth defects.

Ни одной машины. Он подбежал к крепко сбитому охраннику. - Мне срочно нужно такси. Охранник покачал головой. - Demasiado temperano. Слишком рано.
Она должна немедленно поговорить со Стратмором. Сьюзан осторожно приоткрыла дверь и посмотрела на глянцевую, почти зеркальную стену шифровалки. Узнать, следит ли за ней Хейл, было невозможно. Нужно быстро пройти в кабинет Стратмора, но, конечно, не чересчур быстро: Хейл не должен ничего заподозрить. Она уже была готова распахнуть дверь, как вдруг до нее донеслись какие-то звуки.
