Trisomía 13 - Prevention

Nombres alternativos

Síndrome de Patau


La trisomía 13 se puede diagnosticar antes del nacimiento mediante una amniocentesis con estudios cromosómicos de las células amnióticas.

Los padres de bebés con trisomía 13 causada por translocación deben recibir asesoría genética y someterse a pruebas genéticas, lo cual les puede ayudar a evitar tener otro hijo con la afección.
