  • Down Syndrome
    others may experience a host of medical issues that require extra care For example almost half of all children born with DS will have a congenital heart defect Kids with Down syndrome are also at an increased risk of developing pulmonary hypertension a serious condition that can lead to irreversible damage to the lungs All infants with Down syndrome should be evaluated by a pediatric cardiologist Approximately half of all kids with DS also have problems with hearing and vision Hearing loss can be related to fluid buildup in the inner ear or to structural problems of the ear itself Vision problems commonly include strabismus cross eyed near or farsightedness and an increased risk of cataracts Regular evaluations by an otolaryngologist ear nose and throat doctor audiologist and an ophthalmologist are necessary to detect and correct any problems before they affect language and learning skills Other medical conditions that may occur more frequently in kids with DS include thyroid problems intestinal abnormalities seizure disorders respiratory problems obesity an increased susceptibility to infection and a higher risk of childhood leukemia Upper neck abnormalities are sometimes found and should be evaluated by a doctor these can be detected by cervical spine X rays Fortunately many of these conditions are treatable Prenatal Screening and Diagnosis Two types of prenatal tests are used to detect Down syndrome in a fetus screening tests and diagnostic tests Screening tests estimate the risk that a fetus has DS diagnostic tests can tell whether the fetus actually has the condition Screening tests are cost effective and easy to perform But because they can t give a definitive answer as to whether a baby has DS these tests are used to help parents decide whether to have more diagnostic tests Diagnostic tests are about 99 accurate in detecting Down syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities However because they re performed inside the uterus they are associated with a risk of miscarriage and other complications For this reason invasive diagnostic testing previously was generally recommended only for women age 35 or older those with a family history of genetic defects or those who ve had an abnormal result on a screening test However the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology ACOG now recommends that all pregnant women be offered screening with the option for invasive diagnostic testing for Down syndrome regardless of age If you re unsure about which test if any is right for you your doctor or a genetic counselor can help you sort through the pros and cons of each Screening tests include Nuchal translucency testing This test performed between 11 and 14 weeks of pregnancy uses ultrasound to measure the clear space in the folds of tissue behind a developing baby s neck Babies with DS and other chromosomal abnormalities tend to accumulate fluid there making the space appear larger This measurement taken together with the mother s age and the baby s gestational age can be used to calculate the odds that the baby has DS
