  • The practice of medicine has a long tradition of making a diagnosis by building up a composite picture of the symptoms and their history, a clinical examination and specialist investigations. A diagnosis enables the course of the disease to be predicted and the appropriate treatment used.However, scientific developments in genetics, by allowing us to detect specific abnormalities in chromosomes and in individual genes, are beginning to throw light on the mechanisms involved at a biochemical and molecular level.

  • This book provides recent developments and advances in research on Down syndrome. It covers a wide range of topics, including investigations on prenatal diagnosis and screening, genetic counseling, neoplastic disease, congenital heart disease, dentistry and oral health, obesity, molecular genetics and neurological disorders in Down syn‐ drome. It is also a resource for scientists and research workers who wish to learn more about Down syndrome. To date, well over one hundred chromosome syndromes have been reported. Whilst on an individual basis many of these are...

  • When the first edition of Genetic Screening and Counseling was published in 2002,1 the draft of the human genome had just been declared sequenced.2 Since then, the sequence has become nearly finalized, and the focus is turning to translation of this information to the bedside. The genomics era is increasingly bearing fruit and promises a paradigm shift in research and medical practice. To the clinician, counseling and genetic diagnoses will become an increasing part of daily practice. The generalist obstetrician/gynecologist is included....

  • Since the first edition of this book in 1989 there have been enormous changes in clinical genetics, reflecting the knowledge generated from the tremendous advances in molecular biology, culminating in the publication of the first draft of the human genome sequence in 2001, and the dissemination of information via the internet. The principles of genetic assessment and the aims of genetic counselling have not changed, but the classification of genetic disease and the practice of clinical genetics has been significantly altered by this new knowledge....

  • Preventive measures and therapeutic interventions are not restricted to metabolic disorders. Identification of familial forms of long QT syndrome, associated with ventricular arrhythmias, allows early electrocardiographic testing and the use of prophylactic antiarrhythmic therapy, overdrive pacemakers, or defibrillators (Chap. 226). Individuals with familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy can be screened by ultrasound, treated with beta blockers or other drugs, and counseled about the importance of avoiding strenuous exercise and dehydration (Chap. 231).

  • Neither randomized clinical trials nor meta- analysis are available and evidence is based on a number of retrospective studies with multivariate for mortality risk factors or data from national cancer registries (Gilliland et al., 1997; Hundahl et al., 1998). Unfortunately, very remarkable differences in patient’s selection, staging systems, and clinical management affect the available studies. In particular, radioiodine treatment is not routinely carried out in a standard manner and outcome results of different studies are thus not comparable (Sciuto et al., 2009).

  • Research indicates that in most facilities the identification of HIV infection among women in prevention of vertical transmission programs is used as an entry point to recommend HIV testing and counselling to other family members. However, all respondents noted that the number of sexual partners who make use of these services is still extremely low.

  • The diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis in patients with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is complicated by the increased presence of sputum smear negative tuberculosis. Diagnosis of smear negative pulmonary tuberculosis is made by an algorithm recommended by the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Programme that uses symptoms, signs and laboratory results. The objective of this study is to determine the sensitivity and specificity of the tuberculosis treatment algorithm used for the diagnosis of sputum smear negative pulmonary tuberculosis.

  • The field of medical genetics has traditionally focused on chromosomal abnormalities (Chap. 63) and Mendelian disorders (Chap. 62). However, there is genetic susceptibility to many common adult-onset diseases, including atherosclerosis, cardiac disorders, asthma, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes mellitus, macular degeneration, Alzheimer's disease, psychiatric disorders, and many forms of cancer.

  • Prenatal diagnosis, traditionally used as a synonymous for invasive fetal testing and evaluation of chromosomal constellation, presently encompasses many other issues like pedigree analyses, fetal risk assessment, population screening, genetic counseling and fetal diagnostic testing as well. Ultrasound guided chorionic villus samling (CVS), amniocentesis and, to a lesser extent, fetal blood sampling are used routinely in fetal medicine units. Other fetal tissue biopsies such as skin, liver and muscle biopsy are used only rarely.

  • Advocates worldwide recognize the need to address the political and social context in which young people make decisions about sex and reproduction. Globally, commitment to meeting YRH needs has never been higher. International conferences and agreements such as the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child, the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), the U.N. World Program of Action for Youth to the Year 2000 and Beyond, and the 2001 U.N.

  • People with MEN1 have a very high risk of developing tumors of 3 glands: the pituitary, parathyroid, and pancreas. About one-third to one-half of people with this condition also develop adrenal adenomas or enlarged adrenal glands. These usually do not cause any symptoms. This syndrome is caused by defects in a gene called MEN1. People who have a family history of MEN1 or pituitary, parathyroid, pancreas, or adrenal cancers should ask their doctor if they might benefit from genetic counseling.

  • DNA mutations that are seen in cancers happen during life rather than having been inherited. These mutations may result from exposure to radiation or carcinogens (cancer- causing chemicals). But most of these mutations happen for no apparent reason. The DNA mutations that cause tumors in people with the genetic syndromes discussed in the previous section have been identified. Overall though, these rarely cause adrenal cortical cancer.

  • If several family members have had colon or endometrial cancer, you might want to think about having genetic counseling to learn about your family’s risk of having hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer (HNPCC). If you (or a close relative) have genetic testing and are found to have a change in one of the genes for HNPCC, you have a high risk of getting endometrial cancer. To find out more about genetic testing, please see our document, Genetic Testing: What You Need to Know. The American Cancer Society recommends that women who have (or may have) HNPCC be offered yearly testing with...

  • Smear positive pulmonary tuberculosis patients were diagnosed using the following criteria as per the RNTCP guidelines: (i) Two or three smears positive for AFB and (ii) One sputum smear positive for AFB with radiographic abnormalities consistent with active pulmonary tuberculosis. Smear negative pulmonary tuberculosis was diagnosed if three sputum smears were negative for AFB but evidence of radiographic abnormalities of active tuberculosis was present after two weeks of antibiotic treatment for routine bacterial infections of the respiratory tract19.
