    Default Let's talk Chromsones

    Does anyone have a child with a bit of extra chromosome 2 & 13?
    Anyone know what they are? Effects? Etc?

    Have you just had a child diagnosed with this condition?

    I don't have any experience, but want to suggest you contact http://www.rarechromo.org/html/home.asp. They provide a wealth of information about rare chromosomal disorders.

    It is based in England, but they connect people all over the world.

    They have fact sheets on a number of conditions here:

    Just wanting to learn more, I have no idea about this. Is it diagnosed in utero, post birth? What is it, then a link was posted.

    is that trisomy 2 and trisomy 13? t13 is patau's syndrome and it's pretty rare. t2 I've never heard of but I just googled and it says it can cause forms of cancer??

    neither sounds particularly appealing. Hope you/your kids are ok.

    If it's just a bit then it's a partial trisomy. The symptoms/outcomes etc will depend on what the extra bit is (which genes it contains).
