Abstract:

Throughout pregnancy, parents begin dreaming of their perfect, healthy baby. What happens when their dreams appear to be shattered by an infant that has obvious dysmorphic features and may have long-term problems? This session will provide an overview of common genetic terms, discussion of classifications of congenital anomalies with common findings, discussion of cytogenetic evaluation, and family communication.
