Autosomal trisomies other than Down syndrome are usually spontaneously aborted, so the principal benefit of screening may be avoidance of late fetal death The health consequences of sex aneuploidy are less significant than trisomies, but about half such pregnancies are nevertheless electively aborted when discovered prenatally, 78 Serum. Screening for fetal Down's syndrome first became possible in the late s, when the positive association between maternal age and the prevalence of Down's syndrome at .

Antenatal screening for Down syndrome and other conditions provides a risk estimate for Down syndrome (trisomy 21), trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome), trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome) and some other rare genetic disorders.

A screening test for Down's syndrome, Edwards' syndrome and Patau's syndrome is available between weeks 10 and 14 of pregnancy. It's called the combined test because it combines an ultrasound scan with a blood test. The scan can be carried out at the same time as the pregnancy dating scan.

Down syndrome is the leading cause of prenatal chromosome abnormalities, accounting for53% of all reported chromosome conditions. Testing strategies, guidelines, and screeningoptions have expanded from their conception in the s, and now include such options as anatomicalultrasound, maternal serum screening, and noninvasive prenatal testing.

Down syndrome is by far the most common and best known chromosomal disorder in humans and the most common cause of intellectual disability.

It is primarily caused by trisomy of chromosome 21 (see the image below), which gives rise to multiple systemic complications as part of the syndrome.

Down syndrome (DS) is one of the commonest disorders with huge medical and social cost. DS is associated with number of phenotypes including congenital heart defects, leukemia, Alzeihmer’s disease, Hirschsprung disease etc.

DS individuals are affected by these phenotypes to a variable extent thus understanding the cause of this variation is a key challenge.
