Genetics in Pediatrics

According to global pediatric healthcare report, genetic disorders in children lead to 50% of child mortality and 25% of admissions in pediatric nursing homes. Many a time, it is not possible to detect at an early stage as the manifestations take place at a later stage. It is generally suggested to take three generation pedigree analysis to confirm the prevalence of the genetic disorder in the new-born.  X-linked recessive traits can be analyzed by the dominance of affected males in the family. Similarly, chromosomal errors are evident with developmental defects or dysmorphic manifestations. Problems in secondary sexual characteristics are also of genetic origin. According to the survey, it has been noticed that most of the childhood deaths are attributed to genetic disorders rather than non-genetic factors. Geneticists are therefore concentrating more on the cause and onset. In fact, they are keeping track of the environmental factors as well as the combined factors that might lead to the disease. Thus, prenatal genetic counselling or karyotyping is necessary for the continuation of the healthy legacy of family.
