Description of Medical ServiceNext generation sequencing of coding regions in clinically affected individuals.
While next generation sequencing has the ability to investigate all genes in the one test, only genes known to cause these syndromes will be analysed. A phenotype-driven list of candidate genes should be prioritised for analysis, followed by a broader scan of all other known genes with clinical evidence indicating possible involvement in the affected individual’s condition.
Description of Medical ConditionChildren (<18 years) with the onset of clinical features/symptoms indicating a syndromic disorder in the first year of life, including a minimum of 2 of the 3 following indications: multiple congenital anomalies and/or dysmorphic facial features and/or moderate to profound cognitive impairment.
