2 early MCs, heartbeat seen in 2nd case, no live birth, turner's synd in fetus 2nd case, karyotyping & antiphosopolipid normal. Way fwd? More tests?

Try again: Abnormal chromosome patterns are seen in many of the MC's studied, so this would not be unexpected. If both you and spouse have been karyotyped & normal, you are not carrying a translocation that would doom you both to expect MC's.Consult the clinical genetics department at Toronto Children's if you have not already and see if their is anything more they recommend. ...Read more

Daughters suspected of having turner's syndrome. Apart from no breasts and missing periods no other symptoms. Is this possible? Genetic tests done.

Daughters suspected of having turner's syndrome. Apart from no breasts and missing periods no other symptoms. Is this possible? Genetic tests done.

Yes: There is wide variation in the presentation of turner syndrome. Turner syndrome is caused by the absence of one x chromosome. Sometimes, a person can have mosaicism, which means that the x chromosome is only missing from some chromosomes, not all. People with mosaicism tend to have more subtle presentations. The answer should come from the karyotype (chromosome analysis.). ...Read more

I got a positive pregnancy test, but I have no symptoms. My last pregnancy was a blighted ovum (no pg symptoms) before that I miscarried from turner's syndrome (had pg symptoms) is this a bo again?

You can't tell: You cannot tell whether or not this is a blighted ovum just based on the presence or absence of pregnancy symptoms. May women will have more symptoms in one healthy pregnancy versus another healthy pregnancy. Your doctor can perform an ultrasound at 6-7 weeks that can confirm whether or not there is a properly developing pregnancy. Good luck! ...Read more

Congrats: Wish you a healthy rest of pregnancy and a healthy baby, genetic testing isn't performed routinely on otherwise healthy newborns, apart from the routine neonatal screening performed where you live. Tandem MS screening is performed in case of suspected metabolic problem, you can ask your pediatrician about whether it is needed?

Lack of chromosome: Normal humans have 22 pairs of regular chromosomes (chms) and one pair of sex chms. At conception you are supposed to get one of each pair from each parent. If one of the sex (X) chms is lost from the egg, the fetus (which can survive the mistake) will be born with 22 pr of regular chms and only one X.The defect occurs in the formation of the egg.

Timing of error: At conception, the embryo begin duplicating the chromosomes (chms) donated by egg & sperm to form the 23 chromosome pairs. If one x chm didn't make it, you will only have a turner pattern (45 chms xo). If a normal xx pattern starts but an x is lost after several divisions the mosaic is created by having one normal 46xx & another 45xo cell lines replicating throughput the body. ...Read more
