Stillbirth Fetal Karyotype
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
3 early MCs no live birth. 32yrs. All tests normal autoimmune, antiphosopolipid, hormonal, karyotyping. Turner's in 1 fetus. Should we try again & how?
Yes: Don't give up, get followed by infertility/hi risk obstetrics doctor, at one point a medical geneticist input might be needed. For genetic / chromosomal disorders PIGD, Pre- Implantation Genetic Diagnosis can be resorted to so as not implant an embryo with a known major genetic/chromosomal disease, good luck ...Read more
Several.: Obstetric complications (abruption, multiple gestation, preterm birth - 29%), placental disease and fetal growth restriction (fgr - 24%), fetal genetic/structural abnormalities (14%), maternal/fetal infection (13%), umbilical cord abnormalities (10%), hypertensive disorders (9%), other maternal medical conditions (8%). One third/fourth of cases remain undiagnosed/idiopathic. @34 weeks fgr likely. ...Read more
I am 18 weeks. Fetus has not stopped excessively moving for over a week. It seems to get worse when I move positions. Can this result in stillbirth?
Baby moving...: After 17 weeks of pregnancy it is usually when you become aware of your baby moving inside of you. They can move a lot and it is not a sign of miscarriage or stillbirth. The opposite is true. Once you start feeling the baby moving, if it stops moving that is a dangerous sign. If you experience vaginal bleeding, severe pain, then those are also red flags and you should see OB. ...Read more

If parents' karyotyping is normal, what are the chances for recurrent early miscarriages due to chromosomal problems in fetus? Pls answer as clearly
Ans: There is always a possibility of a mutation. This cannot be predicted. However just because on the outside you are normal does not mean you do not carry a recessive gene. You and your partner can have gene mapping. But again remember thecwayvthe chromosomes line up is chance. But if you have abnormal genes you can put a percentage on the chance of that gene showing up. Again all a toss of the coin ...Read more

3 miscarriages. Fetal karyotyping normal. D&c revealed uterine septum, but have healthy 7 y/0. What tests should i/we have next? $ is an issue.
Depends on you: To some extent you already have a good deal of information.You know that you can carry a baby to a healthy delivery. You also know you have a structural uterine defect that may cause a miscarriage. I'm not aware if they could reduce or remove your septum, or if such surgery would help.That may be a reasonable thing to discuss with your doc. ...Read more
3 MCs no live birth. 2 MCs turner's & trisomy14 in fetus. Parents karyotyping normal. What other genetic tests shld be done. Risk of abnormal child ?
5 months pregnant. On amniotic fluid sample test, "fetal karyotype was found to be 47, ##, +21 indicating down syndrome.". Should i go for abortion?
Personal decision: Yes, your child has down's syndrome. I have no idea how those children are treated in india. However, they are the most loving, kind people i care for. They have the capacity for love and joy unlike any of my other patients. Will the child require extra care and have different needs - absolutely. Only you can decide if you have the capacity to provide this and continue the pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Kick Counting: Fetal movement is reassuring. Babies that are in trouble stop moving, usually awhile before they are at risk of stillbirth. Monitoring fetal movement is a way to make sure that baby is doing well without hooking you up to a fetal monitor. If your monitoring indicates that baby isn't moving enough, you can go to the hospital for electronic fetal monitoring. Best wishes! ...Read more
See below: Karyotyping is a test to examine chromosomes in a sample of cells, which can help identify genetic problems as the cause of a disorder or disease. This test can: •count the number of chromosomes •look for structural changes in chromosomes the test can be performed on almost any tissue, including: •amniotic fluid •blood •bone marrow •placenta. ...Read more
One sample at a time: A blood sample is spun down and the white cells are separated into at least 3 tissue culture media sets. An amnio sample is spun down, the cells resuspended and divided into three tissue culture sets. Of primary importance: only one sample is ever set up at a time. No other sample is near another until the cultures have been completely set up and labeled. That prevents mixing up two babies by mistake ...Read more

My daughter was diagnosed with t cell all last year.Her karyotyping :abnormality in t(11;14)(p13;q11.2). Is there a targetted therapy for lmo2 issues?
Unfortunately, No: The t(11;14)(p11, q13.2) translocation places the lmo2 gene under the control of the t-cell receptor promoter, driving lmo2 protein expression. Lmo2 regulates the functions of transcription factors that regulate cell fate specification like tal1 (itself frequently mutated in t-all) e2a and gata1. Essentially it acts as a scaffold for assembling a multi-protein complex that control gee expression. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
