Translocation Down Syndrome

General characteristics of a baby diagnosed with Down Syndrome


How you get it: Down's Syndrome is usually not inherited. The only form of this condition that can be inherited is called Translocation Down's Syndrome. Only about four percent of children that have Down's syndrome have translocation. He or she can pass on the translocation to the child, who will and up having an extra copy of Chromosome 21, which is what Down's Syndrome is.

There are 3 types of Down syndrome Trisomy 21, Translocation, and Mosaicism

Shaney's type trisomy 21 translocation

When translocations are inherited, the mother or father has some rearranged genetic material, but no extra genetic material — this means he or she is a balanced carrier. A balanced carrier has no signs or symptoms of Down syndrome, but he or she can pass the translocation on to children, causing extra genetic material from chromosome 21.
