(Edwards syndrome, trisomy E)

Trisomy 18 is caused by an extra chromosome 18 and consists of a mental disability, low birth size and many congenital anomalies, u. a. a pronounced microcephaly, heart defects, a protruding skull base, low-faceted malformed ears and a typical fed kniffenes face.

Trisomy 18 occurs in 1 in front of 6,000 live births, a spontaneous departure is frequent. More than 95% of affected children have a complete trisomy 18. The extra chromosome comes almost exclusively from the maternal side. The risk is increased for mothers with age. The ratio of female: male is 3: 1.

The extra chromosome comes almost exclusively from the maternal side. The risk is increased for mothers with age. The ratio of female: male is 3: 1. Symptoms and complaints in the pränateln history are weak fetal movement, polyhydramnios, a small placenta and a single umbilical artery to find. The newborn baby is small for his gestational age, shows a marked hypoplasia of skeletal muscle and subcutaneous fat and is hypotonic. His cry is weak and attenuated the response to tones. The supra-orbital arches are hypoplastic, the palpebral short, the mouth and cheeks small. All together gives the face a narrowed impression. Frequently observed microcephaly, a protruding back of the head, low-faceted malformed ears and a truncated sternum. Usually you will find a balled fist with the index finger, struck on the 3rd and 4th finger. The distal groove on 5 fingers missing. The minutiae of the Fingerendgliedern is flachbogig. Redundant skin folds, especially on the neck, are common. The fingernails are hypoplastic, the big toe is shortened and often flexed dorsally. Club feet and rocking chair feet are commonly seen. Severe congenital heart disease (eg. As patent ductus arteriosus and ventricular septal defects), malformations of the lungs, diaphragm, abdomen, kidneys and ureters are common. Boys may have an undescended testicle. Common symptoms include Muskelhernien, separation of the rectus muscles of the abdomen or both.
