This session is one of three sessions that consider the main classes of genetic conditions. Here we cover chromosome anomalies.

This session was reviewed by Khyati Bakhai and last updated in January 2019.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Recognise the types of clinical features that are often associated with changes in the number or structure of chromosomes
  • Interpret a family history/family tree for patterns which might suggest an inherited chromosome anomaly
  • Describe how genetic probability is estimated for chromosome anomalies

The main classes of genetic disorders include single gene, chromosomal and multifactorial conditions as explored in session:Why Does Genetics Matter in Primary Care Practice? (400-0079). This session considers anomalies affecting chromosome number and structure.
