A Race Against the Clock – Diagnosing Genetic Conditions in Newborns and Children
Newborns and children presenting with life-threatening metabolic, neurologic, gastrointestinal, or urogenital conditions need a fast and precise diagnosis in order to have optimal and efficient further diagnostic and therapeutic progress. Up to one third of all babies and children admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) have a genetic disease. For many of them early identification can make a difference for their immediate and later health.
