Dr. Anshuman Singh, Dr. Sharad Agarkhedkar, Dr. Kumar Gaurav
Edward syndrome is a condition of developmental delay and dysmorphology caused due to trisomy 18 disrupting the normal course development, causing the characteristic features of Edward syndrome. The main characteristics of Edward syndrome are: intra- extra uterine growth retardation, mental retardation with typical facial dysmorphism, microcephaly and mid line defects. When only some of the body’s cells have an extra copy of chromosome 18, is called mosaic Edward syndrome and is a very rare form. Here we describe a female baby with mosaic trisomy 18, who had a majority of the main phenotypic feature.
