>>My brother has been diagnosed with Autism about 15 years ago. And at the
time, I was told I could be a carrier. But, he has also been diagnosed as
possible Fragile-x, Aaskog's, and severe mental retardation. He does have
an inverted insertion of the X chromosome.
Anyway, I am now 3 months pregnant, I was wondering could anyone help me
find out whether I have a chance of having an autistic child. Thanks
You should ask firstly your obstetrician, secondly maybe the doctors
who diagnosed you brother, thirdly a medical geneticist.
Have you (and your parents) been examined cytogenetically
to look fo that inverted insertion of the X chromosome ?
