I have recently been told that the condition known as Cri-du-chat
has been known to turn up in my family.  All I 'know' about this
is that is a genetic defect, affecting the fifth pair of 
chromsomes; that it strikes some female offspring and that it is
generally fatal.
I would appreciate any information you could provide.
Do you know of any newsgroup devoted to genetics? or WWW address?
Thankyou so much for your help.
Robert Wilson
