Microdeletion 15q11.2

Sebastian's Story

Sebastian was born sleeping as a result of a bone condition called Skeletal Dysplasia (unrelated to Microdeletion 15q11.2). The Microdeletion was discovered through an amniocentesis. We are awaiting DNA tests (blood tests of parents) to find out if either parent is a carrier to this. If one of us is a carrier we are unaffected by the microdeletion but have a 50% chance of passing on to our next baby. It is, however, possible that Sebastian received this microdeletion spontaneously. We were given this link by the Geneticist to find out more about it.
