Trisomy 13: Changing Perspectives.

Macias, Gabriel; Riley, Cheryl.
Neonatal Netw; 35(1): 31-6, 2016.
Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-26842537
The diagnosis of trisomy 13 has been considered incompatible with life. Trisomy 13 is associated with a pattern of congenital anomalies and mental disabilities that make caring for these infants a challenge for both the family and health care professionals. The clinical management of trisomy 13 varies based on the organ systems involved. The current standard of care has been withholding intensive support and providing comfort care. Recent literature suggests there are improved outcomes in infants who receive intensive care at birth. In addition, case reports evaluating older children with trisomy 13 report that, although there are significant intellectual and psychomotor disabilities, these children do meet developmental milestones such as smiling in response to parents, sitting unassisted, and walking with a walker. This case review will include a discussion of the clinical course of an infant born with mosaic trisomy 13 where the parents requested intensive care.
