Description

Genetic disorders often have well-recognized characteristics. However, some conditions will have less noticeable features. Early recognition of dysmorphic features in infants promotes appropriate, targeted, genetic testing which can lead to a timely diagnosis. Early detection of genetic conditions allows for appropriate and effective management. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe how to assess for as well as recognize dysmorphic features.
  • Discuss when specialist consultations and testing may be warranted for the dysmorphic infant.
  • Explain when genetic testing is warranted based on dysmorphc features.
