After having one child with Down syndrome what is the likelihood of having another child with Down syndrome?
After having one child with Down Syndrome, the likelihood of having another is about one percent. If the first child's Down Syndrome is due to translocation trisomy 21, the likelihood of another Down Syndrome child increases. As far as researchers know at this point, Down Syndrome is not attributed to the parents' behavior prior and/or during pregnancy or any environmental factors. The incidence of Down Syndrome does rise if the mother is older than 35, but it does not account for a large number of Down Syndrome children. Since more women are having children at ages younger than 35, then number of babies born with the syndrome is higher in younger age groups.
No. Parents who have a child with Down syndrome do not have an increased chance in having another child with Down syndrome. Everyone has the same chance of having a child with Down syndrome, 1%.
How does the age of the mother affect the likelihood of her giving birth to a baby with Down syndrome?
See the Related link for a table that lists a woman's age in conjunction with the statistical likelihood of her giving birth to a baby with Down syndrome. Our users comment: I believe I read that, at my age (32), I have 1:750 chance of having a child with Down syndrome. I was one of those 750 women... the likelihood increases as the mother ages, especially after age 30. (See the Related question on the… Read More
That depends. Men with Down syndrome have been shown to be sterile, while women with Down syndrome are capable of carrying a child, with 50% likelihood that the child will be born with Down syndrome.
If joe has the marfan syndrome and has a child some day what are the probaliblities that his chaild will have marfan?
There is a 100% probability of his child having Marfan's syndrome. The syndrome is carried by the FBN1 gene, and is dominant so there is no way to avoid having the disease. However the severity of it may vary from mild to severe, so his child may suffer from a mild form of the syndrome.
A child with Asperger's Syndrome can be a child with a high IQ. People with Asperger's Syndrome typically have average to high IQs.
Yes. Having children over the age of 35 can increase the chance of Down Syndrome.
For the United States, estimated as the fraction of people in the population with the syndrome, ~1/5500.
The likelihood of an individual with down syndrome to conceive a child is extremely rare. There is infertility among both males and females with Down syndrome; males are usually unable to father children, while females demonstrate significantly lower rates of conception relative to unaffected individuals. Women with DS are less fertile and often have difficulties with miscarriage, premature birth and difficult labor. Without implantation genetic diagnosis. approximately half of the offspring of someone with Down… Read More
I have two brothers have morquio syndrome what will the chance of his kids to have morquios syndrome if gets marry?
It depends if he gets marry to a female suffering from morquio syndrome then in this case each child will have 50% chance of having morquio the other side if he marries with normal female then non of his child will suffer from morquio syndrome, but there will be 25% chance that the child carry morquio syndrome gene.
What are the chances that a pregnant woman with Marfan syndrome will pass the condition on to her child?
A pregnant woman with Marfan should also receive genetic counseling regarding the 50% risk of having a child with the syndrome.
If your boyfriend has tourettes syndrome in his family but he doesnt have it or show signs of it what are the chances your kids will?
I'd say about one in 4. Your boyfriend probably has a recessive gene for it. I assume you don't have a family history of it, and you probably don't have a gene for Tourettes. So if you do a Punnett square, the likelihood of having a child with Tourettes is about one in four.
Depends on the grandparents and their parents.
Impossible to speculate. Anything having to do with child enticement is unlikely to be viewed favorably for a lenient sentence.
Response: There is a genetic component to Asperger's Syndrome. If you have a blood relative with autism or Asperger's Syndrome, you are more likely than average to have a child with autism or Asperger's Syndrome, but it does not mean that you will. If both parents have autism or Asperger's Syndrome, there is an even greater likelihood that they will have children with autism or Asperger's Syndrome, but it does not mean that all or… Read More
When she was a child, Temple Grandin was diagnosed as having autism. If she were being diagnosed today, it would probably be labeled Asperger's Syndrome.
A hereditary diseases is one that is passed on to a child by its parent's genes. Some examples include: Cystic Fibrosis Haemophilia Thalassemia Huntingdon's Chorea Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Turner Syndrome Kleinefelter Syndrome Porphyria There are many more, and some are more serious and some are less serious. If a couple has a child with a genetic disease, it is advisable for them to seek Genetic Counselling before having another child.
This with Down syndrome can indeed have children without it. However, the chance of having a child with Downs is increase because of the parent being a carrier.
Well, whenever a female reaches the age above 30-35, her eggs are older. If you get prego, the risk of your child having down syndrome increases.
Once you start getting into the late-40's, having a child can be risky. Your child will have a higher chance of having genetic diseases such as Down Syndrome and Autism. It is still possible to have a child, it's just very risky.
Does pathological lying evidenced in a child with Asperger's Syndrome point to another underlying mental disorder?
Most people with Asperger's Syndrome are too honest for their own good. Pathological lying is another problem altogether.
Middle Child Syndrome...consisting of a range of personality traits as a result of having older and younger siblings.
No. Alkaseltzer contains aspirin which we generally do not give to children for fear of Reye Syndrome ( a severe neurologic syndrome that happenes when you give kids with certain viral infections aspirin). If the child is having headaches a better choice would be Tylenol or Motrin. If the child is having upset stomach a better choice would be Maalox.
Women with DS are less fertile and often have difficulties with miscarriage, premature birth, and difficult labor. Without preimplantation genetic diagnosis, approximately half of the offspring of someone with Down syndrome also have the syndrome themselves
She is at risk of having a down syndrome child or maybe C/S.
Marfan.org is the best one to start with, if you're looking for something more worldwide and you have questions locally, marfanworld.org is another site to check out, but the prior one has a TON of information :-) Happy Hunting!
It is highly unlikely.
In 99% of the cases of PWS the chromosome deletion is sporadic so it is random with no apparent cause. It does not run in the family. The chance of having a second child with PWS is less than 1%.
A child born to a parent who has DS has a 50% chance of also having an extra 21st chromosome. The genetics of the other parent will be equally significant. People with Down syndrome experience 'normal' sexuality and have equal rights under the law to be sexually active and to become parents.
Bassen-Kornzweig syndrome is inherited as an autosomal recessive disorder, which means that parents of affected individuals are themselves unaffected carriers, and that they have a 25% risk of having an affected child.
Experts recommend genetic counseling for persons with a family history of Down syndrome who wish to have a baby. A woman's risk of having a child with Down syndrome increases as she gets older. The risk is significantly higher among women age 35 and older. Couples who already have a baby with Down syndrome have an increased risk of having another baby with the condition. Tests such as nuchal translucency ultrasound, amniocentesis, or chorionic villus… Read More
No, because two males cannot have a child
If a women with Down syndrome is pregnant what would be the negatives and the positives during the pregnancy?
A pregnancy with Down Syndrome would be the same as any other pregnancy. But, there's a chance that if the mother finds out that her child has Down Syndrome by having some testing done, she might become depressed.
No. That responsibility came first. Having more children does not cancel his responsibility to his first child. He will need to decide how he can afford to have another child. You may need to keep working. No. That responsibility came first. Having more children does not cancel his responsibility to his first child.

Yes. I am a victim of BCS (Battered Child Syndrome)
Marfan syndrome has been around since Ernesto and Shampoo Money started dating. They had a child who had a child who had a child who had a cousin who had a cousin and that cousin had a child and the child had a friend who knew a guy who knew a guy that had marfans syndrome.
What are the chances of having a child with Asperger's Syndrome when your husband has a brother that has it?
If a parent has AS the odds of offspring having AS is estimated at 80%. If the husband does not exhibit AS traits than the odds are reduced greatly but still possible as AS is genetic.
As of March 2010, Stephanie McMahon is not expecting another child.
i really dont know. the parents can be normal even if the child has rett syndrome. rett syndrome is caused by a mutation.
there are 26 chromosomes from each parent that makes up a child. when having Turner's Syndrome the girl only haves 25 from her mother.
Only if that is God's will.
The parents of a child who has Down syndrome each have the normal amount of chromosomes. The parents have 46, the child has 47.
My young child has down syndrome(not really).
Yes, it is possible but it is very unlikely. If you had two parents with Down Syndrome, you would have an 80% chance that your child would have Down Syndrome. [In the UK, Down Syndrome is known as Down's Syndrome.]
That would mean that the mother is the one with Down syndrome, since men with Down syndrome are sterile. There is a 50% chance that the child will have Down syndrome and 50% chance that child will be born without.
approximately half of the offspring of someone with Down syndrome also have the syndrome themselves
The following numbers are approximations since different studies have found slightly different results. The chance of having one child with autism might be as high as 1 in 100. After having one child with autism, the chance of having a second child with autism is 1 in 20. After having two children with autism, the chance of having a third child with autism is 1 in 3.
Age. As you grow older, the chance of you having a baby with a chromosomal abnormality increases, though it can happen to anyone.
No Marie does not have a child with down syndrome. It was mistaken that she did because one of her children is crossed eyed.
Asperger Syndrome kids are more likely to be harmed by their classmates than to cause them any harm, since most AS kids make very attractive targets for bullying. Bullied kids, on rare occasions, may retaliate against their classmates. Also, Asperger Syndrome makes a kid more prone to getting overwhelmed or panicking in reaction to certain situations (eg change in routine) and this can cause a tantrum, which may include aggressive behavior (this is usually not… Read More
A mother cannot pass Steven's Johnson syndrome to her child during labor. Though the medication she is taking can be passed on to her child, and certain medications can cause Steven's Johnson syndrome.
