Angelman syndrome is a genetic disorder, as is Down syndrome. But they are not the same. Angelman Syndrome involves a deletion of Chromosome 15, whereas people with Down syndrome have an extra copy of Chromosome 21.
Down Syndrome and Turner Syndrome are two completely different places. Even though this is not how i found out, the clue is in Down Syndrome and Turner Syndrome.

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%.
Presumably the same reason you have internet troll syndrome.
Down syndrome and Marfan syndrome are different disorders with different symptoms. For instance, Down syndrome is associated with short stature, and Marfan syndrome with tall stature.
No. Both are trisomies (when someone has three of a certain type of chromosome instead of two), but Klinefelter's is with XXY and Down syndrome is a trisomy of chromosome 21.
The rate of incidence of males and females with Down syndrome is the same. Both sexes are affected equally.
The number is the same everywhere.
It is found in all places the same.
approximately half of the offspring of someone with Down syndrome also have the syndrome themselves
By the nature of Down syndrome, which is a mutation of an extra (3rd) chromosome, more than one type of the same autologous gene is active: In homeostasis, only one type of each gene is active, but as the third chromosome does not get turned off in Down syndrome, two of the same type of gene are active.
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.
The same way any other person is 'made' - by their parents having intercourse ! Down Syndrome is a genetic condition inherited from one or both parents.
No, there is not. Down syndrome is unique in its characteristics and scientific identification. 2nd Answer: Sort of . . . there are other 'mistakes' that occur for the same reason that Down syndrome occurs, and many of them are named. The thing is, though, that the body has such a high range of tolerance of all its hormones, enzymes, and so forth, that these other 'mistakes' never show up to be recognized. Down syndrome… Read More
No, but some downs children also have autism.
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.
Most cases of down syndrome are not inherited. Translocation Down syndrome can be inherited.
No, you cannot. Down syndrome is a syndrome that is with you from birth.
there is no cure for down syndrome. people with down syndrome are not mental. they look the same and act the same. its a genetic disorder. and they have a learning disorder with heart defects. they can be severeand normally ownly live to about 55 years old but is a disorder but there not mental. It is a extra hormone on slot 21 on your hormone sheet.
There are the same number in Downs as in others.
no you people must have down syndrome.
Unless the brother has translocation DS (not likely), then the risk of his siblings having a baby of their own with DS are the same as any other person their age.
Treat them the same as everyone else. Parents that have children with mental retardation should seek help to raise these children. http://www.parents.com/health/down-syndrome/down-syndrome-resources/
Down syndrome IS the diagnosis.
Down Syndrome Is In Your Brain.
Down Syndrome is an inherited condition. You cannot "get" Down Syndrome, it isn't contagious. A person is born with it.
Down Syndrome is caused by extra genetic material on Chromosome 21. About half of the children of people who have Down Syndrome are born with Down Syndrome themselves. See the Related Links below to view an article about the genetics of Down Syndrome.
No. Parents of Down Syndrome typically are normal genetically and there is no test for parents to determine the possibility of a Down Syndrome offspring. There are no known external factors that are known to contribute to Down Syndrome. It is possible to test for Down Syndrome in the fetus.
According to the Canadian Down Syndrome Society there are approx 35,000 Canadians with Down Syndrome.
Well Down Syndrome is sometimes called Up Syndrome because most kids with Down Syndrome are very happy. Trisomy 21
It depends on how bad the down syndrome is
No, Down Syndrome is permanent.
Down syndrome Both spellings are correct and acceptable. And "syndrome" is sometimes uppercase and sometimes lowercase. On Answers.com, we choose the spelling "Down syndrome."
No, because two males cannot have a child
Unless she has translocation (inherited) Down syndrome than No, she more than likely Won't.
None. Noone SUFFERS from Down syndrome. Now about 250,000 people HAVE Down syndrome in the U.S.
Sometimes Down Syndrome is called Up Syndrome because alot of children with Down Syndrome are happy all the time.
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.]
It is very unlikely that two people with Down Syndrome are able to conceive. Most males with Down Syndrome are infertile, with only 3 recorded instances of a down syndrome father being able to conceive. Most females with Down Syndrome have both conception and birthing problems, leading to a high miscarriage rates for those who are able to conceive. Females with down syndrome have much lower fertility rates.
is down syndrome acquired genetic disease
No, Barbara Walters does not have Down syndrome.
down syndrome is not an emptional disorder
The same as all of the other cells.
50% of females with Down syndrome are able to conceive children, while males with Down syndrome are usually sterile.
Down syndrome cannot be spread from one person to another; it is not contagious. Down syndrome happens when chromosome 21 is present.
Yes, children with Down syndrome can get adopted. I have two sisters, both have Down Syndrome, and both were adopted. They are amazing :)
Down syndrome is not caused by a bacterial infection therefore the answer to your question is no. Down syndrome is caused by an extra chromosome in the cell nucleus.
Down Syndrome people are usually smaller than the average person and im sure it would be possible for a dwarf down syndrome person such as two dwarf people who have a down syndrome child
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.
