Genetic Diagnosis Laboratory
In our center, which is aware of the importance of single gene diseases in hereditary diseases, the diagnosis of many genetic diseases can be made.
Molecular genetics determines the mechanisms underlying many diseases and thus develops methods for the diagnosis and treatment.
Determining genetic diseases is vital for creating the necessary strategies for individuals to have healthy children by providing preventive medicine.
Childhood Age Group Diagnoses
- Mentally and physically disabled children who attend special education and rehabilitation centers or are integration students
- Children diagnosed with autism or pervasive developmental disorders with learning disabilities, behavioral disorders, hyperactivity, attention deficit, social communication and language development retardation
- Dysmorphic children with serious problems like mental retardation, epilepsy, growth-development retardation and spasticity
- Children diagnosed with the syndrome (such as Down syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome, West Syndrome, Rett Syndrome...)
- Children with brain abnormalities (such as microcephaly, lysencephaly, hydrocephalus...)
- Children with problems of internal organs (such as congenital heart diseases...)
- Children with obvious structural defects (such as cleft palate-lip or hand anomalies...)
- Children with short stature and diseases of the skeletal system.
- Children with muscle diseases such as muscular dystrophy
- Children with hearing and vision loss
- Children with impaired sexual development
Diagnoses of the Adult Age Group
- Individuals with diseases that are considered to be in the childhood age group, but have not been diagnosed until the adult age group,
- Couples with a history of recurrent miscarriage or stillbirth,
- Expectant mothers and fathers who have applied for IVF treatment due to infertility,
- Families in which the same disease occurs in more than one person in a family (Early onset diabetes, cancer, infant loss of unknown cause, etc.)
- Individuals at risk of transmitting the genetic disease that they have or carry to subsequent generations
- Those who want to get information about genetic diseases that can be caused by inbreeding
- Individuals in families where cancers such as breast, ovarian and intestinal cancers are common.
