When is Karyotyping recommended?
Karyotyping is recommended to check if there is any chromosomal abnormalities, whether it is structural or numerical.
There are many situations in which a karyotype may be recommended by your physician. These might include:
- Infants or children who have medical conditions which suggest a chromosomal abnormality that has not yet been diagnosed.
- Adults who have symptoms suggestive of a chromosomal abnormality (for example, men with Klinefelter’s disease may go undiagnosed until puberty or adulthood.) Some of the mosaic trisomy disorders may also go undiagnosed.
- Infertility – A genetic karyotype may be done for infertility. As noted above, some chromosomal abnormalities may go undiagnosed until adulthood. A woman with Turner syndrome or a man with one of the variants of Klinefelter’s may not be aware of the condition until they are coping with infertility.
- Prenatal testing – In some cases, such as translocation Down syndrome, the condition may be hereditary and parents may be tested if a child has been born with a Down syndrome. (It’s important to note that most of the time Down syndrome is not a hereditary disorder but rather a chance mutation.)
- Stillbirth – A karyotype is often done as part of the testing following a stillbirth.
- Frequent miscarriages – A parental karyotype is done between both partners, recurrent miscarriages may give clues as to the reasons for these devastating recurring losses. It’s thought that chromosomal abnormalities, such as trisomy 16 are the cause of almost least 50 percent of miscarriages.
- Leukemia – Karyotype testing may also be done to help diagnose leukemias, for example, by looking for the Philadelphia chromosome or chromosome 22 found in some people with chronic myelogenous leukemia or acute lymphocytic leukemia.
