What is it about?

Submicroscopic chromosomal abnormalities should be accessed when the fetus was found to be with increased NT and normal karyotype. It is therefore important to inform parents in a professional prenatal counseling setting regarding the potential advantages of CMA.

Why is it important?

We recommend performing CMA to detect submicroscopic chromosomal abnormalities when the kayotype is normal, as the information derived can provide additional clinically relevant information .


Informing parents about CMA in a detailed fashion and in a professional prenatal counseling setting remains very important. Such communication will assist patients understanding the implications of the test ,and will able them to decide upon the appropriate reproductive options ; providing benefit to both our patients and their families.
