Keywords:chromosomal diseases, cytogenetic diagnostics, postnatal karyotyping
Chromosomal diseases are serious diseases that are usually accompanied by a disability of patients. Medical and genetic counseling involves a complex of preventive measures to prophylaxis the birth of such patients in families. Cytogenetic diagnosis is one of the diagnostic type of these diseases – this is a complex of traditional karyotyping techniques and different FISH technics.
