I don't post much here at MDC but am having trouble finding info on this & thought someone here might know something....
My 6 y/o cousin apparently has a trisomy (or perhaps another issue) within chromosome 12. She's severely delayed, can walk somewhat but has no speech (can grunt and make other sounds though) and has various other challenges. Her facial features are pretty unusual. Her future health is apparently an unknown.
I say 'apparently' a lot because her parents are tricky to glean info from, they're happy to talk about their daughter but don't understand or take in much of what their doctors/carers have told them. My uncle is a little slow, and his partner has a known chromosome condition of some sort. She's lost a baby before due to it, and actually had genetic testing before her daughter's birth that was read incorrectly (ie, everything's normal when it wasn't).
Does anyone know any kids with a chromosome 12 issue? I just can't help but wonder what the future holds for this little girl.
