What is Mosaic
Down Syndrome?
What are the
Cure or no Cure ?
Mosaic Down syndrome
Mosaic Down syndrome is not a disease, It's
not a cold it's a birth defect. It's like when
you're born with an extra finger or cleft palette.
Mosaic Down Syndrome, also known as trisomy 21, is a chromosomal condition caused by the presence of all or part of a third copy of chromosome. It's the most common chromosome abnormality in humans.
There are not may symptoms to mosaic down syndrome, But there are a couple. For example: if a baby is born you can tell by the lines on the hand are completely different almond shaped eyes, brush field spots in the irris' (white flecks) flat nose bridge, shallow pallet, large tongue, ears are set a bit lower on the head, shorter in stature, shorter long bones in the arms and legs, simian crease on the palm of the hand, shorter fingers, possible congenital heart defects, intestinal blockages; flat feet, sandal toe (large gap between big toe and the next), lower IQ developmental delays.
There are no cures for mosaic
down syndrome but as they get
older their IQ develops more and
more eventually most of the people with mosaic down syndrome get normal jobs just like you or me. But sadly there are no cures and you
can not grow out of it, it is all ages.

Thank You!!!!
Here's a video :)
According to the NDSS and the National Association for Down Syndrome (NADS), there is no connection between any type of Down syndrome and parents' activities before or during pregnancy. It is important to know that nothing the mother does during pregnancy could cause Down syndrome. But, we do know that the chance of having a baby with Down syndrome increases with maternal age, and with teenage pregnancies. Since many couples are postponing pregnancy until later in life, the incidence of Down syndrome conceptions may increase. So, genetic counseling for parents might become more important.
Hello, today i'm going to talk to you about
Mosaic Down Syndrome. I'm going to tell
you about the symptoms, what causes it, what
it is & if there are any cures or things to control
it. I hope you like it. :)
