Underwent chromosomal mapping (karyotype) through G banding technique, cardiology studies, hearing and vision. The results showed 47,XX +21 in all metaphase cells analyzed. Also, the cardiac evaluation revealed no congenital heart disease. Similarly, neonatal hearing screening and ophthalmologic examination were within normal parameters. We conclude that the patient has trisomy 21, no findings of consequences resulting from this chromosome disorder.
