Neonatal Genetic Disorders

There are chances that a baby is born with genetic disorders. These are the direct result of a mutation in one gene. There are three types of genetic disorders: Single-gene disorders, where a mutation affects one gene; Chromosomal disorders, where chromosomes (or parts of chromosomes) are missing or changed; Complex disorders, where there are mutations in two or more genes. Examples include Cystic fibrosis, Sickle cell disease, etc.q
