Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I will be happy to help you today. I'm sorry you need to question whether or not your son has Down's syndrome. A single sign of nuchal translucency without any other US signs such as femur shortening should not make one suspicious of trisomy 21.
Can you send a picture of your baby? This would help to make a determination. Also, blood tests will confirm or negate your concerns.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
