What is trisomy 18?
Trisomy 18, also known as Edward's syndrome, is a disorder of human chromosomes, where an extra copy of chromosome 18 is found in the cells. Full trisomy, where the extra chromosome is found in all the cells in the body, is found in 90% of infants with Edwards. The remaining 10% have a partial trisomy, where only part of the extra chromosome is found, or mosaicism, where the additional chromosomal material is only found in some cells of the body.
