All you moms and dads out there, I need your help. I have recently had a baby with anencephaly and the doctors refused to test him for microduplication 22q11.2. It would help my research greatly if anyone else could come forward and tell me if anyone has had a child with anencephaly. Our research is incomplete of our disorder. And with what is written so far, specialists claim that duplication is similar in many ways to deletion of our chromosome in question. Well not long ago i looked up the deletion and anencephaly did show up in a certain genetics specialists research. Please help me find answers. It may benefit our childrens health one day.

No anencephaly here however my son had a large benigne brain tumor at 6months of age. It was removed but has had lasting affects in terms or behavior and speech issues.

Ok. Well if you can pass on the word, id appreciate it. Im also looking into cephalic disorders and neural tube defects. Even microcephaly is a cephalic disorder that i have and is caused by the duplication.
