Chromosomes examination using conventional methods, through the recent use of fluorescent molecular probes, has increased sensitivity, detection capacity and reproducibility to identify medium and large structural anomalies in congenital diseases, tumors, and in the management of infertility.
Cytogenetic technologies (karyotype, fluorescence in-situ hybridization, among others) are applicable in cases of newborn patients with physical abnormalities, congenital malformations or those with physical, motor or cognitive development deficiencies, as well as for patients with tumor diseases, especially in examinations for lymphoma and leukemia. It is further applied in the identification of adverse changes of chromosomes, which may be associated to functional or structural issues of a baby conceived by parents with risk factors (over 35 years of age, with occupational exposures to toxic agents, and certain previous diseases).
