DIAGNOSE YOUR BABY :


CARDIOLOGY : 
THE SYNDROME WHICH INCLUDES CHILDHOOD ONSET OF DILATED CARDIOMYOPAHTY, NEUTROPENIA GROWTH RETARDATION WHICH IS RELATED TO MUTATIONS IN TAFAZZIN IS :

A. Turner's Syndrome
B. Kearns-Sayre Syndrome
C. Barth's Syndrome
D. MELAS Syndrome


ANS IS C : BARTH'S SYNDROME
Barth syndrome (BTHS) is an X-linked genetic condition, usually transmitted from mother to son (although there is a relatively high incidence of new mutations in Barth syndrome and one confirmed case report of a female Barth syndrome patient). A mother who is a carrier of a Barth syndrome mutation (the gene is named tafazzin — also called TAZ or G4.5) shows no signs or symptoms of this disorder herself, probably due to skewed X-chromosome inactivation.
There is a 50% chance that a boy born to a female carrier will have Barth syndrome, whereas girls born to a carrier have a 50% risk of being carriers themselves. All daughters of a male with Barth syndrome will be carriers, however no sons will be affected. Because there are proven non-carrier mothers, all mothers of Barth syndrome children should be tested in order to define the genetic risk in each family.
Any male child related through the female line to a Barth syndrome individual should be tested for the disorder, as there can be great variation in phenotype even among affected siblings.
