Feel free to post your comments and compare your viewpoint with other on-line visitors. All (reasonable) comments below are posted to the ETHEX listserv Mr. and Mrs. C come to a genetics clinic for prenatal diagnosis. They have each been tested to determine whether they carry the gene for cystic fibrosis, a hereditary lung disease that causes severe breathing problems. The cystic fibrosis gene is recessive, so a child must inherit a copy from each parent to get the disease. In this case, both Mr. and Mrs. C are carriers for the cystic fibrosis gene. The specific mutations for each parent were identified in earlier tests. Mrs. C, who is pregnant, undergoes prenatal diagnosis to determine if the fetus is affected. DNA analysis indicates that the fetus does have two copies of the cystic fibrosis gene, but one of the mutations it carries is different from that of either Mr. or Mrs. C. That makes it virtually certain that Mr. C is not the baby's father. Should the genetics counselor tell both Mr. and Mrs. C about the test results?

Some have children who were helped by newborn screening, and some have children who have died, or suffered brain damage. For many of the Foundation's volunteers, joy comes from knowing that your child was saved. Many hours of hard work have been done to help children, maybe even yours. Please let us hear from you.
Cystic Fibrosis cystic fibrosis is a disease which affects the body s exocrine glands, including the Figure 1. Probability of Having a Child With cystic fibrosis http://www.aarc.org/patient_education/tips/cystfibr.html
Extractions: Cystic Fibrosis is a disease which affects the body's exocrine glands, including the pancreas, sweat glands, and the lungs. It is a hereditary disease most common in white children, occuring in about one in every 2000 births. It is less common among African-American children. (about one in 17,000 births), and even more rare among Orientals (one in 100,000 births ) The mode of inheritance is autosomal which means that it does not involve the x or y chromosomes, which determine sex. It is also recessive, which means that the disease is inherited from both parents. About five percent caucasian Americans are believed to carry the gene. The number of CF carriers is likely to increase in the future. Formerly CF patients rarely lived to adulthood, but improvements in treatment allow many to survive into their thirties or forties and have children of their own. The disease varies considerably in severity. Some cases are vary mild, and may not be diagnosed until adulthood. The probabilities of producing offspring who either have the disease or are carriers of the genetic defect are listed in figure 1. Figure 1. Probability of Having a Child With Cystic Fibrosis

Extractions: The hallmark of this disease is elevation of sweat sodium chloride levels. Abnormal secretions within the lungs results in mucus plugging and bronchiectasis. Chest infections, productive cough, dyspnea, wheezing, and hemoptysis are common. There is usually a relentless downhill course. In the later stages of the disease patients with CF develop respiratory insufficiency and cor pulmonale. The airways are usually colonized with Pseudomonas aeruginosa and there are frequent infections with this organism and Staphyloccocus aureus. Etiology/Pathophysiology: This is a hereditary disease with an autosomal recessive transmission. It occurs in 1 in 2000 births. In patients with CF there is increased obstruction of the pulmonary pathways by thickened mucus. This leads to bronchiolitis, increased mucopurulent material, bronchitis, atelectasis, bronchiectasis and diffuse obstruction with overinflated lungs. Pathology: Miscellaneous: Imaging:

Each year, approximately 1,000 persons in the United States receive a diagnosis of CF. Whether screening newborn infants for CF should be recommended on the basis of clinical benefit from early detection has long been the subject of debate and scientific investigation ( ). In 1979, development of a test to measure immunoreactive trypsinogen (IRT) in dried blood spots, which is usually substantially elevated in newborns with CF, made universal newborn screening for CF feasible (
