Down syndrome is the most common autosomal abnormality disease which has multiple congenital anomalies, occurring in 1 of every 800 liveborn infants. Neonates who are affected with this disease comprise majority of the mentally retarded children. To prevent the birth of this congenital anomaly, prenatal diagnosis of Doen syndrome is important.
