: child might have PRS or something worse.
: Does anyone know statistics on PRS inside a
: family? The occurrence among siblings?
: Haley was genetic tested at after birth and
: showed genetic abnormalities and so far has
: had no other complications.
: Thank you,
: Haley's Mom
Did you say they did find abnormalities with the genetic testing? As far as I know PRS is not genetic, but alot of children with PRS also have Sticklers syndrome, which is genetic. My son did not show any signs of sticklers until he was 16 and we only found out he had sticklers a few weeks ago, so please check into that. Take care and good luck.
