A major application of array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) is to define a specific cause in children with undiagnosed learning and developmental disability (LDD). Medical notes for 46 consecutive patients selected for aCGH analysis by clinical dysmorphologists were abstracted for clinical investigations related to LDD and a cost-consequences analysis was performed. aCGH analysis was completed in 36 cases and five diagnostic chromosomal anomalies were identified (13.8%). The number of… CONTINUE READING
