The trends in prenatal diagnosis of enzyme defects predicted last year,' namely an increase in diagnosis in the first trimester by chorionic villus sampling and early amniocentesis and greater exploitation of DNA analysis and the diagnosis of genetic errors in preimplantation embryos, have been fulfilled.
