PATAU SYNDROME :The signs of Patau syndrome become evident at birth. Although microphthalmia, cleft palate and polydactyly constitute the classic triad of trisomy, not all three signs are present in all cases of Patau syndrome. The neonate presents with variable physical defects, and upon further assessment, cardiac, neurological, renal and ocular anomalies. Some of these anomalies are listed here: Craniofacial defects:- Scalp defects Low-set ears Cleft lip Cleft palate Bulbous nose Hypotelorism Micrognathia Limb defects Polydactyly Rocker-bottom feet Single palmar crease Heart defects:- Patent ductus arteriosus Atrial septal defect Ventricular septal defect CNS abnormalities:- Microcephaly Neural tube defects Holoprosencephaly Hypoplasia of the cerebellum Hydrocephalus Spinal dysraphism Ocular abnormalities:- Microphthalmia Coloboma of the iris Ciliary body Retinal dysplasia Renal anomalies Genitalia anomalies These clinical findings at birth are indicative of Patau syndrome. However, diagnosis must only be made when trisomy 13 is evident on karyotyping. Parents who opt for screening of fetal chromosomal defects can find if the fetus has an extra chromosome 13 before birth. They, then, have the option of continuing or terminating the pregnancy. The clinical signs of Patau syndrome are similar to those of Edwards syndrome. Care must be taken, as this similarity often leads to misdiagnosis.
