  • Fetal Birth Defects: Toward a Precision-based Approach

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This is a multi-center, prospective study designed to investigate the genetic etiologies of non-immune hydrops fetalis (NIHF) and other birth defects. In the setting of NIHF, up to 40-50% of prenatally diagnosed cases remain of unknown etiology after standard work up, and a substantial proportion of other birth defects remain of unknown etiology as well. The investigators will perform whole exome sequencing (WES) for the fetus or neonate, as well as both biological parents, in each of these cases to investigate the underlying genetic etiology.
