Pediatric Geneticist

A pediatric geneticist is a specialist who can rule out possible risks of chromosomal abnormalities and provide fundamental information on how to avoid abnormalities during some periods of the child's development.

Pediatric Geneticist

A geneticist is a highly specialized doctor who diagnoses and treats genetic abnormalities. In turn, these diseases in the child are the responsibility of the pediatric geneticist. It is important to note at the outset that such abnormalities can be detected during fetal formation and further intrauterine development.

Genetics is a science in the general biological sense, and also an applied branch of science in medicine directed on the research of genes, various genetic variations, the influence of heredity on organisms. But separately pediatric genetics gives fundamental information on how to prevent abnormalities at certain stages of formation of the child's organism.

The first genetic tests of a child can be carried out during pregnancy by a genetic screening of the mother. With this first comprehensive examination, a competent specialist can rule out possible risks of chromosome abnormalities.

But it is advisable to consult a paediatric geneticist even earlier - at the stage of pregnancy planning. Why is this important? Because in this way parents can find out in advance exactly what problems the future child may have and, if necessary, reduce the risk of genetic diseases.

Therefore, it is necessary not only to visit a geneticist, but also to undergo a series of examinations over a long period of time with all necessary tests, periodic consultations and compliance with the prescriptions of a qualified specialist. All of the above-mentioned genetics measures can be carried out at CBS with the best possible results in terms of health restoration.

When the Geneticist Consultation is Needed

A pediatric geneticist should be consulted in any case to carry out genetic tests and identify possible risks for the unborn child.

In addition, counselling during fetal development will help to identify specific characteristics and take appropriate measures. For example, to reduce the risks of inherited diseases, formulate the right diet, determine susceptibility to therapy, and take many other factors into account.

Nevertheless, there are a number of cases where, for one reason or another, genetic analysis has not been carried out, or its quality has been unsatisfactory.

Under unfavourable circumstances, diseases can manifest themselves between early childhood and adolescence. If this is the case, genetic counselling is imperative if you want your child to remain healthy and develop normally.

Genetic Pathologies Signs

The symptoms and manifestations of genetic diseases are very complex and can only be identified by a qualified geneticist with experience.

Medical genetic counselling is necessary if the child has:

  • abnormal development, many assumptions are present but no diagnosis has been made;
  • several internal organs are disrupted, there are congenital malformations;
  • there is a sudden worsening of the condition immediately after birth (in the first 24 hours);
  • there is a family history of high risk of genetic abnormalities;
  • there is a disease whose clinical manifestations are identical to those of another family member;
  • a progressively painful condition without clearly defined symptoms;
  • abnormal changes in internal organs (e.g. enlarged liver or spleen).

In addition, genetics-related abnormalities can manifest themselves externally in the form of:

  • disproportionate build delayed physical development;
  • skin conditions such as hypo- and hyperpigmentation spots, angiokeratomas, problems with hair growth;
  • musculoskeletal disorders, joint problems, frequent fractures, poor blood clotting;
  • visual disturbances;
  • neurological symptoms: delayed intellectual and/or psychomotor development, loss of previously acquired skills.

Genetic Diseases in Kids

A pediatric geneticist has to deal with the following diseases as a result of his or her professional work:

  • Diabetes
  • Phenylketonuria
  • Congenital hypothyroidism
  • Diseases of the heart muscle
  • Adrenal hyperplasia
  • Oncological diseases
  • Monogenic diseases
  • Severe combined immunodeficiencies
  • Physical development problems, dystrophy
  • Neurological diseases, including those caused by chromosomal abnormalities

It should be understood that there are a huge number of genetic diseases in children that can only be correctly diagnosed by a practitioner.

Genetic Diagnostics

Genetic diagnosis is an opportunity to detect and prevent diseases associated with abnormalities in a person's genotype in good time.

Modern technology makes it possible to determine the nature of the pathology fairly accurately and prescribe the appropriate therapy or correction:

  • genetic screening;
  • neonatal screening;
  • non-invasive prenatal testing;
  • preventive genetic testing;
  • pre-im.

In all, there are dozens or even hundreds of genetic tests, specific and specialized. It should be understood that their use is permissible only after an initial consultation with a specialist (geneticist or paediatrician), collecting the anamnesis and clarifying all details concerning the health and vital signs of the child.

Correction Methods

Medical and Genetic Consulting is the first stage towards the full life of the child. On completion of diagnostics and passing all required analyses, the clinic specialist can choose the correction method of genetic disorders.

Fortunately, paediatric genetics at this stage of development has the state-of-the-art technology that, in most cases, reduces the risks of genetic abnormalities to a minimum. The geneticist's arsenal includes the most advanced tools available in modern medicine. This includes the latest developments in the field of pharmacology.

Gene therapy is a complex of genetically engineered and medical methods aimed at correcting a person's genetic apparatus in order to treat diseases. It is a relatively young branch of medical science, designed to correct mutations, lesions by viruses and other defects in the DNA structure.

The basic toolkit for the correction and treatment of genetic diseases consists of the following methods and their combinations:

  • dietary;
  • climatic;
  • physiotherapeutic;
  • pharmacological;
  • radiological.

An experienced pediatric geneticist, after determining the diagnosis, will prescribe therapy in the form of a whole range of procedures, the strict observance of which will bring the child's body back to a healthy state.

Depending on the nature of the disease, it will be treated by a whole team of doctors. For example, in the case of musculoskeletal problems, a pediatric orthopedist will be actively involved in the patient's rehabilitation.
