Results

Results of DNA analysis will be communicated in a written report to the referring professional.

Reason

DNA analysis is appropriate for the study of affected patients, for diagnostic confirmation in a suspected affected patient, and in prenatal testing situations after the family mutation has been identified in the proband.
