Hi, folks. My friends’ got a baby, but after few months he was diagnosed with Usher syndrome. I wonder whether someone can know upfront whether this syndrome will appear. Is there some genetic screening for this syndrome? I would appreciate if you could tell me this. Your help is more than welcomed. Bye!

Hello. Screening means discovering a disease with people who have no symptoms. In Usher syndrome, there are lots of chromosome loci that are involved. That’s what makes the genetic testing difficult. This isn’t still widespread. Testing is more done in hearing, balance and vision basis. Genetic testing is available for known genes in certain clinics. I don’t know how much they cost. I hope this helps. Bye!
