15q24 deletion syndrome
How should I monitor a pregnancy with 15q24 microdeletion syndrome?
Most mother's carrying babies with a 15q24 microdeletion have so far not experienced any pregnancy problems, have a normal delivery and only discover that their baby was affected after birth. If a fetus is known to have 15q24 microdeletion syndrome, it is recommended to have fetal echocardiogram (used to scan the baby's heart) and an ultrasound examination in order to monitor growth and heart defects.
