Abstract

Edward’s syndrome is commonly known as the trisomy 18 syndrome. It is a devastating genetic disorder that can be characterized by multiple congenital anomalies. About 50% babies with this syndrome do not survive beyond one week of age and approximately 95% does not survive past the first year of life. The feature of Edward’s Syndrome involves in craniofacial, skeletal, cardiovascular, central nervous system and genitourinary malformations.
