Can Morris syndrome be prevented?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 05/09/2019

Yes, since it is a genetic alteration linked to the X chromosome, Morris syndrome could be avoided by making a preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) of the embryos during IVF treatment.

However, in order to perform PGD, the woman would have to know that she is a carrier of Morris syndrome in order to carry out an informative study and locate the specific mutation of the disease.
