Patau Syndrome or Trisomy 13 is a condition that is most commonly associated with severe intellectual disability and physical abnormalities, like heart defects, or even brain and spinal cord abnormalities. There are also many other conditions that are a result of Patau Syndrome, including, poorly developed eyes, cleft lip, and even weak muscles overall. The most likely cause of Trisomy 13 is because there are 3 copies of chromosome 13 in each cell in the body instead of just the regular 2. This causes the normal course of development to be impaired which results in the conditions to arise. ( Trisomy 13 – Genetics Home Reference – NIH, n.d. ) Most cases of this disorder are not passed on from the parent but rather caused by some random events that occurred from the formation of the egg and sperm from the parents. Sadly, the prognosis for this disease is the people who are diagnosed with Patau Syndrome, usually only live to see a couple of days to weeks, only a mere 5% of people with this syndrome live past their first year of life.
