Abstract
  • This volume is the programme and abstracts of the consensus conference on screening for foetal and genetic abnormality and is for use by the panel and the audience as a reference guide to the deliberations of the conference. With the decline of infectious diseases as the major cause of perinatal mortality and disability, congenital disorders and genetic disorders now account for up to 40 per cent of childhood deaths and three quarters of serious disabilities. Screening to identify families at risk and antenatal detections of foetal abnormality has now become technically possible for an increasing range of disorders.
