Prof. Mirette Saad provides clinical insights on the importance of non-invasive prenatal screening for 22q11.2 deletion (DiGeorge syndrome), the second most common cause of developmental delay after Down syndrome. Our June edition concludes with an article on Vitamin D deficiency by Dr Tony Mak and Dr David Deam, which offers useful clinical information on who to test, when to test, and follow-up testing recommendations.
