Abstract

Identification of inherited or genetic disorders has important implications for the prognosis and treatment of affected infants. This article addresses the three most common categories of genetic disorders--single-gene defects, chromosomal abnormalities, and multifactorial conditions. The principles of transmission, risk of inheritance, and clinical significance of each category are discussed, with examples of inherited disorders in each category.
