Diagnostic approaches

      
For parents, caregivers, health care providers, and teachers, concerns and questions often arise regarding the care and well-being of individuals with Cornelia de Lange syndrome. 

There are multiple approaches to get a diagnose. You can try to do it prior to birth, as early as possible. After birth you can get a clinical diagnose (by visual observation and by diagnoses of body defects). The definitive diagnose can be confirmed by molecular testing the genes for a mutation (since 2007).
