Nonimmune Hydrops: Clinical Utility of Prenatal Exome Sequencing
University of California San Francisco UCSF
About this course

Session Description

We plan to review cases seen at UCSF Medical Center with a prenatal diagnosis of non-immune hydrops fetalis and a normal microarray who went on to have prenatal exome sequencing.  The results of the exome sequencing including the variant details and laboratory interpretation will be reviewed. We will discuss the disclosure of results and review the impact these results had on the medical management of the neonates and family planning. 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the series, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe the clinical utility of whole exome/whole genome sequencing tests
  2. Identify clinical indications for whole exome/whole genome sequencing
  3. List determinants used to assess the probability of a variant’s pathogenicity
  4. Elaborate on the importance of pre-test counseling and consent

Session Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify patients appropriate for referral for prenatal exome sequencing with an indication of nonimmune hydrops fetalis.
  2. Recognize the genetic heterogeneity of non-immune hydrops fetalis.  
  3. Describe the potential clinical utility of performing exome sequencing in the setting of non-immune hydrops fetalis.
