dc.description.abstractThe spectrum of medical conditions and the cytogenetic profile in all children with Down syndrome attending a referral clinic in Amman, Jordan over a 1-year period was described. A total of 33 patients [‎18 females, 15 males]‎ attended, aged from day 1 to 14 years. Median maternal age at the time of delivery was 31.5 years. Eleven [‎33%]‎ children had a mild to moderate conductive hearing loss, 5 [‎15%]‎ had sensorineural hearing loss. 9 [‎27%]‎ had refractive error and 3 [‎9%]‎ showed Brushfield spots. Primary hypothyroidism was documented in 10 [‎30%]‎ children. Congenital cardiac defects were found in 22 [‎67%]‎ children; the most common was atrial or ventral septal defect. Cytogenetic testing results revealed that 28 [‎85%]‎ had trisomy 21 [‎3 had translocation and 2 showed mosaic pattern]‎. The clinical profile of Down syndrome patients at our centre varies from reports from other centresEN
