Down syndrome (referenced in USA) or Down's syndrome throughout the world, the most common genetic birth defect is a chromosomal anomaly. It affects all races and economic levels equally throughout the world. It has only been over the past twenty years that significant advances in human genetics have compounded a move toward the future needs and potential of children and young adults with Down syndrome.
