Hi I am new to this site...recently my best friends baby was diagnosed with chromosome deletion of chromosome 4, 13 and now 2...what exactly does this mean in regards to developmental prognosis...will she be normal? Is there someone out there who has these deletions and functions as a normal child or will she be delayed. Recently she had craniosynostosis surgery which has changed her appearance drastically, and she also has laryngomalacia which affects her swallowing and eating....any information will help as the geneticist havent given any answers to anything yet
