The Indian Journal of Pediatrics, 08/01/2012
Nahar R et al. – The higher Down Syndrome (DS) infant mortality observed in the present study could be attributed to financial constraints of the families and misconceptions amongst health professionals. It is recommended that a nation–wide DS registry be created to study the morbidity and mortality in Down syndrome from birth. The findings of this study will help clinicians in making management decisions and enable better counseling.
