What is Down Syndrome?

Down syndrome (DS) is a chromosomal abnormality due to excess genetic material found in the genes along the 21st chromosome. Since 95% of all DS cases occur because there are three copies of the 21st chromosome rather than the usual two, it is often referred to as trisomy 21. The additional genetic material alters the course of development and causes the characteristics associated with DS.
