Abstract

It was presented a case of prenatally diagnosed Cri du chat syndrome, complicated by multiple congenital heart disease, with many additional problems that eventually may become the basis for disqualification the child from complex cardiac surgery. Due to the complexity of congenital heart disease, the potential for multistage treatment, the severe form of the genetic syndrome confirmed by detailed cytogenetic studies, severe clinical course, and multiple organ dysfunction, patient has not been qualified for cardiac surgery. Knowledge based on prenatal diagnosis allows to predict severe consequences in the newborn. Detailed genetic counseling makes it possible to prepare parents for a genetic birth defect and a congenital heart defect not eligible for cardiac surgery.
