Report of Neurogenetic Unit, Neurology Dept. from December 2015 to November 2016 Number of patients who attended the genetic clinic – 557 Number of patients for whom the following diagnostic tests were done in the genetic laboratory:

Muscle Diseases Duchene’s muscular dystrophy – 39 Becker’s muscular dystrophy – 12 Myotonic dystrophy-i – 14 Spinal muscular atrophy – 15 Movement Disoders Huntington’s disease – 13


Autosomal dominant ataxia; SCA1, SCA2, SCA3, SCA6, SCA12, DRPLA – 64 Autosomal Recessive Ataxia; Friedreich’s Ataxia – 15
Genetic Counseling is done to the adult patients, their family members and to guardians in case of minors regarding their marriage, conceiving another issue, affectation of their children etc. depending upon the pattern of genetic inheritance such as autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, X-linked or mitochondrial inheritance.
