Karyotype

A karyotype is a test to evaluate the size, shape, and number of chromosomes. Extra or missing chromosomes, or abnormal positions of chromosome pieces, can cause problems with growth, development, and body functions. A karyotype is often a helpful test to determine the genetic contribution to a constellation of medical and/or developmental problems.
