Hello Everyone,

My son has just completed 4 years and he is globally delayed. He has multiple disorders and is undergoing therapies and treatment but there is not much improvement in his condition.

Last week we consulted a geneticist and according to her it could be Mowat Wilson Syndrome, I checked with some of premier hospitals here in India but they don’t have the facility to do the necessary genetic test to establish my son’s condition.

I would like to know from you if you know a place in your or any other country where these tests are done. It would be great if you can provide me any information about the tentative cost of the test.

Thanks & Regards,
Praveen

Hello Preveen,
You can get MWS test done in three places as of this posting.
Children's Mercy Medical Center, Kansas City, MO. U.S.A.
http://www.childrens-mercy.org
Emory University School of Medicine, Decatur, Georgia, U.S.A.
http://genetics.emory.edu/egl/index.php
University of Santiago de Compostela
http://www.usc.es/en/index.jsp
At one point they did testing in Germany at Friedrich-Alexander-Universitat Erlanger-Nurnburg
http://www.humgenet.uni-erlangen.de/
and in France at Assistance Hospitaux Publique De Paris http://www.aphp.fr/ I am not sure if they are still testing there. At one point they were the only places doing tests for MWS under research grants and I don't know if the programs are still in place.
