Trisomy 18, known as Edwards Syndrome, is a rare condition resulting from genetic errors on the 18th chromosome. The disorder occurs in approximately 1 in 5,000 live births and much more commonly affects females than males. This disorder often results in physical deformities, defects in internal organs, and severe intellectual and developmental disabilities.
