Prenatal diagnosis of galactosemia.Biomedicine. 1978 Jun; 29(4):136-8.B
We have monitored 3 pregnancies at risk for galactosemia by deficiency in Galactose-1-Phospho uridyl transferase. Galactosemia was diagnosed in the 1st case; heterozygoty in the 2nd, and a "double heterozygoty" in the 3rd. The latter is the first example of such a diagnosis. Post natal confirmation was obtained in the three cases. Arguments are given for the usefulness of this prenatal diagnosis.
