I have just had results from bloods done on my son. I thought they were testing for fragile x (fmr1 cgg repeats). but turned out they done a cgh array which seems to be the common thing in the uk and tests all chromosomes but cannot detect fragile x. The array has shown a duplication in chromosome 17 which they say could be the cause of his difficulties, and wont currently test for fragile x. I was wondering if anyone has come across this and is it at all possible to have both? Thank you.
