A diagnosis of DiGeorge syndrome may be delayed or missed because it is rare and, in some infants and children, symptoms can be mild and/or mimic other diseases. These include other immune system disorders, such as immune system deficiency, endocrine diseases, or heart defects or hypoparathyroidism due to other causes.
In addition, a prenatal diagnosis of DiGeorge syndrome may be delayed or missed because pregnant women are not routinely screened for this genetic disorder. Testing may be done for DiGeorge syndrome during pregnancy if it is known that the disorder is present in the family or if certain heart defects or other anomalies are seen or suspected during ultrasound testing and other prenatal care.
Because of these factors, it is important to seek early prenatal care during or before pregnancy and to obtain regular medical care for infants and children.
