Patau syndromes is a disorder caused by chromosomal abnormality.It occurs when some or all the cells contain extra copy of the chromosome 13.This restricts the normal functioning ,growth and development of the organs resulting in intellectual disability and physical abnormalities. It is also called Trisomy 13.It also can occur when part of chromosome gets attatched to another chromosome during the formation of embryo.
Most cases of trisomy 13 are not inherited and results from the random events during the formation of eggs and sperm. An error in cell division may result in abnormal number of chromosome. If this extra copy contributes in the genetic makeup of child then the child possess an extra chromosome 13 in each cell of the body resulting in the physical abnormalities in most of the parts.
