Arthrogryposis Mental Retardation and Seizures Genotyping
The Arthrogryposis, Mental Retardation, and Seizures (AMRS) Genotyping test is a genetic test used to diagnose a rare inherited disorder characterized by joint contractures (arthrogryposis), intellectual disability (mental retardation), and seizures. AMRS is caused by mutations in several different genes, including SACS, BSCL2, and HSPB8.
The AMRS Genotyping test uses DNA analysis to detect mutations in these genes, which can confirm a diagnosis of AMRS. This test is typically used in individuals with a clinical suspicion of AMRS, based on their symptoms and family history.
A positive result from the AMRS Genotyping test confirms a diagnosis of AMRS, but a negative result does not exclude the possibility of other causes of similar symptoms. It's important to discuss the test and its results with a healthcare provider to understand the implications for a person's health.
