Does PGD test for Gorlin - abnormal PTCH gene? Is this standard or must it be requested?

Hello Raeds,
PGD can potentially test for the PTCH1 gene mutation. It will be a custom made probe, and it is not a readily available product. The probe is designed to test for an individual mutation, not for every possible mutation in the population.
I would encourage you to schedule a personal or a phone consult where we can discuss your options. Once we have the information of the specific mutation, we can decide on the best clinical and cost-effective approach.
