Treatments for Trisomy 18 and 13 in Children

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

There is no cure for trisomies 18 and 13 at this time. Treatment is based on support and managing symptoms. In fact, many babies born with these disorders may not live beyond the first few days or weeks of life. It is important to discuss whether to use life support measures or other medical procedures.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
