Neurogenetic Risk Assessment

Finding the appropriate neurogenetic testing for you.

Know Your Risk

The genetic counselors at ChristianaCare will work directly with your referring neurologist to ensure the appropriate neurogenetic testing is offered to you. Consultation will include discussion of the diagnostic differential (a list of possible conditions or diseases that could be causing your symptoms), benefits to undergoing genetic testing and limitations of current testing technology. 

Neurology Indications

Consultation with one of our expert genetic counselors may be considered for individuals who are affected themselves or have a family member with positive genetic test results for the following conditions:

  • Neuropathy — certain types of nerve pain, numbness and resulting weakness.
  • Myotonia — muscle weakness and/or muscle degeneration.
  • Ataxia — atypical bodily movements and loss of coordination.
  • Epilepsy — abnormal brain activity leading to seizures.

At this time, we are only accepting referrals for neurogenetic consultation through direct referral from Neurology.
