Down's syndrome

What is Down's syndrome?

Down's syndrome is when you're born with an extra chromosome which you usually get by chance, because of a change in the sperm or egg before you're born.  This change does not happen because of anything anyone did before or during pregnancy.

In almost all cases, Down's syndrome does not run in families.
