People with Down syndrome are prone to cardiac disorder or mild mental retardation. Babies with trisomy 13 and 18 have the same effects as Down syndrome and majority of them do not survive after 1 year of age. Spina bifida, which is a neural tube defect, happens when a baby’s spinal cord not fully developed and close into a tube. The chances are higher to have spina bifida if someone has a family history of the same. People suffering from it have partial paralysis, mental retardation or bladder issues.
