Has anyone ever heard of Edwards Syndrome?

I did some research on it. Got plenty of information but still have never heard of it. Is it really as common as it seems to be?

  • Edwards syndrome (Trisomy 18) is a genetic desease much like down syndrom (which is trisomy 21) Trisomy 18, or Edwards syndrome, effects around 1 in 6-8 thousand babies. I don't find that common at all.
