Different ways to seek diagnosis
Wilhelm Foundation believes that all children who have an undiagnosed disease have the right to a genetic investigation even a second opinion.
If the child has never carried out a genetic investigation, we think that the parents should ask for a referral to a genetic investigation.
If a genetic investigation was done a few years ago, it may be time to redo it. Genetics and genetic investigation methods have developed enormously in recent years and continue to develop, which is why a new genetic investigation may be an opportunity to get a diagnosis for the child.
Is the child still undiagnosed
If the undiagnosed child has recently undergone a genetic examination at one of the university hospitals and still is undiagnosed, there may be an opportunity to apply to an Undiagnosed Diseases Program (UDP), which is a center for diagnosis. Read more under UDP Undiagnosed Diseases Program.
