Down syndrome occurs in approximately one out of every 690 births and constitutes the most common cause of intellectual disability. There are 6 million people with Down syndrome in the world. Even though its origins are still unknown, we know that it has nothing to do with nationality, socio-economic background or religion. The risk of having a child with Down syndrome increases with the mother's age.
