Abstract: Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) is a foetal abnormality affecting diaphragm and lung development with a high mortality rate despite advances in foetal and neonatal therapy. CDH may occur either as an isolated defect or in syndromic form for which the prognosis is worse. Although conventional karyotyping and more recently chromosomal microarrays support a substantial role for genetic factors, causal genes responsible for isolated CDH remain elusive. We propose that chromosomal microarray analysis will identify CNVs associated with isolated CDH.
