Autism Spectrum Disorder is a neurodevelopment disorder, with the etiology unknown in 75 - 80% of cases.
The aim of this review is find an etiology of ASD, detected in genetic consultation during a period of one year (1/6/2017 to 31/5/2018). We found 22 cases with this criteria according to DSM-V. A total of 9 cases (40.9%) of ASD was detected an etiology: 2 x fragile, 1 Angelman, 1 Rett, 1 Hunter, 1 trisomy 8, 1 del2p13 and 1 del 6p21.3. The gender ratio was 4.5 male/1 female. The average age of diagnosis was 4.7 years.
In patients with ASD, we need to try to find an etiology. Will be important for future support treatment, prenatal diagnosis and genetic counseling.
