AUTOSOMAL ABERRATION

refers to any disorder of bodily structure, function, or both that is associated with an alteration in the structure/number of any chromosomes that are not sex chromosomes (see autosome). An example of such a disorder is Down Syndrome, which is caused by modifications to one of a pair of chromosomes. Also known as autosomal abnormality- autosomal anomaly.

AUTOSOMAL ABERRATION: "An autosomal aberration is a genetic anomaly seen on chromosomes, which then cause the person to have structural or functional problems in multiple parts of the body."
