Chromosomal mosaicism; Gonadal mosaicism
Symptoms vary from person to person and are very difficult to predict. When a person has both normal and abnormal cells, problems may not be as severe.
Mosaicism can be found through chromosome evaluation or microarray analysis. It is usually described as a percentage of the cells examined. Males normally have the chromosomes 46 XY and females normally have the chromosomes 46 XX.
Tests will likely need to be repeated to confirm the results, and to help determine the type and severity of the mosaicism.
