Down syndrome is a disorder that occurs when there is a third 21st chromosome present. It is not inherited, but is rather, in most cases, the result of a random event that occurs during the formation of reproductive cells. Besides certain physical characteristics, people with Down syndrome are at an increased risk of developing mental retardation, congenital heart disease, and other medical conditions. Today, the life expectancy for people with this condition is commonly age 50 and beyond.
