Benefits of adding genetic testing to the clinical assessment

There are several advantages of knowing the genetic etiology of a disease in a family:
a) By identifying the pathogenic variant, the suspected genetic disease is confirmed, and the physician can undertake protective measures.
b) The non-carriers of this variant are free from risk of suffering the family illness,
c) Non-penetrating carriers (without a phenotype) can benefit from various preventive measures (taking or avoiding certain medications, prevent fever, etc.)
