In recognition of World Down Syndrome Day, which takes place on 3/21 to represent the third copy of the 21st chromosome, the Southern Medical Journal has made available "Care of the Adult Patient with Down Syndrome", a review article from the November 2014 issue.

Down syndrome is the most commonly occurring chromosomal condition and is caused by a full or partial extra copy of chromosome 21. People with Down syndrome are living longer, happier and healthier lives than ever before; they are attending school, working and contributing to society in many wonderful ways.

For additional information about Down syndrome and events taking place on March 21, please visit the National Down Syndrome Society website.
