  • My family is known to carry the genes for Sanfilippo A or MPS IIIA. Is there a test that I can request when I conceive to know if my child will have the disease? I understand to have myself/my husband tested it is very pricey. What options do we have? How early can we test a fetus? My cousin had the disease and any help would be greatly appreciated.
