A pediatric geneticist is a doctor who possesses training in both pediatric genetics and pediatrics, giving them the experience to recognize the manifestations of rare genetic syndromes in children. Many of the diseases seen in the pediatric population have a genetic component, as organ damage secondary to senility or years of inflammatory insult have not had time to accumulate. Whether or not we have discovered the genetic basis, it is likely that an underlying germline or somatic defect underlies a significant proportion of the diseases encountered in clinical practice. Children with a constellation of symptoms may present with a syndromic condition, and syndromic is often synonymous with genetic. It is important to get a feel for when children are presenting as such to initiate appropriate referrals.
