This conference examines the case of a male infant who is diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. Both parents have a family history of cystic fibrosis, but genetic testing had shown negative results for the presence of the most common mutated CF alleles. During the case, students are asked to discuss the impact of the CF diagnosis as well as the implications of genetic testing in general.
