  • A few years ago I lost a daughter to megacystis microcolon intestinal hypoperistalsis (MMIH) syndrome. I now have a son and hope that he is fine.  I would like to know if it is possible for my son to get this disease? If this is a genetic problem? How I can prevent a future pregnancy from developing this syndrome? and My chances to have a daughter without MMIH syndrome? Also, a relative of mine was recently diagnosed with leukemia. Is leukemia and MMIH syndrome related? Click here for answer
