Welcome to my personal website! My name is Fabiano Poswar, a medical geneticist from Brazil.
Medical Genetics is the medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of genetic diseases and birth defects. Despite not having areas of activity defined by the Brazilian Medical Association, informally most medical geneticists in Brazil divide it into subareas such as Dysmorphology, Inborn Errors of Metabolism, Neurogenetics, Oncogenetics and Reproductive Genetics. There are also geneticists who work in areas that intersect with other medical specialties such as Cardiogenetics, Hematogenetics, Immunogenetics, Ophthalmogenetics, often in multidisciplinary outpatient clinics. Anyway, it is a very broad area and works in rare genetic diseases and also in familial forms of common diseases.
The content on this website is intended primarily for healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with genetic disorders. However, patients, family members or other interested parties will also be able to find some important information.
