In this issue we published 2 studies that examined genetic testing in diagnosing serious illnesses in children. In the first, Tan and colleagues examined 61 ambulatory children at a mean age of 28 months and provided 23 (52%) with diagnoses through singleton whole-exome sequencing. Eight diagnoses (35%) were unexpected and the sequencing was cost-saving.. The Editorial by Lemke discusses the use of high-throughput sequencing early in the diagnostic workup of children with early-onset disorders.

In the second article on genetic testing, Berg et al studied 327 children younger than 3 years with newly diagnosed epilepsy with various forms of genetic testing and identified pathogenic variants in 131 (40%). The Editorial by Lemke also discusses these conclusions.
