A screening test failed to diagnose the potentially severe genetic disorder of a Danish Sperm Donor and as a result today five children are suffering from it.
The man was a victim of the tumor-producing nerve disorder Neurofibromatosis type I, which is also known as Von Recklinghausen's disease.
As told by the Copenhagen clinic where this man gave his sperms to father five children in Nordisk Cryobank, it is for sure that this disorder has come into these babies from this donor only.
In this regard, the clinic's director general, Peter Bower added that it is not always that this disorder is transmitted by a person's parents. It was in October 2009, when this donor fathered a number of children in 10 different countries of Europe and abroad and therefore it is difficult to pin point that where and when these babies were born. It is a confidential matter.
According to the date and records of Public broadcaster DR, till now, this donor has fathered 43 children at around 14 different clinics.
Following the existence of these cases, now the Denmark's national health council has decided not to use a single donor for sperms. From October 1 onwards, it would limit the use of one donor's sperm to only 12 pregnancies.
