Answer

Genetic counseling is often helpful to assist patients with family-planning decisions. However, definitive prenatal diagnosis is only possible if a disease-causing mutation has been identified. Genetic counseling is especially important for families of patients with CCD to avoid unexpected cases of malignant hyperthermia in asymptomatic relatives.
