Q: I am 100% Ashkenazi Jewish, do I need the full Comprehensive Jewish panel of 96 disorders even if I don’t have any Sephardi or Mizrahi blood?

We would recommend performing the entire Comprehensive Jewish panel of 96 disorders as we have found rare instances where self-reported Ashkenazi Jewish individuals had a mutation thought to be primarily found in the Sephardi or Mizrahi sub-groups. The same holds true for individuals who are of Sephardi or Mizrahi backgrounds inquiring about the utility of performing testing for diseases thought to be relevant to the Ashkenazim.
