GLOSSARY: Sequencing

Sequencing in medicine, refers to a series of ordered consequences due to a single cause. Examples include: oligohydramnios sequence (also known as Potter sequence or Potter's syndrome or Potter's sequence) refers to the typical physical appearances of a fetus or neonate due to oligohydramnios experienced in the womb. Pierre Robin sequence also known as Pierre Robin Syndrome or Pierre Robin Malformation is a congenital condition of facial abnormalities in humans.
