Johan Bester (Medicine) and co-authors published an ethical analysis of a difficult case in a leading pediatrics journal, Pediatrics. The case revolves around a mother requesting that her 11-year-old child be secretly tested for a genetic disorder that runs in their family. The ethical analysis examines whether it is ethically permissible to test the child without her knowledge or assent.
