Leighee Eastbury is suing an IVF clinic for not detecting she was a carrier for Fragile X syndrome.

A woman is suing an Australian IVF provider for not detecting she was a carrier for Fragile X syndrome before her two sons were born with the genetic condition.

Leighee Eastbury, whose uncle has Fragile X, sought testing for the condition in 1999 and was told she wasn't a carrier before she and her husband Phil had their sons, now aged nine and six, the NSW Supreme Court heard on Monday.

The couple are suing Genea, formerly known as Sydney IVF Limited, with their barrister Jay Anderson saying it provided an inappropriate test for Ms Eastbury.
