    Noninvasive prenatal testing by massive parallel sequencing of maternal plasma DNA has rapidly been adopted as a mainstream method for detection of fetal trisomy 21, 18 and 13. Despite the relative high accuracy of current NIPT testing, a substantial number of false-positive and false-negative...

    We present three cases of trisomy 9 mosaicism diagnosed by amniocentesis with ongoing pregnancies after referral to our center due to fetal abnormalities. Two cases were associated with severe fetal growth restriction (FGR), each of which resulted in an intrauterine fetal demise (IUFD) in the...

    Trisomy of chromosome 20 is probably not compatible with life, whereas the mosaic of trisomy 20 belongs to most frequent chromosomal aberrations in general, mostly with a favorable phenotype. Our case report deals with a newborn of prenatally diagnosed complete trisomy 20 in amniocytes. It was...

    Fetal trisomy 16 is considered uniformly lethal early in gestation. It has been reported to be associated with the variability of clinical features and outcomes. Mosaic trisomy 16 leads to a high risk of abnormality in prenatal cases. Intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) is a common outcome of...

    Causes of chromosomal nondisjunction is one of the remaining unanswered questions in human genetics. In order to increase our understanding of the mechanisms underlying nondisjunction we have performed a molecular study on trisomy 8 and trisomy 8 mosaicism. We report the results on analyses of...

    We report on a case of a 6-year-old female with partial trisomy 8p(21–23) associated with autism, mild dysmorphic features, and moderate learning disability. Although mental retardation is a common finding in patients with mosaic trisomy 8 or partial trisomy of various regions of...

    Proximal duplications of chromosome 1q are rare chromosomal abnormalities. Most patients with this condition present with neurological, urogenital, and congenital heart disease and short life expectancy. Mosaicism for trisomy 1q10q23.3 has only been reported once in the literature. Here we...

  • Mosaic trisomy 13: understanding origin using SNP array. Jinawath, Natini; Zambrano, Regina; Wohler, Elizabeth; Palmquist, Maria K.; Hoover-Fong, Julie; Hamosh, Ada; Batista, Denise A. S. // Journal of Medical Genetics;May2011, Vol. 48 Issue 5, p323 

    Background Trisomy 13 occurs in 1/10 000-20 000 live births, and mosaicism accounts for 5% of these cases. Phenotype and outcome of mosaic trisomy 13 are variable and poorly understood. Microsatellite analyses of trisomy 13 have indicated the high incidence of maternal meiotic origin and reduced...
