    Clonal abnormalities were defined as two or more cells with the same chromosomal gain or structural rearrangement or at least three cells with the same chromosome deletion. Karyotypes were recorded according to the International System for Human Cytogenetic Nomenclature (ISCN) 2013.14 In addition, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) was performed in most cases (n = 158). The following commercial FISH probes were used in subset of patients: a BCR/ABL dual-color, dual-translocation probe (n = 158);

    Even if the percentage for hormonal and gonadal abnormalities is more compared to chromosomal abnormalities in SA, cytogenetic investigation is a must. The percentage of total CA (16%) in SA of the present study will hold good with previous studies which vary from 5 – 33.3% and pure numerical abnormalities (45,X; 47,XXX) could not be observed (table 3). The CA observed was only X mosaicism in two of the studies (gupta, Butnarui) as compared to present study (16/43%). The percentage for X mosaicism

(56) Only in 1959 was the chromosomal basis of the disorder described. Subsequently the diagnosis of Klinefelter syndrome has required the demonstration of the 47,XXY karyotype or one of its rarer variants. (57) The prevalence of Klinefelter syndrome appears

  • Congenital Condition Of Congenital Heart Defects

    1188 Words  | 5 Pages

    INTRODUCTION Congenital Heart Defects (CHDs) include all structural anomalies of the heart and the intrathoracic great vessels resulting from the errors in morphogenesis, during development. The incidence of CHDs among live births is estimated to be 3.7 to 7.7 per 1000 (Ferencz et al. 1985). CHDs are etiologically heterogenous and it could be due to genetic (single gene defects, chromosomal abnormality) and or environmental (multifactorial, teratogens) or unknown factors (Michels and Ricardi

Some cases are caused by a Robertsonian translocation between chromosome 13 and other autosomes such as chromosomes 15, 21, and 22. According to Bishra & Clericuzio "Trisomy 13 is the third most common autosomal trisomy, with an incidence of 1 per 10,000" (Bishara & Clericuzio, 2008, p. 30).
