First Trimester Fetal Diagnosis

by M. Fraccaro

First Trimester Fetal Diagnosis Synopsis

Of 646 cases involving first trimester chromosome analysis of chorionic villi sam- ples obtained by trans cervical aspiration, we found 34 abnormal unbalanced karyo- types. In six of these, fetal fibroblast cultures obtained after termination of the preg- nancy failed to confirm the abnormality. Three cases were mosaics identified from direct preparations: 46,XY/45,X; 46,XX/47,XX,+3; and 46,XY/47,XY,+18. In two cases of trisomy 16 (46,XY/47,XY,+16; 46,XX/47,XX,+16) and one oftriso- my18 (46,XX/47,XX,+18), no mosaicism was detected. In the other 28 cases with unbalanced abnormal karyotypes, there was karyotypic correspondence between villous cells at diagnosis and fetal fibroblasts. References 1.
