Tertiary partial 14 trisomy 47, XX, +14q-


Description is given of a female child with tertiary partial 14 trisomy (+14q-) due to non-disjunction of one of the translocation products in the mother, who presents an apparently balanced 14/19 translocation.


Beschreibung eines weiblichen Kindes mit einer tertiären partiellen Trisomie 14 (+14q-) infolge einer Non-disjunction eines der zwei Translokationschromosome in der Mutter, Träger einer balancierten 14/19-Translokation.
