    Chromosome heteromorphisms of 34 trisomic abortuses and their parents were compared to determine the origin of the extra chromosome. Fourteen of the trisomies were maternal in origin, ten resulting from a first-meiotic-division error and four from either first- or second-meiotic-division errors. No paternally derived trisomy was identified. Of the 33 abortuses studied, trisomy 16, with ten cases, was the most frequent. The remaining abortuses consisted of three cases of trisomy 4, one of trisomy 9, two of trisomy 13, two of trisomy 14, five of trisomy 15, one of trisomy 21, eight of trisomy 22, and one double trisomy (+21+22). In one trisomy, only the mother was available for cytogenetic study.
