Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a well established method for detecting genetic abnormalities during the course of infertility treatment, resulting in thousands of healthy newborns delivered worldwide. PGD with next generation sequencing (NGS) provides new possibilities for diagnosis and new parameters for evaluation. The use of next-generation DNA sequencing technique has lead to great progress in the human genome analysis. The aim of this study was molecular analysis using next generation sequencing technique of embryos from a couple suffering from recurrent pregnancy losses. As a result of in vitro fertilization procedure, seven embryos were created. Seven blastomeres, one from each embryo, were analyzed. Transfer of two blastocysts in a fresh cycle resulted in the singleton pregnancy. Healthy baby girl was delivered via caesarean section after 28 weeks of gestation (weight: 1250g, Apgar score: 8/9). The reason for the premature labor was likely caused by mother's pneumonia. This is the first case of clinical use of the NGS in PGD in fresh cycle after blastomere biopsy.
