Successive spontaneous abortions including one with whole-arm translocation between chromosomes 2.


A family with five induced and seven spontaneous abortions and no live births is described. Four of the seven spontaneous abortuses were available for cytogenetic examination and three were successfully karyotyped. Their karyotypes were 46,XX; 46,XX/46,XX,t(2;2)(2p2p;2q2q); and 46,XY. The karyotypes of the parents were normal. The origin of the 2p/2p and 2q/2q translocation in one of the abortuses was assigned to an interhomologous whole-arm translocation in an early mitotic division in a conceptus with a 46,XX karyotype.
