I am a married person since five years. There is seen Trisomy 20+ (three chromosome at 20 position insted of normally two!) in last abortive case karyotyping. We have to accept three abortion due to this dicease, because in fetus there was no heart beat after three month, and no nodal was seen or developed.
What is trisomy 20+? is it cured?
Doctor suggested both us for karyotyping of couple. we both are A+(blood group).

  • one of you may have balanced robertsonian translocation. If that's the case, then your offspring will have a 50% chance of carrying the mutation and appear normal. and 50% chance of having an unbalanced chromosome resulting in things like trisomy. Famous example, a small percentage of Down syndrome (Trisomy 21)children result from one parent with a robertsonian translocation. Most Trisomy offsprings are not viable, Down syndrome is one of the rare ones that the babies don't die in the womb. That is the purpose of the genetic test, to rule out such a thing.
