ABSTRACT

Introducción: La leucemia linfoblástica aguda (LLA) es la neoplasia maligna de mayor frecuencia en la infancia; advertir sus alteraciones moleculares y citogenéticas permite establecer el riesgo, el pronóstico asociado y además plantear esquemas terapéuticos apropiados; el objetivo de este estudio es conocer la prevalencia de estas alteraciones en nuestra población. Metodología: Estudio de tipo retrospectivo y transversal, basado en los registros de las alteraciones moleculares y citogenéticas de los pacientes pediátricos diagnosticados con leucemia linfoblástica aguda durante el periodo comprendido entre enero 2014 a diciembre de 2018, en el Hospital del Instituto Oncológico Nacional "Dr. Juan Tanca Marengo". Resultados: Se incluyeron 338 pacientes, de los cuales el principal grupo etario lo constituyo el de 0 a 4 años; el inmunofenotipo más observado fue el B-común. En el 24.56% de los casos se detectó altercaciones estructurales, principalmente por estudios de biología molecular; siendo la más común la translocación t(12;21). Se obtuvieron resultados por citogenética en 167 pacientes, en cuales la principal alteración numérica correspondió a la hiperdiploidía de entre 47 a 51 cromosomas. Conclusión: Los avances en la caracterización molecular y citogenética de la LLA, permiten mejorar la estratificación de su riesgo; y establecer estrategias terapéuticas que permitan una mejoría en la sobrevida.


Introduction: Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most frequent malignant neoplasm in childhood; Noting its molecular and cytogenetic alterations allows to establish the risk, the associat-ed prognosis and also to propose appropriate therapeutic schemes; The objective of this study is to know the prevalence of these alterations in our population. Methods: Retrospective and cross-sectional study, based on the records of molecular and cytogenetic alterations of pediatric patients diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia during the period from January 2014 to December 2018, at the National Oncological Institute Hospital "Dr. Juan Tanca Marengo". Results: 338 patients were included, of which the main age group was made up of 0 to 4 years; the most observed immunophenotype was B-common. In 24.56% of the cases, structural alterations were detected, mainly by molecular biology studies; the most common being the t (12; 21) translocation. Cytogenetics results were obtained in 167 patients, in which the main numerical alteration corresponded to hyperdiploidy of between 47 and 51 chromosomes. Conclusions: Advances in the molecular and cytogenetic characterization of ALL make it possible to improve the stratification of its risk; and establish therapeutic strategies that achieve an improvement in survival.

ABSTRACT

Descrição: Relato de caso de um paciente com um transcrito raro (e1a2) na Leucemia Mieloide Crônica (LMC) e outro com uma translocação rara na Síndrome Mielodisplásica (SMD). Discussão: O transcrito e1a2 possui frequência de 1% entre os casos de LMC, já a translocação t(11,17)(q23;q21) não foi evidenciada em paciente com SMD do tipo Anemia Refratária com Excesso de Blastos (AREB) do tipo 2. Conclusão: Ambos os casos apresentados possuem associação incomum entre fenótipo e genótipo. A correlação da clínica com os achados laboratoriais é importante para a determinação fidedigna do diagnóstico e prognóstico destes pacientes.


Description: Case report of a patient with a rare transcript (e1a2) in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) and another with a rare translocation in Myelodysplastic Syndrome (SMD). Discussion: The transcript e1a2 has a frequency of 1% in CML cases, whereas t (11,17) (q23; q21) translocation was not observed in a patient with type of Refractory Anemia with Excess Blasts (AREB) type 2. Conclusion: Both cases reported have unusual association between phenotype and genotype. The correlation of the clinic with the laboratory findings is important for the reliable determination of the diagnosis and prognosis of these patients.

ABSTRACT

Chronic myeloid leukemia with a significant increase of monocytes is rare and difficult to identify from chronic myelo-monocytic leukemia in clinic. A 31-year-old male patient with systemic pain was initially diagnosed as chronic myelo-monocytic leukemia, who was finally diagnosed as chronic myeloid leukemia by fusion gene and chromosome examination. In addition to the typical Ph chromosome, a rare chromosome translocation t(2; 7)(p13; p22) was observed. The detection of monocyte subsets by multi-parameter flow cytometry is a diagnostic marker to distinguish the above 2 diseases. The relationship between fusion genes and mononucleosis is not clear. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors or allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation can be used in the treatment for this disease.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To deeply understand the clinical manifestation, laboratory examination characteristics, diagnosis and treatment of an eight p11 myeloproliferative syndrome (EMS) with rare phenotypes.@*METHODS@#The clinical and laboratory characteristics and the process of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) were summarized in 1 rare EMS case involving T/B/myeloid cells. Meanwhile, 2 similar cases in the previous literature were also discussed.@*RESULTS@#The bone marrow examination indicated that the patient with B-cell acute lymphocytic leukemia. The lymph node biopsy showed that the patient was T lymphoblastic/myeloid lymphoma. The 8p11 abnormality was found by the examination of bone marrow chromosomes. The RT-PCR examination showed that the BCR-ABL fused gene was negtive. The FGFR1 breakage was found by using the FISH with FGFR1 probe in lymph node. The Mutation of FMNL3, NBPF1 and RUNX1 genes was found by using the whole exome sequencing. The patient received allo-HSCT under CR2. By the follow-up till to September 2019, the patient survived without the above-mentioned disease.@*CONCLUSION@#EMS manifest as neoplasms involving T-lineage, B-lineage, and myeloid-lineage simultaneously is extremely rare. Although the FGFR1 gene-targeted therapy can be conducted, allo-HSCT should be actively considered.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the genetic basis for a child featuring short stature, saddle nose, cryptorchidism and mental retardation.@*METHODS@#The child and his parents were subjected to G-banded karyotyping and chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA).@*RESULTS@#The child was found to have a 46,Y,der(X)t(X;Y)(p22;q11)mat karyotype. CMA has revealed a 8.3 Mb deletion at Xp22.33p22.31 and a 43.3 Mb duplication at Yq11.221qter. His mother had a karyotype of 46,X,der(X)t(X;Y)(p22;q11). His father had a normal karyotype.@*CONCLUSION@#The child has carried an unbalanced translocation der(X)t(X;Y) (p22;q11) derived from his mother. His clinical phenotype has correlated with the size and position of X chromosome deletion. Compared with the females, abnormal phenotypes such as mental retardation and growth retardation of male carriers are more severe.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To carry out cyto- and molecular genetic testing for a child featuring facial dysmorphism and attention deficit and hyperactive disorder.@*METHODS@#The child was subjected to routine peripheral blood lymphocyte chromosomal karyotyping, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and single nucleotide polymorphism array (SNP-array) analyses.@*RESULTS@#The child's facial dysmorphism included low-set ears, curly ear auricle, protuberance of eyebrow arch, nostril notch, short and flat philtrum and thin upper lip. SNP-array revealed that he has carried a 4.883 Mb deletion at 2q37. His chromosomal karyotype was ultimately determined as 45, XY, der(2;21) (2pter→ 2q37.3::21p13→ 21p10::20p10→ 20pter), der(20) (21qter→ 21q10::20q10→ 20qter).@*CONCLUSION@#A rare case of 2q37 deletion syndrome involving three chromosomes was discovered. Combined use of various cyto- and molecular genetic techniques is crucial for the diagnosis of chromosomal abnormalities with complex structures.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the genetic basis for a neonate with Pierre-Robin sequence.@*METHODS@#The child was subjected to chromosomal karyotyping, single nucleotide polymorphism array (SNP-array)-based comparative genomic hybridization and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis.@*RESULTS@#The child has featured microgthnia, glossoptosis, upper airway obstruction, mandible dehiscence and short neck. He was found to have a karyotype of 46,XY,der(4)add(4)(q34). Her mother's karyotype was determined as 46,XX,t(1;4)(q43;q34), while his father was 46,XY. SNP-array analysis suggested the child to be arr [hg19] 1q42.2q44 (232 527 958-249 202 755)× 3; 4q34.3q35.2 (168 236 901-190 880 409)× 1. The result of SNP-array for both parents was normal. FISH analysis confirmed that his mother has carried a balanced t(1;4)(q42;34) translocation. The aberrant chromosome 4 in the child has derived from his mother's translocation, which gave rise to partial 1q trisomy and 4q monosomy.@*CONCLUSION@#The 1q42.2q44 duplication and 4q34.3q35.2 deletion of the child probably underlay his abnormal phenotype of Pierre-Robin sequence.

ABSTRACT

Secretory carcinoma of the breast (SBC) is a rare breast neoplasm. Most of the patients present at an early stage with a relatively indolent clinical course. Lymph node and distant metastasis are also very infrequent. The histomorphological features of the secretory breast carcinoma are quite characteristic. Predominantly three histological patterns, solid, microcystic, and tubular, have been noted with copious amounts of intra and extracellular secretory material. Most commonly, no positivity for estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and ERBB2(HER2/neu) is observed in SBCs. As SBC can occasionally be hormone receptor-positive, they should not be categorized in the triple-negative breast carcinoma (TNBC) group in general. A very characteristic genetic translocation t (12;15) has been noted in this rare tumor, resulting in a fusion between ETV6 and NTRK3 proteins. We present a case of a 60-year-old lady who presented with right breast lump of 1-month duration and was managed by lumpectomy and sentinel lymph node dissection. Axillary dissection was not performed because the sentinel lymph node biopsy was negative. Postoperative radiotherapy was given to the right breast with a boost to the tumor bed. No adjuvant chemotherapy was given No recurrence has been noted even after a year of the completion of treatment

ABSTRACT

Resumen Introducción: La incidencia de las anomalías congénitas es de 0,5% dentro de los cuales el 0,1-0,3% corresponden a anomalías cromosómicas estructurales, entre ellas están las translocaciones no balanceadas en las que hay pérdida o ganancia de información genética que da como resultado manifestaciones fenotípicas con compromiso en la salud de quienes las padecen. Reporte de caso: Se describe un paciente escolar con una translocación no balanceada t(5;7) (q22;p15) de origen paterno y sus repercusiones. Discusión: Cuando existen reordenamientos en el material genético, las manifestaciones clínicas están ligadas a la localización de los puntos de ruptura y como consecuencia a los genes que estén incluidos en estos segmentos, tal como se presentó en nuestro caso índice. Conclusiones: Es importante el estudio de estos pacientes ya que deben permanecer en vigilancia médica por el riesgo de desarrollar patologías relacionadas con alteraciones en los genes implicados en el reordenamiento genético.


Abstract Introduction: The incidence of congenital anomalies is 0,5%, wich 0,1 to 0,3% belong to structural chromosomic anomalies, between these are unbalanced translocations in which there are loss or gain of genetic information that results in phenotypic manifestations with health compromise of whom suffer it. Case report: A scholar patient with an unbalanced translocation t(5;7) (q22;p15) of paternal origin and its repercussions is described. Discussion: When there are rearrangements in genetic material, the clinical manifestations are linked to breakpoints localizations and as consequence to the genes included in this segments, as presented in our index case. Conclusions: The study of these patients is important because they must remain under medical surveillance due the risk of developing pathologies related with gene alterations implicated in the genetic rearrangement.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the genetic basis for a fetus with Dandy-Walker malformation.@*METHODS@#G-banding chromosomal karotyping, single nucleotide polymorphism microarray (SNP array) and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) were carried out for the fetus. Chromosomal karyotyping and FISH assay were also carried out for both parents.@*RESULTS@#SNP array has detected a 4266 kb microdeletion at 6p25.3p25.1 in the fetus, which was confirmed by FISH. FISH analysis of the parents demonstrated that the father has carried a cryptic t(6;14) (p25.1;p13) translocation, while the fetus has a der(6)t(6;14)(p25.1;p13) derived the paternal translocation.@*CONCLUSION@#The der(6)t(6;14)(p25.1;p13) probably underlies the Dandy-Walker malformation in the fetus. The 6p25.3p25.1 microdeletion is due to unbalanced gametes produced by the father's cryptic balanced translocation.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To determine the frequency, common chromosomal karyotypes and breakpoints, and involved regions among carriers of reciprocal translocations from Henan Province, and to explore the influence of common breakpoint regions on pregnancy and fetal development.@*METHODS@#For 586 carriers of reciprocal translocations, the above features were retrospectively analyzed.@*RESULTS@#The 586 reciprocal translocations were identified among 62 477 subjects, which yielded a frequency of 0.94%. Among these, 572 (0.92%) had abnormal fertility, and 14 (0.02%) had a history of abnormal fetal development. Statistical analysis showed that chromosomes 1, 4, 7 and 11 were most frequently involved, with t(11;22)(q25;q13) being the most common type of translocation. In total 437 breakpoint regions were identified, with 11q23, 22q13 and 1p36 being most frequently involved, which resulted in infertility, abortion, embryo death, congenital malformation, development delay, mental retardation or a normal phenotype.@*CONCLUSION@#Above results indicated a 0.92% carrier rate for reciprocal chromosomal translocations in Henan. The location of breakpoint regions may affect the pregnancy and/or fetal development. Discovery of such regions may enable more accurate genetic, reproductive and developmental counseling for carriers, and provide reference for delineation of function and pathogenetic mechanism of the relevant genes.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To carry out multipath cytogenetic analysis of a rare case of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with 11q23 aberration and D13S319 deletion.@*METHODS@#G+R banding technique was used to analyze the chromosomal karyotype of the patient after 24 h of cell culture. Combined interphase and metaphase fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) was used to detect specific chromosomal sites for complex translocations and minor missing fragments.@*RESULTS@#The patient was found to harbor MLL-AF10 fusion gene due to rearrangement of the mixed lineage leukemia (MLL) gene in conjunct with deletion of the D13S319 locus on chromosome 13.@*CONCLUSION@#Whether MLL gene rearrangement and absence of D13S319 locus has a double impact on AML should attract more attention. For AML patient with clonal abnormalities such as 13q-, del(13)(q14), -13 or der(13), FISH assay should be proof and considered to determine the size of missing fragment so as targeted therapy may be implemented.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To delineate the clinical features,inheritance pattern, and genotype-phenotype correlation of a Chinese patient with a 17q25.3 duplication.@*METHODS@#Whole exome sequencing(WES), chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA), chromosomal karyotyping and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) were employed for the analysis of the proband and his family members.@*RESULTS@#A 5.7 Mb duplication at 17q25.3→qter was identified by WES and CMA in the 4-year-old boy with multiple congenital anomalies, which was classified as a clinically pathogenic variant. This duplication was confirmed by FISH, and was inherited from his unaffected mother who carried a balanced translocation. Further study revealed that his grandmother also carried the balanced translocation but had gestated three healthy children and had no abortion history. His uncle also carried the balanced translocation, while his aunt was normal.@*CONCLUSION@#Above results have enriched the clinical phenotypes of 17q25.3 duplication. Genetic counseling was provided for the family. P4HB, ACTG1, BAIAP2 and TBCD genes may underlie the clinical features for the 17q25.3 duplication.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To study the potential significance and clinical application of FGFR1 gene abnormality in the diagnosis, clinical features, pathological mechanism and treatment in hematological tumors.@*METHODS@#Clinical data of total of 29 patient with chromosome of 8 short arm (8P) abnormality who had more comprehensive medical history from 2013 to 2018 were collected. The karyotype analysis of bone marrow chromosomes in patients was carried out by using chromosome R band banding technique. FGFR1 gene was detected by using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH).@*RESULTS@#Seven cases of FGFR1 gene abnormalities were decteted, including 3 cases of FGFR1 gene amplification, 2 cases of translocation, and 2 cases of deletion. Five patients with FGFR1 gene amplification or deletion not accompaned with eosinophilia, moreover the chromosome was a complex karyotype with poor prognosis; Two cases of FGFR1 gene translocation were non-complex chromosomal translocation and one of which survived for 6 years after bone marrow transplantation, the other chromosome karyotype showed no rearrangement of 8 short arm. However, FGFR1 gene rearrangement was confirmed by FISH analysis, which was a rare insertional translocation.@*CONCLUSION@#FGFR1 gene amplification or deletion often occur in cases with complex karyotype, which not accompany eosinophilia, moreover have poor prognosis. The patients with FGFR1 gene translocation accompany eosinophilia which is consistent with the clinical characteristics of myeloid / lymphoid neoplasms with FGFR1 abnormality. Karyotype analysis combined with FISH method can improve the detection of abnormal clones.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To assess the value of preimplantation genetic test (PGT) based on next generation sequencing (NGS) for achieving pregnancy for 71 couples with one partner carrying a reciprocal or Robertsonian translocation.@*METHODS@#Following blastocyst biopsy, whole genome of single cell was amplified, and PGT was performed by NGS. The subjects included 60 couples with one partner carrying a reciprocal translocation and 11 with one partner carrying a Robertsonian translocation. The results of PGT, implantation and prenatal diagnosis for all of the couples were analyzed.@*RESULTS@#In total 301 embryos were obtained for the 71 couples through 92 ovulation cycles, 287 (95.3%) of which were successfully diagnosed by NGS. Eighty-five euploidy embryos were identified for the reciprocal translocation carrier group. In 18 cycles, no euploid embryo was obtained. Cancellation rate for the cycles was 19.5%. For reciprocal translocation carrier group and Robertsonian translocation carrier group, the rates for implantation, early abortion, and clinical pregnancy were 89.3% (42/47), 25.5% (12/47), 63.8% (30/47), and 88.8% (8/9), 22.2% (2/9), and 66.6% (6/9), respectively. The result of prenatal diagnosis was consistent with the that of PGT.@*CONCLUSION@#PGT based on NGS can effectively identify euploid embryos and reduce recurrent abortions and termination of pregnancies, achieving a satisfactory rate for clinical pregnancy.

ABSTRACT

La función ovárica depende de la expresión de múltiples genes, por lo que las anomalías del cromosoma X y los autosomas revisten gran importancia en la etiología de la insuficiencia ovárica primaria (IOP). Las translocaciones de autosomas en mujeres con IOP son muy raras y solo se han detectado tres casos: dos translocaciones entre los cromosomas 2 y 15 en dos mujeres con cariotipo 46, XX, t (2, 15) (q32.3, q13.3)2; una translocación entre los cromosomas 13 y 14 en una mujer con cariotipo 45, XX, t (13; 14)3; por lo que nuestro caso sería el cuarto reporte de mujeres con translocaciones de autosomas e IOP.


Ovarian function depends on the expression of multiple genes, so Xchromosome abnormalities and autosomes are of great importance in the etiology of primary ovarian insufficiency (IOP). Autosomal translocations in women with IOP are very rare and only three cases have been detected: two translocations between chromosomes 2 and 15 in two women with karyotype 46, XX, t (2, 15) (q32.3, q13.3)2; a translocation between chromosomes 13 and 14 in a woman with karyotype 45, XX, t (13; 14)3 , so our case would be the fourth report of women with autosomal translocations and IOP.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To trace a rare case of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) with a four-way Philadelphia chromosome variant by cytogenetic analysis in order to provide a basis for the selection of treatment.@*METHODS@#Bone marrow morphology, chromosomal karyotyping, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and real-time quantitative PCR (RQ-PCR) were used for the diagnosis and staging of the disease. Point mutations in the tyrosine kinase domain of ABL1 gene were detected by Sanger sequencing.@*RESULTS@#The patient was initially diagnosed as CML in chronic phase (CML-CP) with a chromosomal karyotype of 46,XX,t(5;9;22;6)(q13;q34;q11;q25), while FISH revealed presence of a variant Philadelphia chromosome translocation. Clonal evolution has occurred after 38 months of tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) treatment, when cytogenetic analysis revealed coexisting t(5;9;22;6)(q13;q34;q11;q25) and t(5;9;22;6;17)(q13;q34;q11;q25;q11). After 57 months of TKIs treatment, only the t(5;9;22;6;17) clone was detected. Three months later, hyperdiploidy with additional abnormalities were detected in addition to t(5;9;22;6;17). Three mutations, including p.Tyr253Phe, p.Thr315Ile and p.Gly250Glu, were identified in the tyrosine kinase domain of the ABL1 gene during the course of disease. The patient did not attain cytogenetic and molecular response to TKIs.@*CONCLUSION@#The four-way variant translocation may be genetically unstable. Clonal evolution and genetic mutations are likely to occur during TKIs treatment, resulting in poor response to drug therapy. This observation, however, needs to be confirmed by large-scale studies.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the origin and mechanism of small supernumerary marker chromosomes (sSMC) in three fetuses.@*METHODS@#The three fetuses were predicted to have carried chromosomal abnormalities by non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT). G-banding chromosomal karyotyping analysis were carried out on amniotic fluid samples of the fetuses and peripheral blood samples from their parents. Single nucleotide polymorphism array (SNP-array) was used to determine the origin, size and genetic effect of sSMCs.@*RESULTS@#In fetus 1, SNP array has detected two microduplications respectively at 4p16.3p15.2 (24.7 Mb) and 18p11.32q11.2 (20.5 Mb) which, as verified by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), have derived from a balanced 46,XY,t(4;18)(p15.2q11.2) translocation carried by its father. Fetus 2 has carried a de novo microduplication of 15q11.2-q13.3 (9.7 Mb). The sequence of SMC in fetus 3 has derived from 21q11.2-q21.1 (8.3 Mb), which was inherited from its mother.@*CONCLUSION@#Both NIPT and SNP-array are highly accurate for the detection of sSMC. SNP-array can delineate the origin and size of abnormal chromosomes, which in turn can help with clarification of sSMC-related genotype-phenotype correlation and facilitate prenatal diagnosis and genetic counseling for the family.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the pathogenesis and genetic characteristics of a fetus with a der(X)t(X;Y)(p22.3;q11.2) karyotype.@*METHODS@#G-banding karyotyping analysis, BoBs (BACs-on-Beads) assay, and single nucleotide polymorphism array (SNP-array) were used to delineate the structural chromosomal aberration of the fetus. The parents of the fetus were also subjected to karyotyping analysis.@*RESULTS@#The fetus and its mother were both found to have a karyotype of 46,X,add(X)(p22), while the father was normal. BoBs assay indicated that there was a lack of Xp22 but a gain of Yq11 signal. SNP-array confirmed that the fetus and its mother both had a 7.13 Mb deletion at Xp22.33p22.31 (608 021-7 736 547) and gain of a 12.52 Mb fragment at Yq11.221q11.23 (16 271 151-28 788 643).@*CONCLUSION@#The fetus was determined to have a karyotype of 46,X,der(X)t(X;Y)(p22.3;q11.2)mat. The combined use of various methods has facilitated delineation of the fetal chromosomal aberration and prediction of the risk prediction for subsequent pregnancy.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To conduct genetic analysis in a fetus with complex translocation of four chromosomes.@*METHODS@#G-banded chromosome karyotype analysis, single nucleotide polymorphism array (SNP array) and fluorescence hybridization (FISH) were performed in a fetus with multiple malformations. Peripheral blood chromosome karyotype and FISH were also carried out for the parents.@*RESULTS@#The fetal amniotic fluid karyotype was 46, XY, t(12; 13)(q22; q32). SNP array analysis showed that there were 20 192 kb duplication at 1q42.13q44 and 13 293 kb deletion at 15q26.1q26.3 in the fetus. The results of karyotype and SNP array were inconsistent. FISH analyses on the parental peripheral blood samples demonstrated that the mother was a cryptic 46, XX, t(1; 15)(q42.1; q26.1) translocation. The fetus had inherited 46, XY, t(12; 13)(q22; q32) from his father and der(15)t(1; 15)(q42.1; q26.1) from his mother.@*CONCLUSIONS@#The 1q42.13q44 duplication and 15q26.1q26.3 deletion may have contributed to the abnormal sonographic features of the fetus. The combination of cytogenetic, SNP array and FISH techniques was beneficial for providing an accurate genetic counseling.
