Notable Features



Representative SKY Karyotype





53 (51-54), XX, + iso(1), del(2), +6,+7,+8,+13, iso(14), iso(15),+16. One copy each of 5, 9 and 10 may be abnormal.

The 11;21 translocation in the metaphase shown was only present in one metaphase, and the apparent blue band across one chromosome 9 is a overlap with another chromosome.
