Abstract

Double balanced translocations are particularly rare and the risk of a fetus with an unbalanced chromosomal anomaly is greater than for single translocation carriers. In this present case, we describe an interesting family history which included three generations. A couple, married for 4 years, was referred to the genetic clinic due to infertility and family chromosome anomalies. A GTG-band chromosome analysis indicated that the male partner's karyotype was 45, XY, t(3; 18)(q11; ptel)t(13; 14)(q10; q10). The same double balanced translocation was found in two others family members.
