Abstract

A (14;21) homozygous Robertsonian translocation was detected by first-trimester prenatal diagnosis. The related parents were heterozygous for the same translocation. At birth the baby was physically normal and had a normal psychomotor development. Together with a few previous observations in living homozygotes for (13;14) translocations, this case corroborates the idea that these subjects with 44 chromosomes are healthy without dysmorphic features.
