A case of trisomy of chromosome No. 10 in mosaic is described in a boy who died at the age of 6 months. The frequency of pathological cells is less than 30% (28% from lymphocytes, 20% from fibroblasts); it is possible, anyway, to rule out the hypothesis of a cellular cloning in vitro, since the trisomy 10 was observed in two different cultures, terminated after 48 and 72 hours. Six percent of cultured maternal lymphocytes were also trisomic for chromosome 10. The morphological features of the present case are compared with those of the boy described by Higurashi et al. in 1969.
