Pericentric Inversion of Chromosome 9 in both partners of a non-consanguineous couple with spontaneous abortions
THE FIRST CASE REPORT
The balanced pericentric inversion of chromosome 9, inv(9) despite being considered a normal variant has been frequently observed and reported in individual partners with spontaneous abortions. To the best of our knowledge, we report the first case of this chromosomal abnormality in both partners of a non-consanguineous marriage. This report highlights that inv(9) in both partners may be leading to unbalanced rearrangements in the fetus thereby leading to spontaneous abortions.
