Reciprocal translocation in the progenitor

Reciprocal translocation in the progenitor

When looking for the causes of repeated miscarriage, a karyotype is performed on both members of the couple. This test makes it possible to observe the set of chromosomes of an individual and, therefore, serves to diagnose certain chromosomal alterations.

Among these chromosomal alterations, there are some that can be balanced and have no effect on the individual who carries them. However, the gametes produced by the carrier may be unbalanced, giving rise to embryos with an altered genetic endowment that may compromise their viability and lead to miscarriage.
