Recurrent Triploidy of Maternal Origin

Case Reports

Recurrent Triploidy of Maternal Origin

E Pergament et al. Prenat Diagn.


We report the occurrence of triploid preimplantation embryos following in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in a woman with two previously-identified triploid conceptuses which spontaneously underwent fetal demise at 10 and 23 weeks' gestation. An error in maternal meiosis II is proposed as the most likely cause.
