6.7 Mb interstitial duplication in chromosome band 11q24.2q25 associated with infertility, minor dysmorphic features and normal psychomotor development

Eur J Med Genet. 2008 Nov-Dec;51(6):666-71. doi: 10.1016/j.ejmg.2008.07.009. Epub 2008 Aug 12.


We report on a healthy man with high normal intelligence, minor dysmorphic features and infertility due to hypogonadism and azoospermia. Cytogenetic analysis showed a 6.7Mb duplication in chromosome band 11q24.2q25, which could be confirmed with FISH and molecular karyotyping using an Affymetrix GeneChip Human Mapping 250K Nsp SNP array.
