Partial trisomy 20p resulting from a recombination of a familial pericentric inversion

Hum Genet. 1986 Dec;74(4):417-9. doi: 10.1007/BF00280496.


Recombination of an inherited pericentric inversion of chromosome 20 has given rise to a child with partial trisomy 20p. To our knowledge no previous familial inversions of this chromosome have been described in the literature.
