Trisomy 6q22 leads to 6qter due to maternal 6;21 translocation. Case report review of the literature

Ann Genet. 1983;26(4):243-6.


Partial trisomy for the long arm of chromosome 6, involving 6q22 leads to 6qter, was observed in a 2-month-old male infant. The mother was 6q;21p translocation carrier. A review of the previously published cases with trisomies of different 6q segments suggests that the critical segment responsible for the clinically recognizable phenotype of 6q trisomy seems to be limited to bands 6q26 and/or 6q27.
