Ring-14 and trisomy 14q in the same child

Ann Genet. 1984;27(1):38-40.


The case of a male child with three cell lines is described: one cell line with ring chromosome 14, another trisomic for 14q, due to a derived metacentric 14q;14q, and a third one with a normal male karyotype. The clinical findings are compatible with those of the r(14) syndrome.
