Abstract

The frequency of chromosomal abnormalities in the general population, underestimated for quite some time, is beginning to be better understood since the introduction of routine chromosomal analysis during epidemiological investigations. It is currently accepted that out of every 140 live births, one neonate displays a balanced or unbalanced chromosome abnormality.1,2
