    Abstract: Objective
    We present fetoplacental cytogenetic discrepancy in a pregnancy with prenatally detected mosaic tetrasomy 12p by amniocentesis.

    Case report
    A 34-year-old woman underwent amniocentesis at 17 weeks of gestation because of advanced maternal age. Cytogenetic analysis of cultured amniocytes revealed a karyotype of 47,XX,+i(12)(p10)[7]/46,XX[16]. Array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) analysis of the DNA extracted from cultured amniocytes revealed arr (12p)×3, (X)×2. Prenatal ultrasound findings were unremarkable. The pregnancy was subsequently terminated, and a fetus was delivered with facial dysmorphism consistent with the clinical features of Pallister–Killian syndrome (PKS). Postnatal cytogenetic analysis of the cultured cells from umbilical cord, skin, cord blood and placenta revealed 47,XX,+i(12)(p10)[6]/46,XX[34] in umbilical cord, 47,XX,+i(12)(p10)[11]/46,XX[29] in skin, 47,XX,+i(12)(p10)[3]/46,XX[47] in cord blood and 46,XX[40] in placenta. The mosaic tetrasomy 12p levels of the umbilical cord, skin, cord blood and placenta were 15%, 27.5%, 6% and 0%, respectively. aCGH analysis of the DNA extracted from uncultured cord blood and placenta revealed arr 12p13.33p11.1 (230,421-34,756,209)×3.0 in cord blood but no genomic imbalance in placenta. Polymorphic DNA marker analysis showed a maternal origin of the supernumerary isochromosome 12p in cord blood but biparental inheritance with equal fluorescent activity in placenta.

    Conclusion
    Pregnancy with fetal PKS and mosaic tetrasomy 12p may present fetoplacental cytogenetic discrepancy. Therefore, genetic analysis on placenta alone may fail to detect fetal mosaic tetrasomy 12p associated with PKS.
