We present prenatal diagnosis of a familial 1q21.1-q21.2 microdeletion in a fetus with polydactyly of left foot on prenatal ultrasound.
A 30-year-old, gravida 2, para 1, woman underwent amniocentesis at 22 weeks of gestation because of fetal polydactyly of left foot and echogenic heart foci on prenatal ultrasound. She and her husband and the 2-year-old son were healthy, and there was no family history of mental disorders, skeletal abnormalities and congenital malformations. Amniocentesis revealed a karyotype of 46,XX. Simultaneous array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) analysis on the DNA extracted from uncultured amniocytes revealed a 1.317-Mb 1q21.1-q21.2 microdeletion encompassing PRKAB2, FMO5, CHD1L, BCL9, ACP6, GJA5, GJA8 and GPR89B. aCGH analysis of the family members revealed that the phenotypically normal father and elder son carried the same 1q21.1-q21.2 microdeletion. The mother did not have such a deletion. The parents elected to continue the pregnancy, and a 3416-g female baby was delivered at 40 weeks of gestation with neither facial dysmorphism nor gross abnormalities except postaxial polydactyly of the left foot.
Fetuses with a 1q21.1-q21.2 microdeletion may present polydactyly on prenatal ultrasound, and aCGH is helpful for prenatal diagnosis under such a circumstance.
