We present detection of de novo del(18)(q22.2) and a familial 15q13.2-q13.3 microduplication in a fetus with congenital heart defects (CHD).
A 27-year-old, primigravid woman was referred for genetic counseling because of fetal CHD. Prenatal ultrasound at 17 weeks of gestation revealed pericardial effusion, cardiomegaly and a large ventricular septal defect. The pregnancy was subsequently terminated at 18 weeks of gestation, and a 192-g female fetus was delivered with facial dysmorphism. Cytogenetic analysis of the umbilical cord revealed a karyotype of 46,XX,del(18)(q22.2). The parental karyotypes were normal. Array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) of the placental tissue revealed a 2.08-Mb 15q13.2-q13.3 microduplication encompassing KLF13 and CHRNA7, and a 10.74-Mb 18q22.2-q23 deletion encompassing NFATC1. The phenotypically normal father carried the same 2.08-Mb 15q13.2-q13.3 microduplication. Polymorphic DNA marker analysis confirmed a paternal origin of the distal 18q deletion.
Prenatal diagnosis of CHD should include a complete genetic study of the embryonic tissues, and the acquired information is useful for genetic counseling.
