    Abstract: OBJECTIVE:
    To present perinatal findings, modes of ascertainments, and modes of segregation in unbalanced reciprocal translocations detected at amniocentesis.
    Between January 1987 and July 2010, 40 cases with unbalanced reciprocal translocations were diagnosed by amniocentesis at Mackay Memorial Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan. The 40 cases originated from 29 families; 21 families with one case, 7 families with two cases, and 1 family with five cases.
    Of 40 cases, 33 (82.5%) presented fetal ultrasound abnormalities and 7 (17.5%) presented no ultrasound abnormalities. Of 40 cases, 36 (90%) had a segregation mode of adjacent-1 2:2 segregation, 3 (7.5%) had a segregation mode of 3:1 segregation with tertiary trisomy, and 1 (2.5%) had a segregation mode of 3:1 segregation with tertiary monosomy. Of 29 families, 7 (24.1%) had de novo translocations and 22 (75.9%) had inherited translocations. In seven de novo cases, the main modes of ascertainments included abnormal ultrasound findings (n = 5) and advanced maternal age (n = 2). In 22 inherited families, the main modes of first ascertainment included abnormal ultrasound findings (n = 8), a previous aneuploid child (n = 8), advanced maternal age (n = 4), parental carrier status (n = 1), and abnormal maternal serum screening results (n = 1). Among 22 inherited families, 9 (40.9%) had a known parental carrier status, but 13 (59.1%) were unaware of parental carrier status at amniocentesis.
    Unbalanced reciprocal translocations detected at amniocentesis are frequently associated with abnormal ultrasound findings. Prenatal diagnosis of an unbalanced translocation may incidentally detect a balanced translocation in the family. Prenatal diagnosis of fetal structural abnormalities should alert structural chromosome rearrangements and prompt cytogenetic analysis of the fetus and parents if necessary.
