    Abstract: "Objectives
    To present prenatal diagnosis and molecular cytogenetic characterization of de novo partial partial trisomy 21q (21q22.11 → qter) associated with clinodactyly and hypoplastic midphalanx of the fifth fingers, midface hypoplasia, and an intracardiac echogenic focus on prenatal ultrasound.

    Materials, Methods, and Results
    A 34-year-old gravida 2, para 1 woman underwent amniocentesis at 20 weeks of gestation because of fetal structural abnormalities on prenatal ultrasound. A level II ultrasound at 20 weeks of gestation showed polyhydramnios, clinodactyly and hypoplastic midphalanx of the fifth fingers, midface hypoplasia, and an intracardiac echogenic focus. Amniocentesis revealed an aberrant derivative chromosome 9, or der(9). Parental karyotypes were normal. Spectral karyotyping (SKY) and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analyses revealed that the der(9) contained a segment of chromosome 21 distal to chromosome 9q, and FISH analysis additionally showed that the distal subtelomeric region of 9q was not deleted. Array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) demonstrated a 14.8-Mb duplication of distal 21q encompassing the Down syndrome critical region (DSCR) but no genomic imbalance in the distal euchromatic region of chromosome 9. The karyotype was 46,XX,der(9)t(9;21) (q34.3;q22.11)dn. Polymorphic DNA marker analysis revealed the maternal origin of the aberrant chromosome. The pregnancy was subsequently terminated. A malformed female fetus was delivered with a characteristic phenotype of Down syndrome.

    Conclusion
    SKY, FISH and aCGH are useful in prenatal investigation of the nature of a de novo aberrant derivative chromosome. Partial trisomy 21q encompassing the DSCR may present characteristic Down syndrome features on prenatal ultrasound."
