Mosaicism of Trisomy of 16 Pairs of Chromosomes with Partial Situs Inversus and Levocardia Observation of Extremely Rare Anomaly from 1st Trimester to Neonatal Period- Case Report

Open access


This is case report of extremely rare mosaic trisomy of 16th pair of chromosomes from the high risk pregnancy (maternal age 35 years old, positive screeining in 1st trimester). The fetus presented with intrauterine growth retardation, congenital heart defect, dysmorphic features and skeletal anomalies. The case has been observed until hospitalization in pediatric cardiology department. Other similar cases have been analysed.
