Abstract

We describe a patient with 47,XY,del(5)(p11p13), +mar observed in prenatal screening. We performed analyses including G-banding, multi-color fluorescent in situ hybridization (mFISH) for fetal chromosome detection. After birth array-based comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH), bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC)-FISH was carried out to define the chromosomal changes precisely. The mFISH revealed that a ring chromosome that had originated from chromosome 5. The aCGH showed that this fetus had a terminal duplication, an interstitial deletion, and a pericentromeric duplication of the short arm of chromosome 5. This complex alteration resulted in partial trisomy 5p15.33-p15.31, partial monosomy 5p14.3-p13.2, and partial trisomy 5p12-p11. To clarify these alterations, we performed BAC-FISH using BAC clones related to deleted and duplicated regions, and found that a derivative (der) chromosome 5 showed the presence of hybridization signals from the duplicated region at 5p15.33 and the loss of hybridization signals from the deleted region at 5p14.2. In addition, FISH analysis confirmed the origin of the marker chromosome. Hybridization signals from the second intervening sequence at 5p13.1, between the deleted region and the pericentric duplicated region, were present on the marker ring chromosome.
