Abstract

Cytogenetic investigation of 2,324 Japanese couples with repeated pregnancy loss revealed that 4.91% of couples (n = 114) had chromosome abnormalities including reciprocal translocation (n = 74), Robertsonian translocation (n = 23), and inversion (n = 10). Parental reciprocal translocation was a significant predictor of subsequent miscarriage (adjusted odds ratio: 3.6, 95% confidence interval: 1.8-7.1), and most of the miscarriages of the carrier couples were inevitable because of abnormal karyotypes, despite appropriate treatments.
