Atypical Duffy Blood Group Inheritance and Chromosome Abnormalities

Abstract

Baikie, Garson and Birrell report in the following communication their discovery of a child who was a mosaic of cells trisomic for a chromosome of the group 17–18 and cells trisomic for a chromosome of the group 13–15. Three cells of a total of 60 were trisomic for both chromosomes. The child had many congenital abnormalities most of which are associated with trisomy 17–18, but microphthalmia and posterior prominence of the heels which occur in trisomy 13–15 were also present.
