Case
----

Due to triple test referral, my friend had an amniocentesis done.

Results
-------

The investigation showed that a large metacentric chromosome present,
this is due to centric fusion between a no. 14 and a no. 15 chromosome
(45,XY,-14,-15,+t(14q15q), this chromosome is present in the father.
Therefore the baby is the carrier of a "Familial Robertsonian Translocation".

Other known facts
-----------------

My friend has suffered multiple miscarriages.

Quest
-----

I would like information on above metioned result, ie impact, effect etc.
