I am interested in any information regarding the outcome of a fetus
with a 1,5 balanced translocation. One parent also exhibits this
karyotype and is phenotypically normal.
Specifically is there any reliable data to support the supposition that
the risk to the fetus is no higher than the so called "background risk" of
a "normal" karyotype.
Is there any testing available to evaluate for a submicroscopic
deletion as a result of this balanced translocation?
