Abstract

This brief write-up is with reference to our 1-year (May 2003- May 2004) experience at the Department of Molecular Biology and Immunology at Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, New Delhi. Cytogenetics of 60 patients with amenorrhoea, recurrent abortions, infertility, monosomy X, chromosome mosaics, pseudohermaphoditism and Downs syndrome was carried out. The importance of chromosome studies followed by genetic counseling is stressed in this present paper.
