As far as is known, this is the first report of a successful pregnancy outcome following preimplantation genetic diagnosis for a chromosome translocation in embryos generated from in-vitro matured oocytes. A couple presented to the study clinic where the female partner was a carrier of the reciprocal chromosome translocation 46,XX,t(1;20)(p36.1;p12.2) with three consecutive pregnancy terminations due to either fetal abnormality or unbalanced translocation products detected in the conceptus. Under routine ultrasound investigation she was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries. The patient underwent an in-vitro maturation/preimplantation genetic diagnosis cycle where the immature oocytes were matured in vitro and fertilized by intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Day-3 embryos were screened for the chromosome abnormality by fluorescent in-situ hybridization. A single embryo diagnosed as chromosomally normal/balanced was transferred on day 5 and resulted in the birth of a healthy child.
