A study of chromosomes was performed in 24 parental pairs and in 6 mothers who repeatedly gave birth to offspring with fetal lesions, i.e., in 54 cases. Chromosomal abnormalities were noted in about 3% of the pairs (4% of the mothers and 1.5% of the fathers). If exception is made of the pairs exhibiting alternatively spontaneous miscarriages and newborns with congenital abnormalities, the remaining group, which is small, exhibits chromosomal abnormality in 50% of the instances (6 cases out of 12).
