Pericentric inversion in chromosome 2(p11q13) in two cases

Figen Celep1, Ahmet Karagüzel1

Pericentric inversion of chromosome 2 was detected in two cases with cytogenetic analyses. Chromosome analyses were performed on routinely cultured peripheral blood lymphocytes. Slides were processed for trypsin-Giemsa banding. This study, and data from the literature, suggests that the pericentric inversion of chromosome 2 is generally considered a benign familial variant without significant reproductive consequences. Generally, inherited phenotypic or developmental abnormality and, even in a rare de novo form, has been found to be benign. According to the literature, the implications for management in these cases are discussed.
