    Three translocations each involving C or G chromosomes are reported. A familial translocation t(Cq+; Eq−) was identified to be rcp(6;18) (q2;q1) and two malformed children were then found to have a 46,XY(or XX),−6, +der(6) constitution. One of the carrier's pregnancy in this family was monitored by amniocentesis and a fetus was identified as being a male translocation carrier (balanced). Two other translocations were identified as rcp(11;14) (q12 or 13;q32?) and t(17;22) (p12 or 13?;q11?), respectively.
