    A family with a whole arm translocation t(13;18)(13p18p;13q18q) was ascertained through a stillbirth with clinical features suggestive of trisomy 18. Two subsequent pregnancies both spontaneously aborted; one was found to have a 69,XXX,t(13;18)mat chromosome constitution while the other had a 45,XY,-13,-18, + der(18)t(13;18)mat chromosome constitution.
