Partial Trisomy 16p and Monosomy 9p (unbalanced translocation)
Our daughter was born with an unbalanced translocation of 9/16. She has multiple congenital abnormalities including a VSD and an incomplete cleft palate. She is feeding through a G-tube. She is developing slowly but surely and we really do not have any answers on how far she will go, but we are giving it our all!
My husband and I were tested to see if either one of us were carriers of a genetic disorder. The tests came back saying I have a balanced translocation 9/16. My sister also has a child with the same translocation and her tests came back with the same results as mine. Our mother had a child 31 years ago with multiple abnormalities. He was diagnosed as a measles baby. We recently got genetic studies back on him and he also has the same unbalanced translocation 9/16.
