Chromosome Abnormalities

A chromosome anomaly, abnormality, aberration, or mutation is a missing, extra, or irregular portion of chromosomal DNA. It can be from an atypical number of chromosomes or a structural abnormality in one or more chromosomes. Most chromosome abnormalities originate in the egg or sperm (gametes) but some happen during embryo development or are inherited from a parent.
