A small supernumerary marker chromosome (sSMC) is defined as an abnormal chromosome that is generally equal in size to or smaller than chromosome 20, and its derivation cannot be detected by conventional chromosomal banding techniques [1].
Unfortunately, comparative studies aimed at examining chromosomal banding pattern and/or applications of FISH techniques are still rare (Wahrman et al.
