In this paper, the clinical cytogenetic and molecular cytogenetic findings in a patient with a balanced reciprocal translocation was reported involving chromosomes 11 and 13 identified by a simple silver staining technique.
Emanuel Syndrome (ES) is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of supernumerary derivative (der)(22) translocation(t)(11;22) due to an inherited chromosomal imbalance through 3:1 segregation during meiosis I, of a reciprocal translocation (11;22) from one of the progenitors (1).
The presence of the BCR-ABL1 fusion gene in CML is an essential feature not only for establishing diagnosis but also for monitoring response to treatment.7 Classically, in majority of the patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia, this BCR-ABL1 fusion gene results from a reciprocal translocation involving the long arms of chromosome 9 and chromosome 22.

The analysis of chromosomal aberrations was classified as numeric (autosomal trisomy -21, 18, 13, 17, 7-, monosomy, triploidy, and sex CA), structural (inversion, deletion, de novo marker, Robertsonian translocation, reciprocal translocation, chromosomal variant), and single gene disorders (fragile X syndrome, maple syrup disease, spinal muscular atrophy, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, thalassemia).
Chromosome study, performed according to routine procedures, revealed an apparently balanced reciprocal translocation involving the short arm of chromosome 1(p2) and the long arm of the X chromosome (q2) in all the cells with the following karyotype: 46,X,t(1;X)(p13;q22).
