Chromosomal translocations are rare. The unbalanced translocations may lead to structural malformations. The balanced translocations may not result in phenotypic alterations, as there is no loss or gain of genetic material. We are reporting here, a case of a balanced translocation carrier 46XX t(4;13) and her pregnancy outcome. Ultrasound at 11-12 weeks of gestation for determining the nuchal translucency thickness and for prenatal genetic testing might be considered as a part of the investigations for pregnancies with a parental balanced chromosomal translocation.
