As chromosomes are the vectors of genetic information transmitted from one generation to the other, it is to be expected that any alteration in the number or organisation of the chromosomes may be of importance. Chromosome aberrations are specially effective in the performance of the reproductive system: reduced fertility or complete sterility, embryonic or fetal mortality, congenital malformations and perinatal death may all result from chromosomal variation.
