Objective of the Paper: To demonstrate the efficiency of pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT) with Illumina high throughput sequencing in patients with aggravated obstetric and gynaecological history (as exemplified by case reports).

Key Points. The study of the karyotype in patients with reproduction disorders function (RFD) is a golden standard and a mandatory step in examination of couples who plan for pregnancy. The most advanced method for genetic testing of embryos allowing simultaneous identification of aneuploidies and unbalanced chromosomal pathologies is the method of high throughput sequencing (Next Generation Sequencing, NGS).

In this article, we describe two cases of PGT with NGS in couples with RFD. When the couples were enrolled into the assisted reproductive technology program, one couple had normal karyotype; and in the other couple, the woman had reciprocal translation between 2 and 7 chromosomes: 46,XX,t(2;7)(p21;q36). However, examination of the embryos in these couples demonstrated that initially karyotypes of the women had been incorrectly identified.

Conclusion. In RFD, awareness of the break points in chromosome rearrangements is potentially important, because they can greatly impact selection of the method for subsequent genetical testing of the embryo. Illumina high throughput sequencing can be successfully used in patients with karyotype alternations, even if the parent karyotype is identified incorrectly or is unknown.
