Objective: About 15% of clinically recognized pregnancies result in spontaneous abortion in the first trimester and the vast majority of these are the result of chromosome abnormalities. Studies of chromosomal constitutions of first trimester spontaneous abortions have revealed that at least 50% of the abortions have an abnormal karyotype. In this study we aimed to report the single centre experience of anomalies detected in spontaneous abortions.
