Two siblings with an unbalanced cytogenetic composition are described: a brother with partial trisomy 5p and distal 15q microdeletion, and a sister with partial monosomy 5p and distal 15q microduplication, resulting from a familial balanced translocation 46,XY; t(5;15)(p14.2;q26.2). To our best knowledge, there are no previous clinical and cytogenetic reports in the literature describing a family with concomitant presence of such a unique mirror combination. Clinical features of pure imbalances and the effects of their combination are discussed.
