ABSTRACT: We describe a 12-year-old patient, the second live born prenatally ascertained patient in the literature, with a de novo isodicentric X chromosome, karyotype 46,X,idic(X)(q24), with normal growth and development and lack of dysmorphic features. Molecular and cytogenetic studies were performed to further characterize the isodicentric chromosome X behavior. Literature on isodicentric X chromosomes with various breakpoints on Xq is reviewed and summarized.
